In Western countries about 50% of marriages end in divorce. Taking defacto and gay relationships into account, the actual breakup rate for couples is likely to be about 70%. (Pease, Barbara and Allan. Why Men Don’t Listen and Women Can’t Read Maps. p 3, 13. NY: Broadway Books, 1998.)

Divorce tends to run in some families. There may be some inherited physiologoical tendency that contributes to increased susceptibilty to restlessness and divorce. This could include overstimulated receptor sites, and/or a reduced production of oxytocin, vasopressin/testosterone. (Fisher, Helen, PhD. The First Sex. p 272. NY: Random House, 1999.)
