Divorce Statistics: Why is the Divorce Rate Going Up Again?

Have you seen the news?  According to various news reports, with the economy (supposedly) picking up again, the divorce rate is also rising again, too.  As Augusta, Georgia divorce attorneys, we had noticed, in our own divorce law practice, that the number of divorces seems to track, or follow, the economy. 
In other words, if you are worried about your job, or your next paycheck, then your worthless spouse, "Sluggo," might not look quite as bad!  But when you feel more secure about your own job situation, then you might be more inclined to "dump the chump!"
What is your opinion?  Is there a correlation between the economy and the divorce rate?  Put another way, do you believe that people tend to stay married longer during periods of economic recession?  Or do hard times breed hard feelings and more divorces?
