Please try to answer this objectively and try to see the big picture meaning this is not referring to just husband and wife but men and women in general.Keep in mind women are the ones who give "consent in relations including affairs and one night stands.

WHAT?

For one thing, a ridiculous question. All divorces are as different as the couples seeking one. Mostly, a divorcing couple are each responsible in some way. Not one-sided as so many would like to think...

Now:
women consent??? WTF?
Another ridiculous and sexist idea...but if you want to go that route:

Based on your biased assumption that WOMEN consent (affairs).....
then please acknowledge that MEN INITIATE.

AND without the initiation, there IS no consent...of course.

BTW, male or female, it is the break in trust of the married partner that is usually the "cause" of an affair, NOT the "fault" of the third party

There are probably as many reasons for divorce as there are for getting married in the first place.

Either gender is no more responsible than the other.

Many, many, many more, I would say. Good insight.

More women file.

Yes, to the popcorn. I like statistics and pie charts, so here's what I think. Maybe the "uniqueness" of where I grew up flavors this, but, the fault I've seen is:

50% - women - the marriage was to get in under the 30 mark, to do what their college girlfriends were doing, thought they could learn to love the guy, cheater - attractive and wanted more mileage from that, married because he was a "good catch," nagged the guy for more and faster (and I'm not talking sex), had "communication" problems ... of the one-sided variety

25% - men - addicted to drinking, drugs, other, cheater - attractive and wanted more mileage from that, expected a mother and/or a housekeeper

25% - men and women - two people who brought out the worst in each other

Not scientific, but that's how I've seen happen. I've voiced this before. If you want to argue what I "perceive," that's not going to work.

I don't understand what you're saying. Not just husbands and wives, but men and women in general? In general where? We live in a multi-cultural, diverse society. "In general" is going to vary depending on who you talk to. And what's up with the consent thing?

Two of my friends have divorced. One set was both of their faults. They were violent tools to each other, so...

men and women 50%

The other divorced because he was diagnosed with bi-polar and after 5 years refused to work and started becoming violent.

Men 50%

Are you asking because you want to know which gender to avoid?
