    divorce Many of the people whom establish residency in Florida do so solely for the purpose of taking advantage of the state s liberal divorce laws This fact might account for the high frequency of divorce in Florida when compared to the national average In 1978 for example the ratio of dissolutions per 100 marriages in Florida was 69 3 whereas nationally the ratio was far less at only 50 3 Still the State Board of Health predicts a decrease in the difference between these two ratios as other states become more liberal in their own divorce policies When evaluating the number of marriage dissolutions in Florida using the numbers collected over the years the growing divorce trend becomes quite visible In 1960 for example 19 511 marriages were dissolved in Florida By contrast 37 202 marriages were dissolved in Florida a decade later in 1970 And in 1978 66 018 marriages were recorded as having been dissolved in the state of Florida Given the occurrence was rising more rapidly than the national average but that is not to say that the national divorce rate had not been rising as well In fact the national divorce ratio had been following an upwards trajectory since 1963 and according to the National Center for Health Statistics an estimated 1 130 000 divorces were granted in the US during 1978 This was 3 6 higher than the national divorce total for 1977 These statistics paint a clear picture as to the evolving social tendency towards divorce becoming a more frequent occurrence in 1970s America There are several logical inferences to make regarding these statistics the most obvious being that divorce had become a more acceptable practice in US society during this decade The significance of the rise of divorce in the United States
