99% of the divorced men never initiate the divorce. They'll do anything to make the relationship work, but their lover always want out for no reason.

That's the way I see things.

You don't see them correctly.

It's actually approximately 2/3rd of women who initiate a divorce. This is probably because of men's behaviour.

'the higher rate of women initiators is probably due to the fact that men are more likely to be "badly behaved." Husbands, for example, are more likely than wives to have problems with drinking, drug abuse, and infidelity.'

That bad behavior is often provoked.

I believe Djuna's statistics are little more accurate. Men do a lot of things wrong, and so do a lot of women.

It's not their "lover", it's their "spouse".

And it's not "always". Most people who initiate a divorce have a reason that is important to them. Is it always reasonable to me? No. But it's not my life. Men are also more prone to infidelity, but I certainly wouldn't view every man as someone who will fool around.

Have you ever considered dealing with people on a case by case basis? Or is that too much work?

Mostly for alimony, or her friends encouraged her to divorce just because.

Well, my ex has set a perfect example. I'm glad I ended the relationship before we got further.
