How common or culturally accepted is divorce in Poland?

isn't church's morality a rather funny thing? cohabitating with your partner is deemed a bigger sin than sleeping around (when you are single).

but ad rem: in towns/cities almost half of marriages end in divorce. Quite a low figure, to be hones, considering how many people get married because of wpadka (and then poison each others' lifes, together with their child's)

Poland is changing rapidly, and as people become less terrified of bronze age deities and their priests

That is your story. Fact is majority of people never were so 'staunchly/religious Catholic as they were painted by the prejudiced outsiders as yourself with you coming from some societies that religion and God is only a matter of cultural past.

It doesn't change rapidly, Simply people are more open about their attitude or lack thereof.

Many of you seem to forget the social aspect of divorce. It's not only about the religion. In the past even non religious people would think a marriage is for life. Even if a spouse was abusive.

Being non religious in Poland is not a new thing anyway.

The social aspect of divorce is the second most positive one, after the family one - children suffer terribly in families where the marriage has died and the parents are miserable.

Being non religious in Poland is not a new thing anyway.

There's a very healthy tradition of this in Poland.

Though there's a difference between being non-religious and anti-religious.

I have been in close contact with young Polish people on an almost daily basis for the best part of twenty years, and I have seen the changes first hand. And before you accuse me of pushing atheism, I don't. I merely observe.

where the marriage has died

Then ya man up and rekindle it.
The number one reason for divorce is SELFISHNESS.

Thank you kaprys, and then there are the Satonics who promote anti-religion so they can recruit lost souls so they have someone to share their misery with.

Very true it can take allot of hard work and compromise on both sides of a marriage to meet the challenges of modern day life, in today's society marriage can easily be thrown away at the first sign of trouble, If someone has a faith behind them that helps them deal with problems and treat divorce as a solution of last resort then all to the good of the family unit.

ha ha....there is that word again, 'compromise' which goes along with selfishness.
That is what builds a strong marriage.....thru thick or thin........lose the selfishness.
The more strife you can get thru by sacrificing, compromising and not being selfish with a Christian Faith to encourage you the more likely divorce can be avoided.

Today divorce is actually encouraged by the courts, the feminist movement, divorce attorneys, non-religious and anti-religious marriage councilors of no faith, others who have been divorced to have someone to share their misery with and made acceptable in todays society of those with no Christian values.

The easy way out for <ME>.

@johnny reb
Sometimes there are no easy ways out. Call me whatever you like but if a spouse is abusive and has no intention of changing, divorce is a way out. And it's not selfish. Especially when children are involved.

Well of course there are circumstances that divorce is the only sane option.
The Bible even gives reasons that divorce is acceptable with one of them being adultery or an unfaithful spouse.
Even more so would be physical or mental abuse if the problem continues.
My point was that you must try all options first to save your marriage.
To many give up without putting any effort into it because they are either encouraged to or because it is the easy way out.

Honestly, we often don't know what happens behind the closed doors.
