A recent article posted on Southern Utah’s kcsg.com news site, describes the state of Utah and how it’s divorce rates are not following the national trend of declining. Across the country, most states are experiencing a dramatic drop in divorce filings. The assumption being that married couples decide to tough things out together rather than file for what can be costly divorces.
According to reports, divorce lawyers across the country saw an average 37 percent decline in 2008, but there has been no such decline in Utah. In 2006 to 2008 Utah saw about 13000 filings and 2009 is on track for the same outcome. The stats fly in the face of the assumption that having to “tighten your belts” and work hard as a couple to make ends meet can help strengthen a relationship.
Whether or not the statistics sighted in this article prove to be an anomaly or not remains to be seen, but one thing is certain, the failing economy is having a dramatic impact on all aspects of our lives. Marriages are not immune to the issues that economic troubles can cause. In fact, along with lack of communication and infidelity, financial factors are one of the most common reasons for marriages ending.
