Good News

So, I clicked on a link to an article on marriage this morning, and was pleasantly suprised to read the following about divorce rates: "At last count, America's divorce rate had fallen to 36%, it's lowest level since 1970. That's because, on the whole, most of us like being married, and so do our spouses." (Reference: New Rules for a Good Marriage at

I feel like our Sunday school class has generalized about how sinful the world has become over and over for the past month. I think things are much more complex and that it's very limited to only see the problems in our society. We need to be realistic about the problems around us, but I also think we should not lose sight of the fact that we also live in amazing times where people are doing incredible things.

We've also been talking about preparing to go to the temple and temple marriages in Young Women's the past month. This has been an incredible opportunity to reflect on how much I love being married and how blessed I am to be married to Tim.

We always hear that depressing 50% statistic, so I thought I'd share the good news that divorce rates have fallen and people do value marriage!
