The United State’s divorce rate- approximately 50 percent- has become one of our country’s unique characteristics. Among our country’s hegemonic features, such as military and economic power, lies the highest-ranking divorce rate in the world, with about 5 people getting divorced out of every 1,000 people. Many people are not proud of this fact and many couple therapists and political figures are trying to prevent divorces. There are so many articles criticizing divorce, so we all know about the downside of it. However, what if high divorce rates aren’t such a bad thing?
Dr. Peggy Drexler, who is the author of Our Fathers, Ourselves: Daughters, Fathers, and the Changing American Family and co-author of Raising Boys Without Men: How Maverick Moms Are Creating the Next Generation of Exceptional Men, proposes a refreshing view on divorce; a positive one. Drexler argues against the mainly believed idea that high divorce rates may represent the Evolution of Women. Drexler believes it is because more and more women are becoming courageous about demanding a happier life. We all have the right to pursue our happiness, so if getting a divorce seems the only way you can be happy, don’t feel guilty for getting one.
