When feminism rose to prominence in the west divorce numbers soared, but that's probably just a kooky conspiracy theory :)

Wherever feminism rises, divorce rises in it's wake, along with single-parent (mother) households and crime.

It could absolutely be a coincidence. The original rise of feminism occurred right around the same time we started holding on to stone age ideology a little less tightly.

Edit: what I'm saying, Brigadiers, is that we stopped taking divorce seriously in about the same time we started taking equal rights for women seriously. Divorce was only ever taboo because of the religious consequences. When we began easing up on the application of biblical morality, a lot of things shifted. Marriage's importance in modern society has been eroding for decades, and who's to say that's necessarily a bad thing? To blame the drop in marriages on feminists is an oversimplified answer, and grossly ignores the multiple factors at play.

Correlation is not the same as causation.

You could just as readily blame the divorce rate on the adoption of technology and social media.

no it is NOT causation, but correlation can very much be Indicative of causation.
