Inside America's Billion Dollar Divorce Industry

10209 ratings | 2155539 views
There are one million divorces in the United States every year—that's one every 36 seconds, nearly 2,400 per day, and 16,800 per week. It's hardly surprising, then, that the divorce industry is worth a whopping $50 billion annually—that's a hell of lot of heartbreak. In the latest episode of our series on the love industries, we delve into the growing industry offering people alternative ways to split. In the divorce capital of the world, New York City, we explore the industries making heartbreak bearable and learn that—whether it's divorce merchandise, "conscious uncoupling," or "reverse-wedding" planning—people's attitudes toward the sanctity of marriage are changing, while Americans in particular are adopting new-age rituals as a way to call time on their relationships.

Marriage was initially invented as a way to broker alliances between powerful families and/or countries. Women were initially objectified and utilized as assets of powerful families now, ironically, its women that are relentlessly motivated to pursue marriage..smh

due to the bad education system ppl see devorce as a trial and error thing. and 50/50 is only in first marriages second marriages hold a lot better. But since marriage is a church thing its an outdated concept anyway.

Feminism is cancer. A position of continuous victimhood, power, and privilege which has destroyed western society. Oh well.🤷‍♂️. Not the claimed evolution in this but instead a de-evolving.

They wont say nothing about this. But they all will attack muslims like a lunatic to point of mistakes in islam while this is so disgusting and totally immoral. But no one seems to eccepting it. Disgusting people. Human body not a piece of meat and love is not something that u will let go easily. Yall dont fall in love. Yall fall in lust and confused it with love. How yall gonna know love when sex is easy to get everywhere. What yall know about love? Love wont fade. Lust will .the moment u start to have lust for another person. Western are immoral people. Being virgin is called out dated oh gosh!!! Exactly like those people god has distroyed in bible..so disgusting. These mens will display his women dignity and these women will not be appriected once they turn homeless or handycap. Cuz yall way of seeing standart in women only based of their flesh!

that lawyer has the right idea. marriage is a plan to enslave all men by democrats and radical feminists and communists. If you're a man, never sell your nutsack out for a wedding ring.

This is the typical guy, looking for beauty not brains. I was a size 4 before and after our son, and over the years I've picked up a few home cooked meals [pounds. My husband and I have been married for 27 years, and he loves me the same and enjoy spending even more time with me as the years fly by. That's a real man with morals!!!

The catholic Psychiatrist is the one human being in this documentary whose brain works normal, Yes i am Muslim but his words ain't just Christian thing, they are humanly thing. This is what happens when technology gets the focus, more than human being. everyone is unappy and broken... Trying to do anything even insanity just to feel good. The lawyer is pure evil 😈 making Kardashians normal. God is full of mercy by watching us behaving like an animal, but at least animal are better because they are doing what they were being created to do unlike us humans.

It sorta reminds me of nightcrawler, the true villain isn’t the assholes who profit off of misery the villain is the fact there’s such a normalization of misery in the first place

It's not evolution. It's not advancement.The DNA says we pair up, but not necessarily only 2, I'm including polygamy. America is fast becoming morally corrupt. Faithfulness is nearly extinct. Mostly whores m & f. The children born in late 80s and up are fucked. No nuclear much less extended families. Multiple baby daddies. You don't need Jesus to be faithful. If I get married, it will literally be a private ceremony between me & him.

So this guy is the opposite of sapiosexual? He has attraction to dumbness! Which according to tumblr is a real sexuality but I forgot the name of it.
PrincessKLS (2 months ago)
I think some of the reasons we still have people believing in marriage because we still have people being bought up in conservative or anti-sexual households and teaching their children that they can't have sex until they are are married. I know for me, I think that was a big reason I used to dream of having an awesome wedding day and being married, even at the age of 12 :D
Joshua B (2 months ago)
I hate the "fact" that people always throw around that "50% of marriages end in divorce" because it is gives a false picture of the situation. Plus, divorce and marriage can both be good things; I don't understand why it's such a huge problem for people to grasp that sometimes, you can make a mistake and marry the wrong person.

It's so annoying how the Catholic church's view is seen as unfathomable. As a married Catholic, I guess I'm just lucky to truly understand the gravity of marriage, it is serious and no one should enter it without being fully accepting of your spouse, FYI there is so much more to marriage than the legal documents. It's called true faithful, whole and fruitful LOVE. yes you should educate yourself before you get married. Do your research on the true meaning of mariage in the Catholic church if you want to show it in some show. Especially when discussing divorce.
