    U.S. Divorce Statistics
    Marriage and Divorce: Latest Stats Available Here's a sampling of some of the most recently available statistics on marriage and divorce in the United States of America:

    • There were approximately 2,230,000 marriages in 2005 -- down from 2,279,000 the previous year, despite a total population increase of 2.9 million over the same period.
    • The divorce rate in 2005 (per 1,000 people) was 3.6 -- the lowest rate since 1970, and down from 4.2 in 2000 and from 4.7 in 1990. (The peak was at 5.3 in 1981, according to the Associated Press.)
    • The marriage rate in 2005 (per 1,000) was 7.5, down from 7.8 the previous year.
    • In 2004, the state with the highest reported divorce rate was Nevada, at 6.4 (per 1,000). Arkansas was a close second, with a divorce rate of 6.3, followed by Wyoming at 5.3.

    The men's and fathers' movement needs to make sure it never sees females as the enemy,
    but only misandry--whether from females or from males.
    If not, we'll become like the bigoted feminists that this movement was formed to oppose.

    Cum dilectione hominum et odio vitiorum
    Love the Sinner but not the Sin.
    (St. Augustine)

    For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against Principalities, against Powers,
    against the Rulers of the Darkness of this world, against Spiritual Wickedness in high places.
    (and within ourselves)


    A Feminist is a human being who has lost her way and turned vicious. If you meet one on the road as you
    Go your Own Way, offer kindness but keep your sword drawn.

    Quote Quote from Billy View Post
    Wow
    .....hard to believe:
    10% of couples where the wife works and husband don't.
    16% of divorced women paying child support sounds higher than it seems.
    About husband doesn't work and wife works: maybe jobless for a while?

    About women paying child-support: Maybe something like one child is living with her, and another child with the father?
    Or the child is already 18+, living with the mother, and she pays for higher education?
