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New I Do: Reshaping Marriage for Skeptics, Realists and Rebels, believes that many things we hear about divorce are outdated notions or simply untrue, according to a Care2 article on March 15.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

Costly weddings may lead to divorce

Couples who have spent in excess on their wedding ceremonies have a higher chance of getting a divorce according to a recent study, the New York Post reported on October 15.

In the research conducted by Emory University professors Andrew Francis and Hugo Mialon, it was found that costly weddings are linked to a far higher rate of divorce than average. Couples were a whopping 46% more likely to get a divorce if they spent $20,000 or more on their wedding celebrations. The research leaders suggested that this could be from a financial burden weighing on the beginning of the marriage. The percentage decreased dramatically for those who spent less on their weddings. The study surveyed 3,000 married couples of the opposite sex in the U.S.

Daughters associated with divorce due to strength of embryos – study

A new study revealed that female embryos are stronger and more likely to survive through a stressful pregnancy, the Mail Online reported on July 16.

According to Duke University scientists, female embryos are tougher in the womb, making it more likely that they will reach to full term, even if the mother is experiencing great stress. This may explain why marriages that involve female children are slightly more likely to end in divorce–the embryos persist even when a relationship is already experiencing problems.

The researchers further noted, although could not explain, that couples who experienced serious problems early on were more likely to produce female children later on.
