Is Divorce Killing the Economy?

In 1968, a law was passed that changed the divorce rate.  The law called for no fault divorce.  Before that, there was accountability in marriages.  After 1968, people no longer felt it necessary to make the marriage work.


When you look closer, you see women are the initiators of over 70% of divorces.  A major reason is irreconcilable differences.  When people go through divorce, it distracts them from being a good parent and a productive worker.  This is costing the corporation because of reduced productivity from workers and the taxpayer because children can become a problem for the law.


While marriage has traditionally been great for children and the community, there no longer appears to be an incentive for men to marry.  Yet, women continue to have babies as single mothers.  Can the economy continue to subsidize unproductive workers and unemployed single mothers?
