Swedish scientists have discovered a gene that may explain why some women have a hard time committing, or staying committed, should they marry.
ukfamilylawyer's insight:

STUDY: Summer Break Drives Parents To Divorce

STUDY: Summer Break Drives Parents To Divorce | family law | Scoop.it
For U.K. parents, summer vacation does not signify a time to hang out with the kids while they are out of school; rather, it's a time of increased stress, according to a new survey by Stowe Family Law. The survey, which polled 2,008 U.K. adults (1,244 of which were parents), found that nearly a fifth of parents consider divorce or separation after their children return to school in the fall.

Looking For New Love Online is a Major Cause of Divorce - BUSTED | Dollars and Sex | Big Think

Looking For New Love Online is a Major Cause of Divorce - BUSTED  | Dollars and Sex | Big Think | family law | Scoop.it

Do a quick online search for the term “What causes divorce” and you will be greeted with a myriad of sites claiming to have the answer. A popular claim is that online dating and social networking sites are major contributors to infidelity and divorce. A new economics paper presents some very compelling evidence that it is simply not true. The ease at which married people can find new lovers online is not causing an increase in marital instability.

Far too simplistic to make the link between the Internet, social media etc and increase in divorce. A lot of research to be done yet.

Jon Z. Bennington's curator insight, October 24, 2013 4:24 PM

I actually differ from this article's view that marriage is not harmed by online interaction. Unfortunately, they have statistics to back them up, and all that I have is life experiences and a keen observation with no percentages and pie charts. I felt that to be fair that I should include an article that has a slight differerence of opinion. When you ask yourself what do you think, see if you go with your gut or the numbers.
