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.
How's the situation where you guys are at?
