UNHAPPY couples used to stick together for the sake of the kids. Now they can make the best of a bad marriage in the name of being environmentally friendly.
Scientists have quantified for the first time the extent to which divorce damages the environment. The researchers found that the combined use of electricity across the two new households created rose 53% while water use was up by 42%.
Across America â€“ one of 12 countries studied â€“ divorced households used 73 billion kilowatt-hours of electricity in 2005 that could have been saved if the families had not split up. That is equivalent to about a fifth of Britainâ€™s consumption....
Yes! But you must remember that worshipping mammon is an expensive business.
Whilst we are on the subject does this also mean that denominationalising the church is too expensive too? And why should children leave home, it would cut down expense if they stayed with Mum and Dad, (If they stay together). In fact if we all lived together in communes, instead of separately in houses, think how much we could save!!
