Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The article The Myth of the High Rate of Divorce by marital affairs psychologist Kalman M. Heller, Ph.D., has some further interesting details. He emphasizes the role of the parents' economic situation (poor women divorce more), the mothers' education level (less for more educated women) and the age at marriage (the divorce rate is the higher the younger one marries, whether it's first or second marriage).

I never had a particularly high opinion of Dr. Heller's trade, but, the amount of web pages in Google searches in which his colleagues quote the 50-60-73% figures without checking a proper source and then offering explanations and possible remedies is sobering.
