U.S. divorce rate since the 70's- AP

Good news...
The National U.S. per capita divorce rate has declined since 1981, making it now the lowest level since 1970...

Many researchers however aren't sure whether or not to be optimistic or cynical about the study...they say factors like people living together before marriage [and subsequently not getting married] and income levels [affluent, college educated couples could contribute to the falling rates, however less-affluent couples aren't] should be examined before determining the marriages have actually stabilized.

"People are coexisting more peacefully, whether they stay together or come apart," Rosen said. "They are more contemplative and serious about their relationships, and I see people stay together who once would have allowed the marriage to unravel."
