Military couples in Florida and throughout the United States may be experiencing less stress than in the past. This is the theory of one RAND Corporation researcher to account for a drop in military divorces over the last several years. In 2015, it was at its lowest point in 10 years. However, at 3 percent, it was still higher than the 2.6 percent in 2001 prior to wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
When military service members in Florida go through a divorce, they face a few extra complications that divorcing civilians don't have to deal with. The military has its own laws that sometimes cause problems when they intersect with state laws. There is also a culture of old-fashioned family values in the military that sometimes results in divorces being kept hush-hush.
