These numbers are most likely driven by millennials actually. They wait longer to get married and actually have better success staying married (18-27% less likely to get divorced than older generations). They are finding better partners and making sure they are financially secure before getting married meaning women are not as beholden to men being their sole source of income. Men can also focus on their own career without the pressure to start a family either.

That being said, the pandemic has delayed both weddings and divorces with both closures and financial worries. Women has also left the workforce in large numbers during the pandemic to stay home with children who couldn't be sent to actual school buildings. It's curious to see how these numbers play out in the next 10 years.
