Kwerk, I don't know how the porn got linked to divorce. I could look at the chart and say it was color television. Or I could say our trade deficit started in 1960 and we could blame it on that. Studies on divorce cite finances as being a cause and I would bet that moving from single to two earner families has a much greater effect than any porn connection.
That period of time was extremely hard on the economy and on struggling marriages. My parents were always screaming the D word at one another though it never actually happened. My dad found work a thousand miles away and I usually only saw him for a week a year from the time I was 13 until I graduated from college.
Both parents often had to find work to make ends meet in the household. This is the starting generation of the "latch key" kids.
My guess it had more to do with the economy than pornography.
Pornography - a scapegoat for bad, ignorant, and destructive leadership since the rise of man.
I notice it starts to rise during Carter's term and stops its ascent under Reagan. It must have been Jimmy's lustful heart. -lol.
