04-12-2012, 10:04 PM'1 Of 2 Couples Will Divorce' Is Wrong
August 12, 1993
I HEARD it a few days ago on a talk show: ''One out of every two marriages is ending in divorce.'' I read the same statement in an article by a family therapist. You can hear it used over and over, as I have for too many years to remember.
Early on, I learned that it simply was not true. In fact, it is a lie on unsuspecting people. These critics are taking a statistical tool and turning the results into a factual situation. The tool is to compare each year the number of marriages to the number of divorces, thus arriving at a method to determine if the marriage/divorce situation is improving or worsening.
Empirically speaking...I put it about 1 in 10.Be Not Afraid.

That statistic really puts a bad light on society and doesn't bode well for the traditional family unit. I firmly believe that with the demise of the family will come the demise of civil society.

You do know that the coming thing is that only the "gay" folks will be married? All of the non-mutants will just be shacking up.It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.

And, the rest of the article gives the correct stats on divorce:
Recent polls have indicated that in any given year, only about 2 percent of existing marriages will end in divorce, and that only about one in eight of all marriages will end in divorce. This is a far different picture than ''one in every two marriages will end in divorce.''--Odysseus
