Not surprised the country I live in is almost on the top... I know hardly anybody my age whose parents are not divorced or don't live together (So the number is higher, if you count in the non-divorced but not together living people)

Divorce rates in countries as of present time:

United Kingdom - 47%
so it seems your country is like the USA now (in the USA it's also close to 50%)


Figures of any kind anywhere in any field are almost always out of date by the time they are published.


Both the UK and the USA should be well past 50% by now. The real now.

...and even higher if you count people that aren't sleeping in the same bed


...and even higher if you count people that are completely uninspired.

Scarf, hope you don't mind me posting a few links here. Seems most divorces are initiated by women;

''Sixty-eight percent of divorces are now initiated by wives'', according to this 3 year old article

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/artic ... iness.html

''More Ugandan women move for divorce''
More women are initiating divorces in Uganda after becoming empowered by new marriage equality laws;


http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldne ... vorce.html

From The Anchorage;
Quote:
I saw an awful case of this bewilderment with a male colleague. He was shocked when he was looking through his desk drawer and found that his wife not only was filing for divorce but had also been consulting lawyers about a divorce for over seven years.

"I'm the provider," he said to me. "I've always done what I was expected to do. Why did she want a divorce?"

"When I talk to the husbands, they usually have a very different explanation as to why their wives feel the way they do," writes marriage counselor Willard Harley. "They often feel that the expectations of women in general, and their wives in particular, have grown completely out of reach.

"These men, who feel that they've made a gigantic effort to be caring and sensitive to their wives and get no credit whatsoever for their sizable contribution to the family.

"They feel under enormous pressure to improve their financial support, improve the way they raise their children and improve the way they treat their wives. Many men I see are emotionally exhausted and feel that for all their effort, they get nothing but criticism."
7 years...how am I so unsurprised. His life wasted on this women and her kids.

Some really good stuff there Rolan.

I think the 68% has risen to 73% in the most recent figures but who knows for sure....

Anyway.....!


The longest running divorce saga in the UK has ended in a £20,000,000 settlement for the woman in question.

Mr Young and Mrs Young fought a six-year legal battle where she was holding out for £300,000,000. The court was told the couple enjoyed a "luxury marriage" and heard claims that the couple spent £1m a year on restaurants and had "vast estates" as Mrs Young argued for a £25m house in London in addition to the £300,000,000. Mrs Young said she had been given a £1m wedding ring, that her husband would spent £5,000 a time at restaurants and once owned a boat worth millions.


Here they are signing the dotted line. This is what actually getting married looks like.

and here is where they lived:

Mrs Young felt that the money awarded to her was not enough as she felt her husband was 'worth billions' at least.

On the other side, Mr Young had offered to the court that he was bankrupt and was in debt for £28m.

Here is a personal experience I found:
Quote:
About a week ago, my uncle came to live w/ us after his wife (of 23 years) kicked him out of their newly built home. She then asked for a divorce. This is soon after he accused her seeing another man. She later admitted to it and said it was her HS sweetheart.

My uncle is in his mid 50s and was getting ready to retire in a few years. Him and his wife have 3 kids together. He's a self made man that owns a successful business and property which he does not want to lose. Just a few days ago, she asked him for the house and business which he built by himself, so basically leaving him in the gutter. I feel for him cause he seems so depressed now, wanting to make things right but unable to....

Here's the problem... my uncle still wants to go back and maybe make things right. He says things like "they can't live without me..." since he handles all the finance and takes care of everything for the family.

I don't think it will ever work out esp. at this point but somehow he still believes. What's the best option for him at this point?? And whats the best way to go about this @ this point in his life??

I found the Ugandan example especially compelling. People think of it as a Western epidemic as far as I can ascertain, but...people are people, women are women. All the same no matter what or where they are.


And unfortunatley for Mrs.Young(or whatever her name is now), it looks like she'll be downsizing somewhat :lol:

Scarf, what do you think about women keeping their surnames? My sister was recently married, and decided that she wanted to keep her last name(my father's surname), instead of taking her husband's one - could this be a sign of uncertainty/independance I wonder.... :geek:

I don't get it. Morals aside, how can she legally lay claim to the house he bought and the business he built after she had the affair and she asked for divorce proceeding's to begin.

Am I missing something, or are our courts really this fucked up :lol:

If you flip back a page or two, you'll see my marriage article which should explain it but I don't know how much depth I went in on this subject (or mentioned it at all).

This, in my view, goes back to the ownership days of marriage when women used to be property. This is why feminism was so successful, because at the heart of all their objectives, they had a legitimate claim that women were born free and independent.

As such, they have ingeniously engineered a route on both sides. If a man marries a woman, she is his property and is exploiting her.

If he doesn't marry her, he has no honour and of course the classic 'why hasn't he proposed yet?'.
