In my country, the number of divorces has increased for the first time since 2008. According to notaries, the number of divorces has doubled since 2012. Notaries explain that the crisis has hindered people to get divorced. Now that the perspective for the global economy are getting positive, people don’t fear to lose their job and their income, so they don’t hesitate to divorce.
Why do we divorce so much?
As some of my friends say, the real rebels nowadays are those who stay married until death do them part.
Around me, I don’t know many couples who fall into this category.
Recently, I was attending an award. The man sitting next to me told me that one of the winners married his high school sweetheart and never left her. And he’s very old.
So, one of my friends told me I should get married now, as an act of rebellion. But to be honest, I don’t think I can expect a ring from the one I want to get married to, although he says he loves me to death.
The thin hope I have comes from a friend of mine, who struggled for years to get married. Her man left her for another woman. She dated many men, but always came back to him. Eventually, he realized she was the one for him. But it took him years to realize this.
Like I said in a previous post, there’s only one person we run to. And sometimes, it takes time to see the obvious signs.
We make a lot of mistakes when it comes to love. Hence, the high rate of divorces. But some of us learn from our mistakes. And do manage to find the right person for them, even if it takes them several attempts to do so.
