According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, Maricopa County made up more than 63 percent of 2008 Arizona divorces. That rate is high, but as most already know, the general divorce rate in the entire U.S. is high. The rate has gone down somewhat in this economy, and based on the new common dating and marriage practices, some sources think that today's young adults might impact the divorce rate even more.

Marrying later in life also allows individuals to better figure out who they are and what they want before committing to a life with someone.
