<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">In the United States, they found that divorced households spent 46 percent more per capita on electricity and 56 percent more on water than married households did.<br><br>
According to the study, if divorced households could have the same resource efficiency as their married counterparts, they would need 38 million fewer rooms, use 73 billion fewer kilowatt hours of electricity and 627 billion gallons of water in 2005 alone.<br><br>
Liu said he was inspired to do the study because of a global population phenomenon — a decrease in population growth but an increase in the number of households.<br><br>
"The number of people in the households is getting smaller," he said. "One of the main reasons for the smaller households is divorce."</td>

Communal living is good for the environment. Get a divorce then move to co-housing!<br><br>
I don't like this spin. You can live with people without being in an unhappy marriage.
