New York Divorce Statistics

Divorce Papers > Divorce Statistics > New York Divorce Statistics

People come together in the institution of a marriage in order to enjoy all their joys and sorrows with one another, and to have a hand to hold onto for comfort in times of despair, as well as have a shoulder to lean onto in times of sorrow. At that time, they make all the promises they can think of to their better halves to spend the rest of their lives together in the same house and under the same roof. Everything seems magical, and no one at that point of time hopes to call it quits and part ways. However, the hand of fate as well as all the modern distractions of life make it impossible to bear through all the hard times, and then the partners feel that the best possible option left before them is to live separately away from each other. This break up or formally termed as a divorce or a separation means the end of all these promises and vows that they had exchanged at the altar. A lot many factors are responsible for this, the biggest of which is the lack of quality time on the part of the people to devote for solving of all household issues, and before long it is found that the issues become so critical that the only way left to solve them is to call it quits and go for a break up or a divorce or a separation. A second reason why the rate of divorces is increasing by leaps and bounds with the passage of time is the independent frame of mind that the women of today embrace, which makes them believe and feel that it is not at all necessary for a man to be in their lives. They do not acknowledge the presence of their husbands in their lives, because they feel that they are financially well in a position to look after all their needs of their daily life, as well as look after the requirements of their children. All these reasons have led to a rise in the cases of divorce among the individuals, and along with development and modernity, the United States of America also seems to lead the race in this trend, and the state of New York is no exception to this rule, as has been proved by the New York Divorce Statistics.
