Divorce At the Peak of its Game Today up to fifty percent of all marriages will end up in divorce In 1900 roughly only ten percent of marriages ended up in such a way Why do so many marriages fail now There are many factors which create such high divorce rates Social acceptance longer life spans and religion help bring divorce rates to its peak First and foremost I would say that divorce was socially unacceptable in 1910 and many people stayed together regardless of whether they were miserable or not Also gender roles have changed since that time period and women feel more empowered than they ever have before They have an ability to support themselves properly without the aid of their husbands and back then it just was not feasible I firmly believe that the divorce rate is so high because most women believe that they have nothing to lose and everything to gain The children the house support alimony And they do have everything to gain Another factor is religion We have less of it in our society than we did before and many of the religions while they may not embrace the concept of divorce accept it as being a sometimes necessary action The slogan The family that prays together stays together is well known and there has been much undependable evidence that has led to unsubstantiated claims that the divorce rate for Christians who attended church regularly pray together or who meet other conditions is only 1 or 2 percent There has been a recent study by the Barna Research Group that puts much doubt into this thesis They had interviewed 3854 adults from the forty eight contiguous states and found divorce rates among conservative Christians were much higher than for other faith groups In this age people are living longer Society is moving at a faster pace and the stress level in the 21st century
