Marriage Commitment – Is Marriage Commitment Getting Stronger?

January 5, 2010 by  
Filed under Marriage Commitment

A USA Today article posted on July 18, 2005 claims that there has been a significant decline in the divorce rate all over the United States. The U.S. divorce rate is currently at 17.7% per 1,000 married women. A very considerable decrease compared to the 1980 U.S. divorce rate, which is at 22.6%.

However, there has also been a significant decline in the U.S. marriage rate. From the 76.5% per 1,000 unmarried women in the year 1970, there has been a 50% drop to this day’s meager 39.9.

Does this imply that there is a growing concern among Americans that fewer couples prefer not to marry? Or are married couples trying to keep their marriages strong and fulfilling?

Why Do Married Couples Call It Quits?

The main causes of divorce in 2004 have been determined to be the following (in correct order, from highest rank).

– Extra-marital affairs
– Family strains
– Emotional and/or physical abuse
– Mid-life crisis
– Addictions like, but not limited to alcoholism, gambling
– Being a workaholic

But if you look closely, these situations could have been prevented had there been a viable and strong foundation for the relationship built on trust and fostered by good communication.
