Some interesting statistics from the census which include the lengthening of marriages before getting a divorce. This figure used to hover around the 9-10 year mark as an average but as you can see below now is well over the 12 year mark. Comforting, I guess.

The one stat that continues to baffle me is the non resident parent’s lack of either opportunity or availability to spend time with the kids. 51% spending no time with the kids – well there’s just something terribly concerning about that considering that the Family Law Act suggests that it is in the best interests of the kids to have a relationship with both their parents …except of course where there is violence.
Anyhow check it out…
