Remember that Cliché, “Half of the Marriages End in Divorce”?

Arts new girlfriend comes with baggage!
-Art Bulinski

It gets thrown out there time and time again, almost as if to prove some ambiguous point. Well, the truth is, the divorce rate has been dropping every year since 1980. And is at a low of about 36% of first time marriages ending in divorce.

So, the next time a well meaning friend throws out 50% you can be a smarty-pants and say well, it’s actually 36%. Another interesting statistic is that 74% of Christian marriages end in divorce and only 20% of atheist and agnostic marriages end in divorce. I guess with a belief in a higher power who needs to stay with a wife you can get a new one in heaven.
