It seems divorce court could be renamed family court. That's because divorce statistics have hit 20-year lows, mainly because fewer people are getting married in the first place. Family court is the venue unmarried couples are using for ending their relationships and working out parenting issues such as custody and visitation.
A recent report called The State of Our Unions discusses the health of marriages in America. The joint study was conducted by the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia and New York's Center for Marriage and Families at the Institute for American Values.According to the report, the chance of divorce varies based on your personal and social circumstances, including financial circumstances. You can improve your odds of staying married by having a college degree, coming from an intact home and waiting to have kids until after you are legally married.
