Too Easy to Divorce

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013

Almost six out of 10 people in Britain believe that there are not enough legal hurdles to deter couples from divorce, according to polling on attitudes to marriage and separation.

According to one source, of the 2,000 people polled, 57 per cent agreed or strongly agreed with the statement β€œit is too easy to divorce these days.” Women were slightly more inclined to agree with the statement than man – 59 percent versus 55 percent, and, significantly, most young people aged 18 to 24 also agreed. And while 58 percent of the sample that are currently married agreed with the statement, so too did 56 percent of those who are divorced themselves.

Two thirds of those polled thought that infidelity by one or other spouses is the main cause of relationship breakdown, ahead of money worries, children or housework.
