Though many often feel otherwise, divorce is a common event in modern life. Many people claim that 50% of all marriages end in divorce. However, that statistic is not accurate. What is accurate is that the divorce rate reached its highest point in 1979 with 5.3 divorces per 1,000 people. It's fallen ever since then, with the 2017 divorce rate standing at 2.9 divorces per 1,000 people.
Some experts say that part of the reason for this trend may be due to a drop in divorces among Millennials. Though some try to explain that theory away, others insist that these lower rates will continue. They also point out that, when Millennials actually do get divorced, they handle the entire process much differently than older people.
