How I feel about failed marriages will never be fixed is a personal believe and observation. Of course, nothing is 100%. But my believe is pretty high up there percentage wise.
This has nothing to do with being in the US, Europe or Asia. For one thing, it's freedom of choice and association. Actually, the divoice rate in the US, as a whole, had stablilzed
and actually been declining a bit also. However, we need to take into acocount marriage rates have declined significantly, meaning lesser divorce required?
I have been saying all the time, the key to a marriage staying together, is economics. This is one factor that kept lots of bad marriages together. The other reason is children.
When women achieved econimic independence, they no longer have to be forced to stay in a bad marriage. One less hurdle to getting out.
like law of gravity... wat goes up, must come down...
more ppl marry = more ppl divorce... think about it... there is still alot of people not married... how come got so many marry? must be those remarry lor, from where? divorce...
you give human a choice, they normally abuse it, you give them no choice, they lppl do it for the rest of their life...

divorce ought to be the last resort, and i don't disagree with the so called ''hurdles''
if the couple (let's not be discriminating and only talk about women) thinks that divorce is so troublesome for solving their disagreement, it just means that they are not determined enough to break. if they have so much determination, no amount of hurdles are going to stand in the way.
btw since you are so concerned about women being in the disadvantaged situation, you might want to try writing to AWARE http://www.aware.org.sg/ i think they have been very proactive in fighting for woman's rights and welfare, i'm sure they'll welcome your views
We should not interfer with people's personal choices.
And thanks for the link.
you're welcomed, i just find that you have so many disagreements with the workings of Singapore's society that i thought i should help you abit by showing you some of the more effective channels
By the way, it is healthy to disagree. It foster thoughts and ideas, and changes for the better. Actually, singing to the choir is absolutely useless.
well like i mentioned, if the couple wants a divorce that badly, no one's stopping them, those hurdles will not mean anything to them. if the woman thinks she's disadvantaged unreasonably by law, i'm sure AWARE will fight for her. can't say the same for the man though.
Very often, two strangers in an arranged marriage will grow to love one another. In fact, if you a reader of the Bible, God commands it; "Wives submit to your husbands.....husbands, love your wives." (Book of Ephesians). I.e. you don't have a choice, you are commanded to love your wife. Is love an act of will? Absolutely! Ask any parent of naughty kids and see how much willpower you sometimes need to summon to love them!
more ppl marry = more ppl divorce... more people re-marry.

Good for business, in a way...
Twice in a lifetime... he he he..
One has to also look at the causes for divorces... and in society today, infidelity is cited as one of the major reasons for unhappy marriages which eventually lead to divorce. Given the work culture where we spend more time in the office with co-workers than with our spouses and family, its not surprising that workplace affairs are so common.
infidelity has been around forever, its only recently with women's lib that women have been able to do something about it and not stay trapped in a marriage where the husband is constantly cheating.
abit ot but i'm surprised no one has made a thread about bullying
