Moral Contradictions

Just the facts, ma'am

I came across a page with divorce statistics broken down by state. While a little old, one can logically perceive similar results since 1994 and 1998.

The first thing I noticed was the first 16 states are all "red" states. The "South Atlantic" region and the two "South Central" regions comprised 358,949 of the 596,622 divorces, or 60.1%.

As a corollary, the state that is "gay marriage central" has the lowest divorce rate. The next 6 states are "blue states" while the bottom 16 are "red".

Just some observations... and a call that "saving marriage" should look at the forces against it from within, not from Massachusetts.
