Effect of Live the Life program on Florida Divorce Statistics

Florida has a high divorce rate compared to other states in the United States. The taxpayers are burdened with almost 2 billion USD per year due to these divorces. A program named "Live the Life" was started before the millennium with an intention of decreasing the divorce statistics in the state. Richard Albertson was the Founding President of this program.

The current divorce statistics are an evidence of the success of this program. In a span of 10 years, Leon County witnessed a drop of 29.6 percent in the divorce rate. In 2007, when the number of divorces in this county plummeted to less than a thousand, this was the first instance in about 20 years that such a data was recorded.

Reasons of the rising Georgia Divorce Statistics

When Georgia had recorded 2.5 divorces in a population of thousand in 2002, it became ranked as a state with one of the lowest divorce rates in the country. If all the states in the United States were arranged in descending order of divorce rates, then Georgia was ranked 47th out of 50. From 2004 to 2009, the number of divorces in this state decreased by 33 percent, but marriages decreased by 42 percent. Consequently, the overall divorce rate in Georgia increased.

The rising divorce rate in Georgia may be attributed to 3 factors:

  • Less income
  • Less education
  • Early marriage
