Falling Divorce Rate?

Could this be true that the divorce rate in America has fallen to its lowest rate since 1970? According to recent data the divorce rate is at its lowest in over 30 years. Many people are speculating as to why that is. Some people believe that its because less people are getting married and deciding to cohabitate rather than get married. Others think that because people are getting more educated and have two working parties in a marriage, there is less financial stress in a marriage, therefore less divorce. Still others are thinking that the increase in marriage counseling, books and other self-help sources are helping couples struggle through their problems and remain married. I really don't know which one of these theories are true and I really do not see a dip in business that would verify the low divorce rate. However, I am happy to see that there are less divorces and perhaps this is a trend that will continue in the future.
