Divorce Rate is Down across the US

In a recent Time Magazine report, it was discovered that the divorce rate across the country is down to 3.6 per 1000 people, it’s lowest number since 1970.  Cause for Celebration?  Probably Not.

You see, while the divorce rate is down, the number of unmarried couples living together is up 10-fold since 1960.  So the divorce rate is down which is good, but that may be caused by the fact that people are not getting married and living together instead.

Sometimes we have to look at all the factors before we celebrate!  Go here to see divorce rates by state. (Check out the D.C. stats- divorce rate has dropped 50.9%- highest drop in the country!)
