Divorce Law is not the Major Cause of the Increase in Divorce over the past 50 Years

Who says so?

A study by the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy (IMAPP) shows that the creation of no-fault divorce laws in a given state only results in a 10% increase in divorce rates over the next decade. However, forces such as increased selectivity by young singles and knowledge of the system eventually cause a correction in that increase after ten years pass.

MSNBC has a short piece on the study. It's quite interesting and shows that fault divorce - which has been around for ages and is primarily rooted in adultery and cheating spouses - is still the primary vehicle for the destruction of families today.
