Having been dubiously informed that half the people in Athens are divorced, I came across the following exciting wikipedia entry, which although proclaiming to list the divorce marriage ratio, actually lists how much of a backwards shithole your country is.
Let’s take a look at some of the countries with a divorce rate of less than 10%: Libya, Bahamas, Tajikistan, Syria.
First off Libya – now ruled by militias, because the UK helped bomb the government into dust. Trash a government, and the AK-47 wielding unemployed youth get all uppity. Who knew?
Bahamas – high murder rate, awful cooking.
Tajikistan – any country ending with “stan” is terrible.
Syria – used to be quite nice until we supported the terrorists against the government and turned the place into another shithole. Again. Sorry about that. Please don’t stab me in the street. I didn’t personally do it, although I did pay taxes to help, so I guess I am to blame a little. Thinking about it, maybe this is UK economic policy. Ruin other countries, to make ours look good.
But I didn’t mean to slag off British foreign bombing policy, I meant to say this:
Men generally don’t need to bother with divorce, it costs us a fortune, lowers the chance of a decent breakfast, and we know after a good argument with the Mrs we will get brilliant make up sex. Nice. So only a woman who is truly sick and tired of her husbands bullshit will get divorced. But if your country isn’t really a fan of the whole “woman as humans” concept then chances are she won’t have a job, her signature is worth less than her husbands, and good luck having your own bank account with anything in it.
So nations where woman *can and do* get divorced, are obviously more civilised.
I did consider the aspect that superb childhood education will teach adults to live together in blissful, respectful harmony, and maybe Libya just has some incredible schools, but then I punched myself in the face for such a stupid thought.
Also, top divorce rate at 71% – Belgium.
