From the website "Californiality":

"The California divorce rate is now at a staggering 75 percent. Three out of four marriages in the Golden State end in divorce.


For many years, California has been known as the Divorce Capitol of the World, but today’s marriage dropout rate is shocking — even by California standards …


Divorces are skyrocketing in California among Christian, Jewish and Muslim couples. Senior citizens are divorcing after decades of marriage. Couples who have built successful businesses together are throwing in the towel.


A marital State of Emergency needs to be declared. Divorce is California’s most destructive epidemic."

isn't a divorce good for the economy? less people sharing a residence means higher demand for housing, not to mention the lawyer fees that will trickle through the economy!

It might be hard to find the real data on this, but I can't believe the number is anywhere near 75%. That just flies in the face of observation.

Also the statement that "California has been known as the Divorce Capital of the World" is almost certainly false. California does not collect statistics on the number of divorces any more, but 20 years ago, when it did, California was near the middle of the pack. States with highest divorce rates were traditionally Nevada, Arkansas and Wyoming.

Don't forget, allowing gays to marry will destroy the institution of marriage and the very foundation of our nation.

Moderator cut: Going to lock this because the source document reads like an advertisement for the person mentioned, plus it's flamebait -bhcompy
