MORE OLDER COUPLES DIVORCING


Between 2005 and 2015, there was a “significant shift” in the age profile of divorcees, with an increase in the number of older couples getting divorced, Singstat said.

Among men, the proportion of divorcees aged 45 years and above rose from 30 per cent in 2005 to 42.4 per cent last year. For women, the proportion rose from 20.1 per cent to 27.5 per cent.

The median age at divorce was 42.9 for men and 38.8 for women, up from 39.1 years and 35.4 years, respectively, in 2005.

Marriages also did not last as long, with the median marriage duration for divorces in 2015 at 10 years, slightly shorter than the 10.4 years in 2014.

Among civil divorces, the largest group was couples who were married for five to nine years (31.5 per cent). This was followed by those who were married for 20 years or longer, accounting for 21.3 per cent of all civil divorces.

For Muslim divorces, couples who were married for less than five years, and between five and nine years formed the largest groups in 2015, each accounting for 26.8 per cent. Next were the couples who were married for 20 years or longer at 18.3 per cent.

More than half (53.7 per cent) of plaintiffs in civil divorces cited “unreasonable behaviour” as the main reason for divorce, while 42.6 per cent cited “having lived apart or separated for three years or more”. In 61.6 per cent of the cases, the divorce was initiated by the woman.

Among Muslim divorces in 2015, “infidelity or extra-marital affair” was the top reason for divorcing, accounting for more than one in five divorces. The second-most common reason for divorce was “desertion” for male plaintiffs, and “financial problems” for female plaintiffs

usually MIL evil is because hubby don't cooperate.  if hubby on your side, MIL will also LLST .....

so ultimately hubby is still responsible and reason for divorce .... not evil MIL

if MIL quarrel with wife. Husband must side Wife. Coz wife can leave husband, mother won't leave son so easily.

of course hubby must side wife .... but wives are subject unto their husbands.

Genesis 2:23-24
Mathew 19: 5-6
Ephesians 5: 22- 33

these versus form the basis of the marriage vows at ROM ;)

that's why there is always a caveat when husbands always side with wife,  the wife is subject (obey) unto the husband ...... no carte blanche .....   ;)

i have seen a fair share of annulment of marriage among my friends/cousins within the last 1-2years.

one of my friend went ahead with marriage even though the r/s is not stable and they are quarreling pretty often till the day of their marriage. they ended their marriage in less than a year.

I think PIL does play a part but i believe more of it comes from how much effort the couple put together to maintain the marriage.

I think the problem is because couples spend more time in planning for the wedding and renovation for their HDB than going for a simple pre-marital counselling course.
