Study: Low Income People Less Likely to Divorce
Wed 18-07-2012

A UCLA study published in the current issue of the Journal of Marriage and Family found that lower income people had more traditional views about marriage and divorce than people who are higher up on the pay scale.
The study found that poor people are less likely to think divorce is a viable option to fix an unhappy marriage. The findings also suggest that government spending to "promote the value of marriage among the poor" isn't worth the trouble.
Those with lower incomes, however, do tend to postpone marriage, often until after having children, the study says.
