Efforts to decrease divorce statistics
The U.S. military has introduced some programs with the intention of providing assistance to military families to bear the hardships of life. For example, there are weekend retreats for military couples and support groups for spouses of deployed personnel. Such programs are made available through mental health and family support counseling networks.
