A source of many of America's problems

Divorce is devastating to everyone involved, but especially the children. Children from most divorces end up doing poorly in their own marriages, in their careers and in many other areas.

There are times when divorce may be the right thing. But too often years later the adults acknowledge that knowing what they know after the fact, they feel they should have stayed married.

Dr. Helen found some Interesting stats on divorce:

The divorce rate in America for first marriage is 41%
The divorce rate in America for second marriage is 60%
The divorce rate in America for third marriage is 73%

It is interesting that once a person gets divorced, they are much more likely to get divorced in subsequent marriages.
