Divorce likelihood?

The divorce rate in the US peaked in the 80s - early 90s and has been declining ever since. I don't know if there's been any data (or how meaningful it would be in relation to today's population) - but:

Do you think someone is more likely to get married and divorced if their parents were divorced?

Do you think people whose parents did not divorce are less likely to themselves?

I am betting there is at least 1 official study by professionals out there on this subject that answers your very questions. Perhaps an introduction to Mr. Google would help?

In seriousness, I know nothing of the subject. I would imagine most people would think someone whose parents divorced would be more likely to get a divorce themselves, and vice versa.

Google can provide information on divorce rate statistics and such, however, with the peak of divorce in the 80s-90s the children from such marriages would just be approaching marriage age themselves over the next 5-10 years. I don't know that there's meaningful studies that would reflect today's culture.

I think that people whose parents were divorced are more likely to divorce than people whose parents didn't divorce. I don't have an opinion on whether either group is more or less likely to marry.

I wonder if divorce rates are dropping because people are simply cohabitating and not getting married in the first place. I wonder if marriage rates are on the decline.

I believe marriage rates are still declining.

IF marriage rates are on the decline wouldn't divorce rates naturally follow?

My parents have not divorced nor had my paternal grandparents. Yet I was divorced in my 20's. My wife's mother has been married 3x and her father twice. Her sister has been divorced 3x. Yet, she's only been married to me and we both fully intend to make it forever.

I don't know if that helps any. In my case, it doesn't appear to matter. but statistics may show differently.

I'll ask my wife when she wakes up. She's a marriage and family therapist. She's got access to all the latest info.

Possibly, but I don't know that they'd be directly correlated.

Its declining because people are not getting married. It would sky rocket if gays and lesbians were allowed to marry as their relationships don't tend to long term.

I think more people are just killing their spouses now days vs divorcing.
