Divorce Rate Falling -- Another Nail In The Coffin Of H P I

Fewer couples getting divorced
Reuters Thursday August 31, 12:30 PM
LONDON (Reuters) - The number of married couples splitting up last year fell significantly with the divorce rate dropping by 7 percent, the Office for National Statistics (ONS) said on Thursday.
Its figures show there were 155,052 divorces across the UK in 2005, down from 167,138 the previous year, and the
lowest number since 2000.

Now the EAs only have "higher employment" left as an underpin for the soaring market. :)

Apart from the HPC side benefit, this is VERY good news. :D

Isn't that because less and less are getting married?Well it makes economic sense not to marry,if this government is anything to go by.

I would suggest that perhaps they just can't afford to get divorced???

They look at what they could lose in terms of housing - nice detached home, and see the scummy hole the proceeds would get them and decide they're better off staying put with their partner.

I am single, but seriously it is getting to the point where I need to find someone to live with, not for any kind of romantic notion of love or anything, but merely out of economic necessity in that it gets me out of living in a scumhole for the rest of my life. I actually love my independance, but honestly the days of the independant bloke with his 'batchelor pad' and child free disposable income, appear to be numbered as far as I can see.

I think in previous centuries marriage was an economic arrangement. Perhaps this is what is happening again. After all we seem to be reverting to a victorian style society in other areas.
