The national paper recently published a report citing census bureau data and found the divorced population in the City of Butler was 20 percent, which was double the divorced population statewide.
She pointed to the demographics of the city, and the fact that there are a lot of apartments and transient housing, which means you’re going to get people who are in transition.
In Butler County, there are a lot of marriages for people who are under the age of 25. You think you’re in love but you haven’t really tackled the things that tend to be the biggest stressors in a marriage like money, children and the impact of extended family. And then when you get to those, it’s a question of whether the marriage can survive it. About 40 to 50 percent of married couples in the United States divorce. The divorce rate among those who remarry is even higher.
