With a military veteran population of over 575,000 in the state of Virginia, and repeated deployment to war zones, military marriages have suffered more divorces than the general population. In a January 2013 news article by Amy Bushatz, Military.com
reported that “the military divorce rate went down slightly in 2012, settling at 3.5 percent, according to Pentagon statistics,”
yet “researchers are hesitant to call the decrease a real trend until they see it continue for a longer period.”
