Could the Facebook IPO boost both marriage and divorce rates?

Facebook has become so prevalent in American life that the site is mentioned in an estimated 20 percent of divorce cases filed in Maryland and across the country.

Maryland divorce rate declines; economy a cause?

Even when Maryland spouses mutually agree to go their separate ways and do so on relatively friendly terms, the divorce process can still be difficult as it may involve a number of complicated issues.
