  • lol you don't wish me to go there and cuss all night
  • Because we have forgotten how to communicate.... and show compassion for our mates...
  • Because people are more selfish now than ever. People no longer stop to consider their partners feelings, they are no longer willing to sacrifice. It's the "it's all about me" era and this doesn't just apply to the youth. I don't care if your gay, straight, or a martian, people no longer have respect for anything but themselves.
  • Number one reason? Marriage.
  • marriage licenses are to cheap
  • Unmet expectations.
  • I think it's directly related to the rate of getting caught in a "pants down" situation !! lol :) +5
  • Many reasons: 1- Women are no longer financially dependant on men and therefore don't put up with crap anymore like cheating or violence. That's a GOOD change in society. 2- People often get married for the wrong reason ( an unwanted baby for example ). 3- 1 of the 2 partners could become addicted to drugs, alcohol or gambling. I actually knew a girl who's mother divorced her 1st husband because he became addicted to gambling and was driving them broke. 4- People get tired of each other and don't care anymore. 5- 1 partner will not work and be a financial leech on the other partner and they lose respect for them.
  • I remember reading that most divorces actually happen in the bible belt. So it seems that some of the reasons are -They married before they got to know each other but wanted to have sanctioned sex. --So they either don't like each other. --Or want more than the other is able to give. -They had to, she's pregnant. --Again, so they either don't like each other. --Or want more than the other is able to give. -One spouse changed their religion and it tears apart the relationship.
  • The lack of communication and tyring to rule each others and they do not have emotional feelings after marriage ,and others are not faithfull to each others.
  • I believe that many rush to be married when they are to young or unfamiliar ...
  • We live in a throwaway society my friend. If something needs repair it's cheaper to buy a new one. It's easier to go out and get a replacement than to work on fixing what is broken. That's my guess. Have no idea what the "experts" would say. :(
  • lack of mutual understanding before marriage. +5
  • people get married for the wrong reasons. nobody talks about important life issues before making an important life commitment.
  • It's high everywhere, except for the few backwards countries that don't allow divorce. +5
  • 1. Lack of respect and/or understanding of marriage. 2. Selfishness in one, or both partners. 3. Unspoken and over the top expectations of one another. 4. People finally realize it takes more than love to make a marriage work. 5. Marrying the wrong person going in, and believing they'll change. And, you're the one who CAN change them. 6. Not knowing someone long enough to know if they're right for you. 7. Irresponsibility. 8. Fear of being stuck (as some would say) with the same person for the rest of your life. 9. Thinking you're missing out on all the fun you used to have when you were single. 10. Fear of changing into someone you don't recognize anymore and you no longer have control over your life. 11. Immaturity.
  • Because they don't want to invest time in their relationship.
  • Today people take less personal responsiblity, look for the easy way out, and break their commitments.
  • Because this country lost site of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
  • 1. Because people get married without truly knowing each other. 2. Because people get married for stupid reasons. 3. Because people are unwilling to make behavior changes for someone they claim to love. 4. Because people seem to think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence. 5. Because people think divorce is the easy way out of a situation in which they might actually have to change something about themselves.
  • It's either A) one or both people changed after marriage. or B) One or both people had no idea what they were doing when they got married.
  • Actually it's higher that you thought, because some couple stay married because of financial situation. One party doesn't want to lose their wealth if they are officially divorced. The adultery rate is HIGH here.
  • The courts have made it this way, because of the deadly assaults created in domestic violence. Better to give a divorce, than attend a funeral.
  • self sacrifice is the nature of love. This new society is almost entirely self serving. That just cant bode well for a functional and loving marriage. Add to that, the unreasonable expectations of the new society and you have a toxic mix that can only end in a big BOOM (divorce.)
  • The grass appears greener, and have you seen their flower beds.......?
  • its a good for new generation..i am searching that female those r divorces..r u?
  • Because people dont realize the actual commitment intended for it. People always like to hear the words "I wanna marry him/her" but they dont fully recognize the significane of marriage. They dont. And i think divorce is the most evil idea ive heard as of yet. You not only break a SIGNIFICANT promise with ur spouse, but u also break one with GOD.
  • I don't know maybe because of the view that marriage has now a days is nothing compared to other countries. In other countries its more of a traditional kinda unlike americans who just do it because they got someone pregnant
  • abuse, secrets, partners not ready for commitment
