In recent years, social media has become a major factor in nearly all aspects of American life, including divorce. Often, when people go through a big life change, one of the first things they want to do is to tell their friends and followers about it on social media. However, social media can be a very dangerous place for people going through a divorce.
It's common to hear that 50% of marriages in America end in divorce. This statistic is misleading at best, flat-out wrong at worst. The divorce rate skyrocketed in the 1960s and '70s, but it has been falling for decades.

However, there are still some cases where the parties cannot resolve their issues without going to court, and there are still some divorces that are contested.
