  • Nope. I think it has more to do with selfishness. When did divorce rates rise? When women started working and became more materialistic. Greed was pushed in women. Women wanted to become material girls. This promoted financial disputes in marriages (avarice). Then abortion culture was pushed to murder children (wrath/sloth). Then came social media which glorified narcissism and random attention seeking from a plethora of men. This promoted infidelity in young women (pride/vainglory/lust). Why would anyone want to marry or stay married to an evil person possessing numerous negative traits?

    • pride comes before the fall... 80% of women on the internet use social media. What is happening to birth rates? Their falling right? Yeah...

    • *They're

    • yeah so maybe not just porn but a combination of many many things

  • Not at all. Not even a little. Marriages fail because of money issues, career issues, or a decline in the feelings you have for the other person. As many couples improve their sex lives with ideas they get from porn as those it negatively effects. You could just as well use the rise of video games as a reason as it has about the same relevance.

    Are there people who become addicted to porn? Sure, but many more become addicted to alcohol and alcoholism as a problem in marriages dwarfs addiction to porn. Any addiction is bad and should be dealt with. And in fact, there is little to no evidence that the divorce rate has increased in the last few years. In fact, some evidence shows the opposite.

Most Helpful Girls

  • More modern values. People have no sense of loyalty or honour. Everyone in their lives is disposable or there to be exploited, even children and parents.

  • There has been no decline in successful marriages. The divorce rate has been at 50% since the 1970s and it has never really varied.

    • The golden age of porn was in 1969 - 1984 and has continued through to modern day as a mainstream thing ever since then. In 1960 the divorce rate was around 22 percent in 2022 the divorce rate was like 44 percent. Ever since porn has been mainstream divorce rates have been doubled.

    • numerous studies have shown women who watch porn are 3 times more likely to divorce then women who don't watch porn. Look it up if you don't believe the science.

  • No. I think the decline is due to changes in society that render women more independent from men. In the old days they had nowhere to go once they were broken in. Today is different.

  • Don't think its significant in impacting marriages, but could hinder from relationships happening in the first place.

  • The correlation is more with promiscuity/lack of self control

  • not really. most divorces are still filed by women

  • No, there have always been unsuccessful marriages. The only difference is that today more people have the ability to get out of them. That's a good thing.

  • Absolutely. Porn kills relationships and rots the brain.

  • Porn is mind poison that creates absurd expectations, so in that respect I can see how it would trash marriages.

  • there's a strong correlation in the rise of greenhouse emissions and house music in green spaces but you don't see me fretting over the playlist

  • Nope
