The Recession Will Save Traditional Marriage

The divorce rate was down 18% in the first half of the year in Miami-Dade, and that's inevitably being linked to the 20% drop in real estate prices during that same period. Theoretically, people are too poor to get divorced. Yes, divorce is a luxury.

So until the recession subsides (sometime in 2024) all of the one man, one woman Constitutionally protected and God approved couples will have to stay in their broken, loveless shells of marriages until they have enough for one of them to move out and pay for a divorce attorney.

No word yet if there's been a rise in domestic violence.
