    I’m not sure it is apropos nothing, but I’m not certain it is a pro po anything either.

    A trend which appears to show that relationships are stickier than before could suggest all sorts of good things.

    Why is it we believe and report the negative with more gusto than the complex business of the growth of social capital?

    there’s always less divorce/more sticker relationships in times of economic downturn & uncertainity

    so i suppose labour can claim credit for this

    small whiskeys all round

    any more of these small whiskies and we’re going to be staggering around . . .

    but press on regardless

    The trend on divorce seems to be a long term one rather than a sharp downturn.

    to be fair i’m not sure what, if anything can be read into these long term figures

    sure overall divorces (absolute numbers) are going down as there are less people getting married so less people to get divorced, and while the divorce rate itself is coming down this obviously doesn’t capture the increasing amount of people who were in long term relationships but have split up (which must be rising as it’s the corollary of the inverse of the drop in marriages) the effects of which on those involved and any children would be just as marked as that of actual divorce

    might you i’d argue black was white on here

    mean to say mind you, not might you there

  7. ross says:

    and i meant to say meant there instead of mean!
