Disrespect for Marriage: In fact, the United States has one of the highest levels of both marriage and divorce of any Western nation,. The percentage of people who are projected to marry—close to 90 percent—is higher than elsewhere. Yet the United States has the highest divorce rate in the Western world, higher even than vanguard countries such as Sweden. At current rates, over half of all American marriages would end in divorce.
