In the same week that this story hit the stands, the world was once again delighted by the prospect of watching Prince William and his fiancé Kate walk down the aisle this spring. Meanwhile, several states are reporting unprecedented support for same-sex marriage; and divorce attorneys in Colorado Springs are seeing more requests for prenuptial agreements that ever. So what’s up with the people who responded to the Pew survey? Were they having a collective “bad day” or are they just pondering a future utopian world without the legality and consequences of a marriage contract?
Ever since this story broke, I and other divorce attorneys in Colorado Springs have been asked how we feel about the “death of marriage”, and if we’re worried how it will affect our practice, but looking at the current statistics I am not at all concerned. According to the article, Americans still have the highest rate of marriage – and remarriage in the Western world. Even though the divorce rate is still higher than most Western nations, Americans still have a propensity to marry one another and, unfortunately, get divorced.
