Couples therapist Christopher Cosgrove said that divorces have decreased within the last decade or so for a couple of reasons, including living together before getting married, TWC News reported.
According to Cosgrove, couples now tend to live together for years before ever deciding to get married. Therefore, the union may end in a break up rather than a divorce.
Despite a noted decrease in divorce due to cultural changes like this one, the media persists in encouraging the notion that divorce continues to experience an increase.
