Question by Laura A: Are there tangible statistics on the rate of divorce due to domestic violence within military marriages?
I'm looking for some actual statistics that show the rate of divorce within military marriages that's caused by domestic violence. I'm sure that any number that would be reported would be less than what it is in actuality, because most women don't report domestic violence anyway. But if anyone has a percentage of military divorces caused by domestic violence, I would greatly appreciate the help!
Thanks.

    The only stat I know of is that the
    Divorce Rate for first time enlistees
    is running toward 60% in all services.

    What you call Domestic Violence as a Civilian
    maybe just Pay Back…
    Coming off a 1 year Deployment and find
    your Wife 6 months pregnant…
    Being home for a couple of days
    and a whole bunch of Guys show
    up to Party with your Wife…

    My advise to any Guy coming back and
    she is pregnant or has had a baby is have
    a DNA test…and check her for any STD’s…

    Many a returnee has gotten them from his
    wife upon return…

    Also the other items I would tell my troops…
    Do Not ever give anyone a power of attorney..NEVER !!!
    Also never have a Joint Bank account…Never…
    The quickest way for her to run you into
    Bankruptcy and clean out all of your accounts.
    If you are Deployed you can’t put a stop to it from there.
