Divorce Myths

Fighting divorce myths is absolutely necessary if marriages are going to function correctly or end as smoothly as possible. There are many common myths about divorce, and they need to identified and corrected.

One major myth is that people who marry a second time are less likely to get a divorce because they have learned from their first marriage. The reality is that second marriages are more likely to end in divorce than first marriages.

Many parents also fool themselves into thinking that divorces do not have serious, long-term effects on children. The truth is that divorces have very serious, long-lasting effects that may become worse as children age.

Studies have asserted that after a divorce the woman’s standard of living falls 73 % while the man’s rises 42%. In reality, the woman’s falls 27% and the man’s rises 10%.

There is also a notion floating around that children whose parents get divorced are less likely to get divorced when they get married. In fact, such children are more likely to get divorced because they use their parents as role models.

Lastly, it is a common misconception that a low-point in a marriage means a divorce is on the horizon. The truth is that marriages fluctuate, and couples who weather a low point can end up happy later.

Reconsider Divorce.

Correcting myths about divorce allows people to reconsider whether divorce is right for them. As the reality of divorce makes clear, its effects can be very serious.
