Divorce Papers > Divorce Statistics > Oklahoma Divorce Statistics

The rate of divorces taking place all across the globe has seen a steep rise in the numbers and this trend seems to be more common in the industrially developed countries of the world than the others. This disturbing phenomenon of a divorce case has been cited by many as having its roots in a few of the modern factors of human lives. The first of this as revealed by the statistics is the fact that we human beings these days fail to devote quality time to our better halves and our families with the result that we distance ourselves from them, and before we get to know things get out of control and the only option viable then is a break up, or a divorce or a separation. The ill effects of this havoc of divorce is borne more by the child or the children than the two spouses involved, which renders a few of them incapable to make better adjustments later on in life. And as the statistics reveal it is precisely these children from the broken homes, who later on go on to get into troubled relationships themselves, which again results in a divorce. With our modern set of lives, where women are seen to walk hand in hand with men, they have been encouraged to adopt an independent frame of mind which has been misinterpreted by many a woman as something else. That is to say, most of the women believe that to be called independent is to be able to live in a manner wherein she does not need the help of a man for any of her task and this has led many to go for a divorce or a separation, thus leading to a greater rate of the same. The United States of America shows a greater statistics as regards to divorces than most other developed countries of the world. The state of Oklahoma in the United States of America is no exception to this havoc, as the Oklahoma Divorce Statistics clearly point out how the trend is only rising.
