What do you feel are the main causes of a rising divorce rate and falling marriage rates?
Divorce rates are higher then ever. Also the % of unmarried people is higher then ever. I live in the USA, so I don't know the environment of your country if you are not here. This is my opinion why: (please share yours) -Feminism. Women feel they do not need men. In the cave man days men were the hunters and protectors. In the modern day the need for protection is more of an attraction then a need emotion. Professional women can work and make their own paychecks. If a man feesl he is not needed by a woman he is less likely to pursue her. -Women have higher standards. Most women generally speaking would rather find a man that is >= to them because women want to look up to a man, she doesn't want to be his mommy. Since women are becoming more successful these days IMO they are having a harder time finding what they would consider a 'good man'. The more successful a woman is the harder time she has finding what she considers to be a suitable mate. -Men are now afraid to marry. Divorce courts favor women. A man can have his own house, car(s), and business; if there is not a prenup his ex will get half of all his holdings. Not only will she get half he will be paying her alimony and child support so now he will have less then half what he used to have for years to come. 70% of all divorces are initiated by women.

They used to have a very strong expectation to get married and have a family. Now, they don't need to do that. They can also leave when things get bad, instead of being... More

Women being more educated than the average man is the main issue. Women simply outgrow men and find they can do better. Men have fallen behind and in many cases can not adjust to a woman being the breadwinner and fail to support her. This will continue until men accept women's leadership.
