It seems to me that if 50% of all marriages end in divorce, then some
of them are probably so-called "common law" marriages, in which
people who merely live together for 7 years are considered by the
neighbors to be the same as married. Well, if they didn't formally
marry, then how can they
informally become single again? Logically,
7 years of separation ought to do it...which makes you wonder
whether or not formal marriage is better, because formal divorce can
be lots faster.
||Ah, I have it --the couple should get formally married, and
THEN quickly get formally divorced. Heh!
||Vegas will soon be offering a 48 hour drive in marriage/pause/divorce for the price of a single Elvis wedding.
||I totally needed this. GF was trying to get divorced by someone who vanished, but then responded to the notice of divorce, then didn't show up, throwing the process into disarray.
