Not everything you hear about divorce is true

Vicki Larson, author of the book The New I Do: Reshaping Marriage for Skeptics, Realists and Rebels, believes that many things we hear about divorce are outdated notions or simply untrue, according to a Care2 article on March 15.

Larson stated that 15% of those who got married in the 2000’s have gotten divorced, 35% for those who married in the 1990’s, and 40% to 45% of those who got hitched in the 1960’s and the 1970’s have legally divorced, effectively debunking the belief that one in two marriages in the United States end in divorce. In fact, rates have been on the decline for decades.

And if a couple does divorce, Larson said the idea that children are harmed in the process is not necessarily true. As long as a couple is careful not to fight in front of the children and they create a safe, tension-free environment, children of divorcees will be perfectly fine.
