When there is a healthy economy, the likelihood of divorce cases is lower than when the economy is working poorly. This is evident in most poor black neighborhoods where the divorce rate is three times higher than those in the middle-class black neighborhoods. As a result, it is significant to note that greater economic stability is associated with increased family stability.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
