    You seem to be assuming the divorce is the cause of the harm to a family, or to society, rather than a symptom of it.

    Marriages were always ****ed up. It's just that in 1900, people were forced to stay in abusive, broken relationships. Is that better?

    Logicman, absolutely 100% of what you believe is interpretation. Whether it's yours, or some other human beings, it's all interpretation.

    To say otherwise is truly delusional.

    Forced!!?? Continue denying the ill effects of divorce on our society, its comical. Interesting that the marriage Institute isn't harmed, but its always been ****ed up.

    Yes, people were forced to stay in abusive and broken relationships or they simply left without getting a divorce, which wouldn't be in your statistics. In order to get a divorce back then, you had to prove that the relationship was abusive (which was harder than people may believe, since it wasn't even considered rape to have sex with your wife if she didn't want to) or there was adultery (which might not even matter if you were a woman). Plus, there weren't many options for divorced women afterward, so they didn't have much choice even if they could prove these things.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.

    Bull. There was a literal crucifixion and a literal resurrection. And unless the stiff-necked crowd repents and receives Christ as their Lord and Savior for the remission of their sins, there is a high probability they will drop down into a literal Hell.

    Be forewarned.
