Half of all marriages ending in divorce is a statistic that has been around so long that people automatically consider it gospel. However, reality tells a different story.

In reality, marriage being a half-and-half proposition potentially ending in divorce would discourage the most eager bride or groom-to-be. The percent of marriages that end goes beyond what is considered a flawed statistic. In reality, the long-held percentage is meaningless.

Crunching the divorce numbers

The 2019 American Community Survey provides the most recent data, putting divorce rates at nearly 15 per 1,000 marriages. That represents the lowest number going back more than 50 years. Drilling down to year-by-year numbers presents significant complications.


Recognizing that your marriage is coming to an end can be difficult to come to terms with. Once you have done everything in your power to make it work, divorce may be the only viable option.

The divorce process is never easy, but there are ways to ease the strain. Taking preparatory steps can help negotiations over property division, child custody and spousal support run much more smoothly. Outlined below are some simple measures that could ease the stress of your divorce.

Get on top of your finances

Even a more amicable divorce could result in your finances taking a hit. However, being prepared for this could help to limit any negative consequences. Allocating some time to examine how much savings you have, what your debt situation looks like as well as checking your credit score will all be worthwhile. You will be required to present an overview of your financial situation to the court, and having everything to hand will make this much easier.


In many areas, such as in the workplace, discrimination against the LGBTQ community is illegal. All people are supposed to have the same options and get the same treatment, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

In practice, however, this does not happen all the time. Many people within this community still face a tremendous amount of discrimination. It can be disheartening for them to feel like they're not making progress or getting the types of freedoms that are guaranteed to them by law.

One thing to consider may be the presence of additional factors that can make this discrimination even worse. Some studies have reported that people with multiple factors may be discriminated against much more often.


Aun hoy, muchas personas creen que un divorcio traerá resultados negativos para los chicos. Sin embargo, las consecuencias de un divorcio podrán ser negativas o positivas dependiendo de cómo se enfrente la situación a futuro, y de cómo la situación era con anterioridad. Si la relación cuando ambos padres convivían suponía constantes enfrentamientos, una separación y co-crianza de los hijos puede ser una solución mucho más beneficial y sana.

La co-crianza (enlace en inglés), crianza compartida o crianza en conjunto, es la experiencia de criar niños cuando los padres están separados o divorciados.

Estas son algunas tácticas (enlace en inglés) que podrán ayudarle a resolver conflictos de crianza con el otro progenitor:


When well-known people divorce, we sometimes hear about non-disclosure clauses being included in their divorce agreement to prevent either from speaking or writing publicly about the break-up. Some songwriters have become known for using their break-ups as creative fodder for their music.

While a person may prefer that their ex not use their divorce in their work, they (and their children) can also benefit from the money generated by it. Therefore, they may be willing to agree to forego a blanket confidentiality agreement for some control over the message.

Why divorcing couples can benefit from this

Relatively few people are married to someone with the ability to share their personal life with a worldwide audience. However, many people still have a reputation within their community or their profession that they want to protect. Others simply don't want their ex to share whatever they feel like about them on social media.
