While checking my news feeds today I came across this little gem on CTV News:
There is a reason why we talk a lot about association and who you choose to hang around. This article just helps quantify why we hold so much value on our association. I’ve said before and many people before me that you are the product of the books you read and the people you associate with. The article basically goes into how friends and even siblings have an affect on your own marriage and the possibility of you having a divorce if they do.
Some interesting stats at the end of the article are:
“According to Statistics Canada, about 38 per cent of Canadian marriages end by their 30th anniversary.
In the United States, about 44 per cent of marriages end with divorce.
In both the U.S. and Canada, divorce rates peaked in the 1980s and have fallen since.”
Give it a read if you have some time.
