.. So this is just my theory and I want to get some feed back and see if others agree.
I'm sure everyone has noticed the statistics on divorce nowadays compared to lets say, our grandparents.
Many, many more people are getting divorced now than back then.
I've noticed this trend here on CM where women say how "wrong" it is to "stay together for the kids" So we have an alarming rate of divorcees.
Do you think this mind set of more and more couples thinking it's wrong to stay together for the kids could be a factor in the high divorce rate?
I personally think it IS a good idea to stay together for the kids (to a point, as long as the marriage isn't an abusive one, things like that), where as I have read many times women thinking that it is wrong.
Do you think our grandparents sucked it up and stayed together for our parents? Do you think couples now are too quick to give up on their marriages and not stick it out?
I think our grandparents did suck it up for the kids, but back then it wasnt as common for women to strike out on their own, get an education, a job and take care of the kids and the bills. We have more opportunities now than they did then. I disagree with you about staying for the kids though. My parents "stayed for the kids" and it was hell for all of us. Things got so much better when my dad left. I do think that people are too quick to give up though, and the ones that are sticking out for the kids arent necessarily working on their marriages. They are just tolerating each other for the sake of the children.
