Trace and Rhonda Atkins seek divorce

Country singer, Trace Adkins, and his wife, Rhonda, have recently announced plans to divorce.

On Tuesday, March 25 Rhonda filed for divorce in Williamson County, Tennessee, citing “irreconcilable differences.” The couple was married in 1997 and have three daughters. According to documents obtained by a media outlet, Rhonda is seeking primary residential custody, child support, and alimony from Adkins.

Adkins reportedly checked himself into a rehabilitation center in January for drug use after years of sobriety. The singer left rehab after learning of news that his father was dying. Adkins then checked himself back in to the center to conclude his treatment after his father passed away.

Rising divorce rate could indicate economic improvement

Jessamyn Schaller, an economics professor at the University of Arizona mentioned that a recent increase in the national divorce rate could be an indication of a stabilizing economy. Schaller conducted a study of the shifting U.S. divorce rates using data from the National Center for Health Statistics.

Schaller’s findings indicate that in times of economic prosperity, people are able to make decisions more freely, especially over their marital status. When people endure economic hardship, they either don’t have the financial means to divide assets, or have more pressing matters to contend with other than their relationships.

University study chronicles divorce statistics

According to research results released by Baylor University’s Council on Contemporary Families, couples who are non-religious have a lower recorded divorce rate.

The study, which examines shifts in United States marriages within the past 50 years, revealed that white conservative Protestants and black Protestants have sought divorces at higher rates than people who are not affiliated with a religious group. The study examined couples whose legal status was recognized by the 1964 Civil Rights Act.
