Long-Lasting Marriages On The Rise Says Census

I’m glad the divorce rate is down and marriages are lasting longer. I hate to say it, but my guess is the decision to stay together is mostly based on economics.

According to a new report from the U.S. Census Bureau. The report says that fewer Americans are getting married, and more marriages are lasting longer.

“Many Americans have … heard this idea that one in two marriages will fail and that marriage is on the ropes,” said Bradford Wilcox, Director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia. “Marriage is actually becoming more stable in America and divorce is becoming less common.”

Seventy-seven percent of couples married since 1990 reached their 10-year anniversaries, according to census figures. That’s a slight increase from 74 percent in the 1980s, when divorce rates where at an all-time high.
