Milardo Quoted in Down East Article on Maine’s High Divorce Rate

Robert Milardo, a professor of family relations at the University of Maine, was interviewed for the Down East magazine article “Splitsville, USA: When it comes to divorce in the United States, Maine is second only to Nevada. Why?” Milardo said he believes the rate reflects Maine’s aging population. “People who are older have more experience with divorce, and Maine has the oldest population in the U.S.,” he said. Milardo also said he expects the rate to decrease because people who are marrying today are experiencing less divorce.
