Okay... how many divorces have happened in Obion County this year? I've been looking at the paper and there are so many 'surprise' divorces... some I just can't hardly believe. I don't know the story behind many of them, but out of curiosity, wouldn't you want to know how what appeared to be Perfect Couples, suddenly hit the skids? Makes me nervous about my own marriage. They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. I'd like to prevent being one of those divorcees one of these days. How do we keep our marriages intact with everything the way it is these days? Marriage is harder now than ever before, at least for most couples. The very ones you think would never have problems are the ones who are having problems. My hubby and I have a few issues, but we get past them and settled, at least I hope they're settled.

So, my question is -- what the hell is causing all the separations and divorces these days? I thought divorce was on the down slide, but reading the paper and hearing the rumors, it doesn't seem so now.

It's people that is wanting to get away from the financial problems, and most are wanting to go their seperate ways. After so many years together, people just grow tired of the same thing, and they want out of the marriage to go and try new things, a new relationship, party more and possibly be around their friends a lot more. People are wanting to keep their own money now, and like I said, they are wanting to go wherever they can to explore new people, places, and things.

I don't think 'the devil' has anything to do with divorce... but divorce is a means and way out of a dreadful marriage.

Cheating is the main cause of divorce. If people would actually take marriage vows seriously, it would change things dramatically!

I believe that you are closer to the truth than the others. Its a shame that wedding vows dont mean much anymore. For better for worse, guess they should take that out huh. It is a sad thing.

Wish I had the answer for this question. I did go through one this year, and it hurt bad, the way that it happened. Now a days it is nothing for someone to just walk into a marriage and destroy it without taking a second thought, but it took two to do it. We had problems like most marriages, but I never thought it would end in divorce. Out of the blue, my spouse starting cheating like it was nothing, aftet almost ten years. Oh well, still hurts, but I am becoming a better person because of it.

Many of the Goodyear wives are divorcing to look for greener pastures now that they have milked the Goodyear machine for all it is worth. The money was good, the man worked 6 days a week giving plenty of time for affairs and who knows what else. Now the bum has empty pockets and is home all the time. A perfect reson for divorce

Don't know where you get the 'empty pockets' part in any of this. Oh, I'm sure there are people who would take off once the well runs dry, but in all honesty, not everyone is like that. It takes more than money woes to destroy a marriage. A lot more. Money is important, can't get by without it, but not everyone leaves because of money issues. I walked out of a marriage with my eyes wide-open, knowing I was going to have less money. I weighed the pros and cons on the money issue, but I left anyway... so that theory doesn't really hold water, but then again, not all of us think that Money = Happy Marriage.

Divorce is hard on the kids. If people are mature they should be able to work through the hard times. People run for many reasons. Cheating, financial, some even plan it for a while. Gold diggers, or selfish people. My kids will never be the same or have the same life all because of a selfish person. Try to work through it.

People are weak when it comes to marriages these days. One problem and they wanna run away. Either that or they marry too soon and regret it soon after.

Contrary to what a lot of people might think, it's just not that easy to walk out on a marriage. May seem that way, but believe me, it's not.

In my opinion those who say many reasons, you got it. Its not just the guy or the woman if its going to work it does because BOTH people "are"-"working at it".Same if it does not "work out." No 1 person is soully responsible for the institution of marriage-as is
said- makin it or breakin it..Many reasons, many people involved @ times but the best place to start is in the mirror and be honest w/ yourself about what YOU- "DID WRONG" so that GOD WILLING, maybe YOU CAN CHANGE, its the best place to start. Other than W/God doing his work it takes work. forgiving someone for their faults so you can look in the mirror & forgive yourself for your WRONGS might help.

If only one person tries to work on the relationship and is willing to make some compromises, but the other one isn't willing to give even one inch - it's impossible for a marriage to work in that mode, unless the one willing to compromise gives in on every level, in which case, that person is going to be so miserable, and it's just not worth saving that marriage.
