The latest divorce statistics show a fall in the divorce rate. This could be due to the rise in cohabiting couples. As there has in recent times also been a drop in the number of marriages, marriage as an institution may now be less representative of couples and families in today’s society.
Another reason may be that people are feeling less financially certain and it can often be the case that people will delay separating until they feel more financially secure.
