    I just listed one potential one in post #55.

    Many potential variables could explain it! How do you know that is the primary cause? There are many potential third variables!

    When it comes to intra-racial marriage, blacks have higher divorce rates than whites have higher divorce rates than Asians. Does this mean that ALL of the disparity is because blacks just inherently suck at marriage because of black culture? Of course not! Many other variables exist.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    For Jerry:

    Interracial marriage in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A 2008 study by Jenifer L. Bratter and Rosalind B. King conducted on behalf of the Education Resources Information Center examined whether crossing racial boundaries increased the risk of divorce.[9] Using the 2002 National Survey of Family Growth (Cycle VI), the likelihood of divorce for interracial couples to that of same-race couples was compared. Comparisons across marriage cohorts revealed that, overall, interracial couples have higher rates of divorce, particularly for those that married during the late 1980s.[9] The authors found that gender plays a significant role in interracial divorce dynamics: According to the adjusted models predicting divorce as of the 10th year of marriage, interracial marriages that are the most vulnerable involve White females and non-White males (with the exception of White females/Hispanic White males) relative to White/White couples.[9] White wife/Black husband marriages are twice as likely to divorce by the 10th year of marriage compared to White/White couples, while White wife/Asian husband marriages are 59% more likely to end in divorce compared to White/White unions.[9] Conversely, White men/non-White women couples show either very little or no differences in divorce rates.[9] Asian wife/White husband marriages show only 4% greater likelihood of divorce by the 10th year of marriage than White/White couples.[9] In the case of Black wife/White husband marriages, divorce by the 10th year of marriage is 44% less likely than among White/White unions.[9] Intermarriages that did not cross a racial barrier, which was the case for White/Hispanic White couples, showed statistically similar likelihoods of divorcing as White/White marriages.[9]
    Doesn't really state anything about causation though.

    the DIFFERENCE (the delta) in divorce rates would be attributable to the cultural differences between the interracial couples
    the balance would be attributable to the things common in causing all divorces

    All this talk about divorce rates makes it seem like you'd think they had a different marriage than two other people. People are getting divorces for the same reasons regardless of the races between the two. Cheating, arguing, fighting ect are going to cause problems between two people. Don't be so focused on race. If two people get divorced its not because one of them was black or white or asian or any other race it's because one of them is pissing off the other. Or they are both pissing each other off.

    Bubba, you're still indulging in the correlation = causation fallacy. Just because interracial couples divorce at a higher rate does not mean that those couples divorce at a higher rate ONLY BECAUSE they are interracial. While I'm sure some of the statistical difference can be attributable to cultural differences, you have not shown me that there is something inherent about interracial marriages that accounts for the whole of the disparity, rather than exogenous and third variables.

    How then do you account for the fact (stated above in post #65) that black wife/white husband marriages are 44% LESS likely than white/white married couples to divorce by the 10th year of marriage?

    Are you saying that certain marriages are predisposed to divorce due to race?

    you insist the differences say nothing about causation
    i believe it does
    that substantial variance in divorce rates where black/asian men married white women is quite likely attributable to the cultural differences of the couple. what else would explain it
    similarly, the positive difference in divorce rates with white husband black wife indicates that their racial difference is also responsible for their superior rates of sound marriages
    again, what else explains it
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it
