("Latest statistics (published December 2012) estimate that 42% of marriages in England and Wales end in divorce. It is also estimated that: 34% of marriages are expected to end in divorce by the 20th wedding anniversary.") Also, I read that 40-50% of marriages in the USA end in divorce. So, quite similar figures.
It sort of dissapoints me :/ I mean, I'm sure most people thought they knew what they were doing when they got married, but I think some people just need to think it through a bit more. Think about it, you're marrying someone. That's quite a big thing. Also the fact that if some wonderful person decides to put up with my shenanigans and marry me, there's a 30-50% sitting there...
Did you want a divorce, or you partner, or both?
Was it sudden or did you see it coming?
Are you still on good terms with your parnter?
Then again, I am only 16, and know little to nothing of how relationships work. Feel free to say I'm wrong, or provide a counter argument. I am aware that nothing applies to everyone :)
