People can divorce these days, instead of staying in a violent marriage. I suppose that's one good thing about modern society, but I do find it sad that divorce is seen as a commodity, especially when a couple has children. The meaning of true love also seems to have vanished and men and women view one another as disposable and people are extremely selfish.
I do however support anyone being able to walk away from a violent partner and this was the main flaw I would have put right in past times.
I don't. I think a >70% drop is so extreme I find it hard to believe, no offense, intended. Could you provide a source for those figures, please?
I'm aware that divorce laws have become easier and that domestic violence has been taken more seriously with harder laws and greater enforcement and that there is more help for victims of domestic violence with greater awareness but I still think that a change from 1348 to 385 is an awful lot.
