A recently published article in the LA Times delves into the relationship between divorce rates and our current economic climate. As many articles have detailed, divorce rates tend to decrease during hard financial times; the main reason being that spouses in trouble find it hard to afford a costly divorce. The article argues that that is only part of the equation.
The real reason for fewer divorces has to do with choices, according to the article, or in this case, lack of choices. When you view divorce in this light, it becomes easier to see that getting a divorce is a response to the availability of more choices in one’s life; choices on how and whom to live your life with. These choices, argues the author, are limited, as many things are, when money is tight.
Many authors and studies have attempted to draw comparisons to divorce rates and the nation’s economic climate. Most agree that in the current recession, many couples are attempting to stick it out and stay together. This isn’t the case for all couples, however. In many cases, marriages are far too fractured and broken to be fixed, and divorce is the only true healthy option, for both a husband and wife.
