US Divorce rate falling

As recently seen in Australia, the divorce rate is falling, busting all the commentary of ever present increases.

It seems a similar trend is happening in the US, as this article in the New York Times makes clear:

The story of ever-increasing divorce is a powerful narrative. It is also wrong. In fact, the divorce rate has been falling continuously over the past quarter-century, and is now at its lowest level since 1970. While marriage rates are also declining, those marriages that do occur are increasingly more stable. For instance, marriages that began in the 1990s were more likely to celebrate a 10th anniversary than those that started in the 1980s, which, in turn, were also more likely to last than marriages that began back in the 1970s.
