The divorce rate in the United States is declining

California residents may not be aware of the recent statistics about divorce rates. While there is a widespread perception that 50 percent of couples end up divorcing, the number has actually been declining for years. The highest divorce rates occurred in the late 1970s and early 1980s but an estimated 70 percent of marriages beginning in the 1990s reached their 15th anniversary. The statistics for marriages that took place in the first decade of the 21st century are even more promising.
