What is the reason for the increase in divorce rate since the 1950's?

VS.

Feminist Movement

Side Score: 16

The onset of the Liberal progressive movement is the main reason for higher divorce rates. Liberals hate the very word morals and therefore usher in the no fault ideology where anything goes in today's culture. Self love supersedes the good of the children. Liberals will make ludicrous statements like it is better for the kids if their parents divorce and there will be more harmonious living. LOL, ASK THE KIDS! They say they would rather their parents do not divorce. But as with all subjects, Liberals will deny reality and go their own selfish way.

"Liberals hate the very word morals and therefore usher in the no fault ideology where anything goes in today's culture. " What do you base that claim on? Is it not possible that they simply have morals that differ from yours?

"LOL, ASK THE KIDS! They say they would rather their parents do not divorce. But as with all subjects, Liberals will deny reality and go their own selfish way." I have personally talked to many children from divorced homes that said it was better for their parents to be divorced, because when they were together it was a very hostile environment. What do you have to say to them?

Liberals promote relativism. The first to be confused by this contradictory notion was a Greek named Sophist Protagoras, who required no less than Plato to unwind his confusion.

FW has a valid theory in proposing that a moral shift which weakens incentive to work through "incompatibility" issues within a marriage has potential to increase a divorce rate.

You provide no actual facts to support your statements, and for good reason. You have none.

You may have noticed a few other things have changed since the 1950s. The most significant in my mind is that we moved from the Industrial Age to the Information Age, but there are myriad others. Discounting everything but liberal progressivism as the cause for increased divorce rates is truly ludicrous.

Also, arguments by anecdote are suspect at best. What kids of divorced parents? What liberals hate the very work morals, or believe self lover supersedes the good of children? This sounds like nonsense.

How do explain the decline in divorce after 1980? Are you suggesting that we are becoming less liberal nowadays?

What you just did is how people use numbers to make themselves right. What has happened since 1980? People are living together without marriage so of course there would be fewer divorces. Living together is another result of Liberalism whereby the traditional moral values with marriage vs living together are being laughed at by Liberals.

The realization that after divorce all your annoying habits will have gone, or at least go unnoticed. Also, there's no law against divorce, but there is for murder.

Side: Sexual Revolution

Feminist Movement empowers women not to settle into a bad marriage and not feel obliged to work it out.

Or perhaps more people getting married who discover they should not have, coupled with a growing social acceptance of divorce.

Side: Sexual Revolution

Why would any guy put up with the bitches the feminist movement has made of them? Before a woman respected her man instead of spitting in his face and you would why the divorce rate has increased.

Side: Feminist Movement

Down-vote me, but just wait. Women will be having abortions and demand child support for the fetus at the way things are going.

So what period of time had, in your opinion, the best "gender politics" (for lack of a better term that I can think of)?

The feminist movement is one variable in the relatively recent increase in divorce rates, though if you take the time line much further back you will find similar increases and decreases.
