Modern marriage is misdirected

A few neat stats from a UK article on marital breakups:

Two in five reported increased levels of happiness following their split – though just 29 per cent of men said they were happier, compared with 49 per cent of women.

The survey’s revelations about British relationships included the finding that 17 per cent of marriages are entirely sexless, a potential trigger of infidelity, cited by two in five (38 per cent) people as key factor for divorce.

The other common reasons for splits were abuse (34 per cent) and boredom, cited by almost one in three (29 per cent) people.

And with 17 per cent of divorced men blaming financial problems for the end of their marriage, the credit crunch is putting extra pressure on relationships in trouble.
