The Truth about Divorce Statistics

There are plenty of figures, numbers and statistics about marriage and divorce, some of them even more conflicting than an arguing couple.

To know the truth, you only need to know these two statistics about divorce:

  1. The divorce rate would be 100% of marriages if people were not sometimes dying before they get to file their liberating petition for divorce.
  2. 100% of people who file for divorce regret that they haven’t done so much earlier.

    Ha, ha , ha, the cartoon on your german side is lightyears more funny than the english one.
    You HAVE to translate it and stick it to your english post.
    My only comment about the statistics is the usual “Never trust a statistic survey that you have not manipulated yourself”.
    cheers

    My first wife was a “housekeeper”. Did she clean people’s houses? No, she cleaned just my house…. She cleaned it so well, that after the divorce she kept the keys to the house. A housekeeper, the one who sues for 100% and she wins, if the judge is a feminist. This is why there is a competition among men to fly to Mars mission.
