Divorce Rate Rising in Soldiers

The War in Iraq is taking a toll on the romantic rituals between military couples. Many soldiers and marines headed down the altar before the war began and now some couples are headed for divorce. The overall Army divorce rate has doubled from 2001 to 2004. However, the divorce rate among Marines is more stable. Repeated deployments is one of the main reasons military couples are divorcing.
