New study discusses factors in decreasing divorce rate

New data from the National Center for Family and Marriage Research at Bowling Green State University in Ohio showed that divorce rates in the United States have dipped at a 35-year low.

Marriage experts said that this occurrence might have something to do with the fact that most Americans are choosing not to get married, either by staying single by choice or having long-standing relationships with their partners without ever saying marriage vows.

While Utah boasts the highest marriage rate in the country, its divorce rate is higher than in 40% of the other states in contrast to this.

Other factors may include the fact that the majority of the U.S. population is nearing the golden years, becoming less likely to make such a drastic life change. In the younger generations, gender roles have been changing and same-sex relationships sometimes contribute to lower levels of marriage in the states.

Choosing to end a marriage can be a complex and emotionally-sensitive personal matter.
