Just found out I have believed a lie all my life.Submitted by wraiththirteen on Wed, 06/25/2014 - 16:56
All my life I have been told that fifty percent of marriages in america end in divorce. Turns out that is a lie and the actual rate is below 28%. I wonder how many people got a divorce because the media pushed the numbers trying to make it seem inevitable? Screw the elite they are playing a long game.
“There is no such thing as a 50 percent divorce rate. It’s never been close,” she said. “Right now … 72 percent of people are still married to their first spouse — that’s Census Bureau data.”
And of the 28 percent who are no longer married to their first spouse, Feldhahn said that a good chunk of those people were married when their husband or wife died and were never actually divorced. So, theoretically, the divorce rate must fall somewhere below the 28 percent mark.
