Divorce in western countries
Greenland President_Hunden What do you think is the reason behind the high amount of divorces in western countries? Are we not religious enough? As you can see the most religious countries have very low divorce rates (Turkey, Africa, Arabic countries, Poland). Is there a reason why religious 3rd world countries have less divorces?

because they cant accept that people grow apart and are usually in a male dominated society where women are treated like shit (syria for example)
2020-01-21 13:19
tell that to ireland where the divorce rate is the lowest in EU

Last time i checked a globe Syria was in Asia. What did i miss or its just American knowledge of geography.... Edit: It is Asia apparently...

Where does it say the chart is referring to European countries idiot The thread is asking why 3rd world countries such as Syria in the chart have low divorce rates and i gave the answer Stop trying to act smart retard
2020-01-21 14:18
Western countries are usually associated with Western/Norden Europe and US. Since US is not on the charts one could assume that the chart should be about Western/Norden Europe

Hes got an overall map, no region is specified. His question is a comparison between western countries and 3rd world countries. I gave a reason for 3rd world countries having lower divorce rates. If you don't get this then im going to quit replying to your dumbass
2020-01-21 15:02
you see the thing i dont understand about this argument is, if women really were treated like shit then why dont they fight back? now on paper it seems retarded but throughout history, women have always fought back. feminism movements have happened and a lot more throughout history. so why wouldnt they do it now?

because they get thrown out of their own family when they are the reason for a divorce
2020-01-21 13:20
Because women aren't dependant on their husbands anymore so if the marriage doesn't work out they can leave. Also religion, yes. Also you used to be shamed when your marriage failed which is not the case nowadays anymore
2020-01-21 13:21
Well it's a 50 - 50 % chance. Death or divorce. Western countries choose divorce, middle eastern choose death.

Easy to answer, people are not afraid of divorcing like they were in the past, they see it as natural now which I think It's the correct thing to do if the couple doesn't work at all, many people keep being married with someone while the relationship It's dead, that's the biggest mistake you can ever commit.

Direct correlation with sexual promiscuity (aka the higher number of premarital sexual partners equals higher % of chance for divorce, people with high body counts being unable to pairbond with their marital partners) Sexual revolution has impacted marriage more than any economical-social factor

this gives me the creeps man...i don't know where i stand with this honestly.
2020-01-22 19:23
why so
2020-01-22 20:48
Well im extremely sexually conservative, im a virgin that wont do a non-virgin girl but i never thought there'd be any relation between her bodycount and marriage successrate, not that i care about marriage but when the correlation is that big you don't have a lot of room to spare before you call it causation.
2020-01-22 21:00
Well now you know why religion policed the marriage and virginity trough the history, people think our ancestors were stupid, but they knew the human nature, when you give it too much freedom... We've came the full circle, people are totally out of controls and results like this are quite expected... Good luck finding the one nowadays... I was extreeeemeely lucky to marry the only girl I was with since the 15yo, because with the knowledge I have today, i'd be forever alone
2020-01-22 21:44
I dont quite agree with the whole anti-freedom part but within the sex realm it's not that i think you should be repressed, but rather disciplined. In any case, im glad it worked out well for you, hope you keep it up gl in the future.

Finland petemeister 
People get married out of passion rather than a mutual agreement to commit to each other and try to make the relationship work even during hard times. A lot of the passion goes away after a couple of years of being together, and after that you need to decide to commit or it's likely that the relationship won't last.
2020-01-21 14:50

Because when people aren't pressured to stay in unhappy marriages by a society that doesn't accept divorce, they get divorced. It's really not that complicated.

2020-01-22 02:17
Because people slowly but surely realize that marriage is and has always been a stupid idea. If two people ACTUALLY love eachother, they are already married in spirit, they should never feel the need to pay ridiculous amounts of money for a piece of paper to prove it.

1. Rich western countries are used to consumption society : take one thing you want, and throw it away when you are done. So we tend to do the same with our relationship. And so a lot of couple try a lot less to repair themselves, as we don't do it anymore with our stuff. 2. as you said, we are further away from religion we are also away from its archaic rules. Including that one partner for life symbolized by marriage. That rule was good enough when people were living shorter life, in more confined environment (such as small town/village) in order to avoid social conflict. But in our world, you have much more choice in partners available, and our society allow to not met your ex wife or her family every day as it could happened when that marriage rule was established. But I don't think this is the main reason, as nordic countries are way more atheistic than spain, and yet divorce less than Spain for exemple.

Too religious
2020-01-22 02:25
Divorce statistic is purely an indicator to the level of sexual perversion and spoil of the population, how problematic and selfish it is. Polaks and Irish are the least degenerate in Europe. They seem to be last to get backwards colonized and mongrelized by third world immigration if they fall for it at all, they seem to remain white. The best people. Americans, Anglos used to joke about these people, turned to joke themselves.

I think it's because religious people feel more of an obligation to actually stay together, you know following the "natural order of things" (whatever that means) Non-religious, or loosely aligned people have less of an obligation, and fewer stigmas/pre-conceived notions when it comes to divorces and breakups. Many religious people "just make it work", though in many 3rd world countries, the female doesn't even have a choice.
2020-01-22 03:24
the only ones I cant really explain are Spain, Portugal and Hungary, since im pretty sure both are fairly catholic
2020-01-22 03:26
because Western people think adult love = marriage. Marriage is a thing that must not hurry. Also having kids as well.

It's not just religion, but culture in general. In the eastern culture family values are much more important. West has abandoned this a long time ago and only care about money pretty much. I'm surpried Russia is at 51%.

2020-01-22 11:00
family values? what a bs. it's just a pressure of society that views divorcees as somehow defective and a divorce as something bad. and no one gives a damn that the couple and their children can suffer staying together only because that's what their relatives want.

Because marriage is meaningless without religion, its a piece of paper given to by the state so it doesn't matter if you get divorced whereas a religious marriage is a sacred bond between you and God so breaking that bond shouldn't happen.
2020-01-22 13:23

2020-01-22 14:54
Religion sees marriage as a sacred act, so it's not surprising that divorce is not seen as a good solution as much in countries which are more religious, and western countries tend to be less religious than eastern countries. It also depends on how easy it is for you to get a divorce in your country, if the procedure is too costly, whether it's in terms of money, time or effort (or even social stigma), then it's a deterrent to divorce as well.

Western women have a tendency to like Feminism. Feminism exists nowadays because "old problems" from the past are gone. Most of people have good jobs with good salary, ESPECIALLY IN WESTERN COUNTRIES. Women don't feel any fear so they can divorce easily. And they can do it easier in better developed countries (Western).
