Divorce Rate Lowest in 4 Decades

The divorce rate in the United States is currently at its lowest point since 1970. The divorce rate peaked in 1981, and some believe that the economy is behind these changes.

Currently, with the economy's poor performance, many couples are finding divorce too expensive an option. However, this situation resembles that of the Great Depression, when the divorce rate dropped and domestic violence sharply increased. While divorce may seem difficult from an economic standpoint, it can sometimes be necessary.
