America’s divorce rate drops 5 percent
According to the United States Census Bureau, the overall divorce rate in the country has dropped by five percent since 1996.
Economic factors may contribute to this decline, because the financial recession may deter some couples from officially divorcing. Divorces can cost a large amount of money for both parties involved.
The state with the highest divorce rate is Maine, with 14 percent. Both New Jersey and New York have the lowest divorce rates in the country, each with 8.5 percent.
