Dalrock and HUS have an ongoing dust up about the prevalence of frivolous divorce. I came across a site called Womans Divorce where I found the results from a survey of 1745 divorced women regarding the primary reason for their marriage breakup. The results are shown below and linked here.
|Total number of responses:||1745|
I make no claims about margins of error or confidence levels or Z scores or any statistical metrics. But look at those results. At the very least nearly 44% of the divorces were frivolous (Incompatibility + Grown Apart+ Money). If you include all of the “Other” category as frivolous the number is nearer to 66%, our magic two thirds number. Finally, only 36% are in categories we could say with some confidence were not frivolous.
To be fair, drilling into the “other” category may reveal some divorces that we would not consider frivolous. Bear in mind I am not using strict biblical grounds as the cut off for calling a divorce frivolous.
Women have written their divorce stories on the site. They appear at the bottom of the page with the chart on it. Most manosphere readers know how to read and understand these stories, the more cynical of us reached a point where we take nothing at face value regarding this subject. My take away was that the stories qualitatively support the conclusion the numbers reflect. The majority of female initiated divorces are filed frivolously.
