Most of the historical data is hidden away in PDFs of these monthly reports, so I had the pleasure of scraping data from scans of dozens of CDC reports that were published 30 years before I was even born. To provide a more visual view of the data set, I charted the per capita marriage and divorce rates below, with a few annotations to denote major historical events. Similarly, after the conclusion of WWI and WWII , those same young men and women coming back from the war seemed eager to elope and start a new life after spending years experiencing the destructive nature of war. Interestingly, the only notable spike in divorce rates in the past years also followed the conclusion of WWII, likely due to many of the pre-WWII marriages coming to an abrupt end once the romance of wartime marriage wore off. It seems when Americans fall on hard times, marriage is one of the first things to take the back seat. One particularly confusing aspect of this data set was the fact that the post-war era in the s and s seemed to experience a significant drop in marriage rates, despite the fact that the s and s were known as a time of nearly-universal marriage in the U. To provide a clearer view of the s and s, I plotted the raw counts for marriages and divorces below.

The science that uses tree rings dated to their exact year of formation to analyze temporal and spatial patterns of processes in the physical and cultural sciences. The beginning of earlywood formation and the end of the latewood formation form one annual ring, which usually extends around the entire circumference of the tree. A tree-ring chronology therefore represents departures of growth for any one year compared to average growth. For example, an index of 0. Usually this process tries to remove the growth trends due to normal physiological aging processes and changes in the surrounding forest community. Principles of Dendrochronology Henri D.

I managed to make it to a couple of dates but most middle aged men are looking for women with crane legs and Rapunzel hair. I have been happy in my own skin and can make turn heads when I am out and about but when “online dating” people seem to chase a dream that doesn’t exist. Middle aged Men in general run on the wings of hopes that they can still pull a glamour model just because they are financially secure but nothing special about them. I am a plus sized woman and was always been honest about that. I even joined sites particularly for curvy people and guess what!? When they hear that most head for the hills. The bottom line, online dating is not for me.
