According to a recent article in the New York Times title, The Divorce Surge Is Over But The Myth Lives On, more married couples are staying together. According to the author, about 70% of all marriages that began in the 1990s reached their 15th anniversary without a divorce. If current trends continue, nearly 2/3 of marriages will never involve a divorce according to data from a University of Michigan economist.

Much of the trend also has to do with changing gender roles, including whom the feminist Revolution helped and whom it left behind. Sadly these marriage friends also eliminate the rising economic and social inequality caused by differences in education. The decline in divorce is concentrated among people with college degrees but for the less educated, divorce rates are closer to those of the peak divorce years.
