So I'm subscribed to VICE on youtube, and they just put out this very interesting 22 minute video on divorce in America, and I must say, many of you will be surprised to see how much goes on these days where divorce is concerned. You've got this new but developing trend of "divorce parties" (and with it, divorce party planners), divorce hotels, post divorce make-overs, and divorce lawyers living like 50 cent. It's crazy to me just how popular divorce is becoming in America, but this video shows you a bit of what's going on behind the scenes that you may not be aware of. Anyhow, watch the video (or not... makes no difference to me), and share your thoughts on the rate of divorce in america and its development into what is now a billion dolalr industry. Cheers
P. S. I've added a poll to the question. Tell me if you have ever experienced a divorce first hand, and maybe describe in the comments what it was like for you
- Yes, I've directly experienced/been through a divorce
- No, I've never directly experienced/been through a divorce

I haven't been directly affected by divorce. It's a little sad to me how jaded people are becoming about marriage. Even if I go through a divorce the effort of the marriage will have been well worth it. I wouldn't regret the commitment I made. It's funny to me that people think that by taking the commitment of marriage out of the picture they think they can shield themselves from heartache. TThat's true naivety. I think that as the practice of marriage declines so our culture will follow. You can already see the results of this in many areas of the United States.
