Divorce

I was speaking to my sister-in-law's Lebanese boyfriend last night. He told me that he could not think of one Lebanese family he knew that was divorced. Compare that with how many families you know of your ethnic origin that have ended in divorce. What's the deal you think?

yeah i think my parents are almost the only people in our extended family who are still married.

i wonder what rates are of depression/violence/social exclusion within those social groups where divorce is still anathema.

interestingly tho, i think i wasn't until i was in yr5 when i first heard of someone with a single mum! times are a-changing
