LAS VEGAS, Feb. 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The 1960's hit song "These Boots Are Made For Walking" definitely rings true for today's woman. A published study in the American Law and Economics Review revealed that more than 68 percent of are filed by the woman. This percent has almost doubled over the last two decades. Right Lawyers, divorce lawyers from Las Vegas, NV, and attorneys for more than 1,000 divorces offer these theories to explain the surge.
Theory 1: Today's Women have the Bucks. They are more educated and have more professional opportunities to hold good jobs than in the past. With job opportunities come financial security. With security women are more willing to say good-bye to a non-fulfilling relationship.
Theory 2: Women Have Higher Expectations. Women's social perceptions of marriage have evolved over the decades. Today's women have higher expectations of marriage. When these expectations are not met, they are not gun shy on filing for divorce.
Theory 3: Increase in Social Acceptance of Divorce. Societal acceptance of divorce may be a factor in women feeling it's easier to file for divorce than to try and fix a broken marriage. Being a divorced woman today no longer has the social taboo it once had. Women are less likely to stay in a bad marriage just for good appearances.
Theory 4: Women are the Shoppers. With women filing more than men it doesn't mean the amount of divorces has increased, simply that more women are getting the process started. 94 percent of women make the decision in the purchases of home furnishings, 92% of vacations, and 60% of automobiles. Divorce is simply another product where women start the research and control the purchasing decision.
