We were talking about this with Accidental Stoner as late as yesterday. Apparently people have been breaking up left and right all last year. 13.gif And today I found stats to back it up.

End of special one-time dates sees dramatic decline in marriages

Statistics Finland reports that the end of special one-off dates like 12.12.12 appeared to put a damper on marriage fever for many couples in Finland. The data crunchers said that in 2013 marriages were at their lowest in a decade.

On the flip side of the coin 2013 saw an increase in divorces, compared to a declining trend in the previous two years. Last year 13,766 couples severed the knot, exactly 766 more than in 2012. The tendency to go separate ways grew most in the under-50 age group.

I doubt this has much to do with "special dates" but interesting trend none the less. And troubling. 13.gif

How's the situation where you guys are at?

I want to add that this trend is observable among cohabiting unmarried couples as well, but they're not represented in the statistic.

Been a wild 18 months or so in this town.

I want to take it as a sign that the so called Awakening
is gearing up a notch. Solidity in self now seems way more
important than karmic relationships - for some of us.

Within and throughout the past people actually needed each other to live and survive but more and more technology is desensitizing and dehumanizing us while destroying our empathy and compassion and love for each other as more and more people only have to push buttons and turn dials to get what they think they want and need...

My father in law asked if my wife and I fight very much, I said no not really. We had a couple of problems with finances that really pissed me off, but besides that our marriage is relatively boring. We both like boring really, and lack of drama.

I'm not sure what other people expect out of a partner sometimes, people need to relax and get over things. If something is bothering you just say something, and try to have some good intent from time to time.

I guess some people are just unrealistic or selfish and self centered.

I turned myself to consider wisdom and madness and folly
The wise man’s eyes are in his head,
But the fool walks in darkness.
Yet I myself perceived
That the same event happens to them all.

i know heaps of relationships that have broken up..

its not really selfish or self centred to stay with someone who is an asshole and treats you like crap, which no doubt would be the main reason people get divorced..

iagree.gif Things are never too boring for us, but lack of drama is a wonderful thing. That's the key to it all.

But the asshole who treats someone like garbage is self centered or selfish correct?

I agree, my wife and I joke that low expectations is the key for our marriage, but a lot of truth in that.

Honestly, if people have trouble letting stuff go, and can not see the building of a life as the primary focus then maybe they should stay single. Enjoy the highs, be there for each other for the lows.
