Or maybe this site tells the real story which is usually unknown in our daily relationships. The couple down the street that split after the wife turned up pregnant don't publicize that the pregnancy resulted after a 6 month spree banging her best friend behind the husband's back.Marriage statistics are like opinions. Everyone has one none of them match up perfectly. El has a great article how the common stats cited are wrong.
I do think the rate of divorce and the rate of reconciliation are misrepresented on this site just because most of the people here are divorced and didn't reconcile so they assume that is the way it is all the time. I know plenty of people who aren't divorced and plenty who are.
