The thing that destroys what you're trying to insinuate here is the fact that divorced and separated women have an even higher incidence of sexual assault than never-married females over the age of 12. For the very young girls, it is certainly a matter of their vulnerability and proximity to evil men. And as other studies prove, those girls are most likely vulnerable because they are not living with their married biological parents.

For the divorced and separated women, the driving force is obviously lifestyle, and I'm sure the diligent use of a search engine can reveal the details of the lifestyle choices made by divorcees. Maybe I'll dig up the data myself one of these days.
You should have read your source more closely. Just in case you didn't see the telling post above yours, it begins:

Which changes absolutely nothing.

Besides, I thought spousal rape was never reported? You people on the anti-family side need to get your stories straight. I can help you set up the conference call.

Under-reported.

No, that's what you religious zealots do. The rest of us just work from the facts, hence the logical thread of reason that you chalk up to a conspiracy.

Your stats are flawed too.
Sexual assault can happen in marriages too,but they also are under reported.
There is a stigma to that,but its real. But many people dismiss it. Husbands sexually assualt their wives all the time. No means no,whether in a marriage or not. Just because she is your wife doesn't mean she has to have sex every day,or that she is your sex slave.
Sexual assault and plain old assault both happen in marriages, but neither are widly reported. I think if this were figured into these stats, they would reflect a much different picture.

How many women are living alone by choice since they are happy and have absolutely no plans to bring men back into their lives as the ones who were treated them like dirt?

I live in a northern, inland region of the state that makes Orange County look "progressive". Although we have our granola crunchers too.

I bet it's not as conservative as Saudia Arabia.

It's calling you man, sunny days, burkas, no alcohol, theocracy, you'd love it. Just pretend that Allah means Jesus.

Sorry, wrong theocracy, and the burquas would bore me silly. The teetotaling might also be a problem:

But Catholic men that live upon wine
Are deep in the water, and frank, and fine;
Wherever I travel I find it so,
Benedicamus Domino.


But congratulations on setting up a nice false dichotomy: burquas, or tramp-stamped pole dancers, nothing in between so pick your poison.

Reality is a little different.

Considering they are very flawed stats, given that women are not necessarily 'safe' in marriage either and other considerations left out, it is. Stats can be made to prove anything you want by how you prune them.
