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