Long Term Marriages ending in Divorce

According to the National News in Australia, there appears to be a trend of long term marriages in Australia ending in divorce. It appears that couples are no longer willing to stick out a broken marriage once the children have left the household.

An interesting anecdote from the article is that while long term marriages seem to be ending in divorce at higher rates, the overall divorce rate is lowering, while the marriage rate is going up. This is good news for society as a whole because marriage often acts as a stabilizing force for societies.
