143. I think the OP is asking but nobody seems to have stats
at their finger tips. It would be interesting to see if there is a correlation in an uptick in divorce rates and Shrubby's enthronement.

My pet theory, based on limited anecdotal evidence, is that 9/11 started a lot of people down the road of divorce. The marriages I know of started to strain or split later, but the infidelities started sometime shortly after 9/11. People were seeking more happiness? Life is short so do what you want? Dunno.

People have brought up economics, but also for those in the middle class there is the strain of employers exploiting employees to work longer hours. They can get away with it right now.
