First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes….divorce?
As a recent report by Bowling Green State University’s National Center for Marriage and Family Research (NCFMR) found, the number of divorced and separated women in the US is on the rise.
According to the report, 15 percent of women in the United States are separated or divorced today, as compared to less than one percent in 1920.
Reason being? Part of the rise is due to cultural changes, but according to a Pennsylvania State University study, the top 10 reasons for why women divorce are:
- Alcohol/Drug Abuse
- Grown Apart
- Personality Problems
- Lack of Communication
- Mental or Physical Abuse
- No Longer in Love
- Not Meeting Family Obligations
- Problems with Employment
Women also make up for two-thirds of the divorces filed in the U.S. today.
