Why do people complain about the high divorce rate, but don’t complain about people who shouldn’t marry?
There will never be an effective, morally acceptable way to prevent the following kinds of people from marrying (and thus reducing the divorce rate):
- stupid people;
- people suffering from mental, emotional, and/or personality disorders and disabilities who can’t or won’t treat their conditions successfully;
- hopelessly romantic and/or naive people; and
But when people bemoan the high divorce rate, they aren’t referring to divorces that can’t be prevented, they are talking about the divorces that can and should be prevented, divorces that aren’t necessary or inevitable.
Far too many people who would and should benefit from saving their marriage (and who are more than capable of doing so) give up on it far too easily. They wind up regretting the divorce (as well they should). That’s a shame. That’s worth worrying and complaining about.
