Pro-family leader laments marriage crisis in Spain

.- The president of the Institute for Family Policy, Eduardo Hertfelder, has expressed disappointment in the state of marriage in Spain.

The pro-family leader pointed out that so far in 2010, already more than 67,000 marriages have ended in separation and the number of marriages overall has declined.

“The data on marital breakdowns confirms that the there is a marriage crisis in Spain. It demonstrates the need for our leaders to do something to prevent marital breakdowns – or at least mitigate them,” he said on Nov. 11.

Hertfelder noted that during the first half of this year, 67,365 couples separated—3,000 more than during the same period in 2009.  In addition, 93.4 percent of separations ended in divorce.

“The seriousness of the situation” is that “despite the decline in the number of marriages ... the overall number of separations has not gone down, but up considerably.

“This proves the problem is getting worse,” Hertfelder said.
