Divorce rates are falling(though breakups between non married couples are still up), MC Modern Ghana reports. And the reason given is that the husbands are taking more responsibilities in home life, making the rates of marriages more stable than they have been since the 70s. While there are still divorces and separations, it’s nice to see that more people are staying together, according to Sir Paul Coleridge, from the Marriage Foundation, happy for the good news.
- A Marriage Foundation study of UK couples found that the divorce rate among couples married less than three years has fallen to record lows.
- The Marriage Foundation’s research director speculated that fairer and more equitable marriages are more stable and less likely to end in divorce.
- The Marriage Foundation hailed these results as encouraging because they suggest fewer family breakups in the near term future.
“Couples divorcing after three years has halved while couples who have stayed for more than five years has gone down by more than 39 percent.”
