Random Yet Interesting Demographic Data

From 2009 to 2005, the number of weddings in Mexico declined by 39 percent, while the number of divorces increased by 60 percent. The authors of the study also say that there has been a corresponding increase in the number of cohabitating couples, as well as, we can only presume, wealthy divorce lawyers being chased by extortionists.

Also, a report from May indicated that the number female drinkers in Mexico has tripled in the past 20 years, with the number of excessive drinkers going from 6.6 percent of the population to more than 20 percent. I wonder if the second stat has anything to do with the first.
