  1. “If your family or religious culture urges you not to have sex before you get married,” she said, “then one answer is to get married, and then you’re more likely to divorce.”
    That’s a darn good point.

    I wonder how much of it has to do with the stronger (at least I think it’s stronger) stigma of divorce in the NorthEast…

  2. You think that the North East has a stronger stigma on divorce? I would say it would be less. Here, divorce is accepted as something that happens. In the red states, divorce is seen as a bad thing. Now, it might be more stigmatized here than in California (CA can be really liberal), but I would say that the blue states and the more socially progressive areas would have less stigma on divorce.
