With all due respect-- the factors you have listed has nothing to do with the high number of Somali Wedding/Divorces. Perhaps # 1 explains your hobby but the rest are just little here & there tidbits that was not necessarily a factor.When you all want a Sociological answer --u go to Basra. I make a lot of private studies that come up with very interesting conclusions.
My take in this fashion trend is simple : Mali Wedding Happens because--Horny Virgins---Go running & singing Madonna's song-- "Like a Virgin--touched for the very first time"! All the brides wants is that technically 'First' touch!
But more realitistically the bride --is ready to manufacture a baby.After all the bride--is doing what her culture instucts her to do--- get married--must have kids & kick the husband out. The groom --simply Weds since there is no other way to get a classy Somali Cleopatra to bed other than this expensive Matrimonial papers route. (If he wanted anything else--alot of dhilos are available or fat white chics for free)
Also more poignantly is the fact that Somalis are generally immature people.So two silly love birds come together---puts on an expensive white dress, a cheap suit & they get ON with it. After Honeymoon comes-its all Macaan & Gacaal. Sadly then arrives the ievitable Sourmood--I mean-REALITY-hits the poor inexperiences newly weds-- so they freak out at first--scream Abaha Waas & Hooyo---u know what at each other second & finally & certainly deliciously --- Ping Poong--they Divorce!
(And certainly give us--a thing to Gossip about. Aaah ---such thrills i tell you i get from hearing divorces looool)
--Later a Whole NEW phenomenon is been born here in the West! Once the bride becomes divorced, single motherhood unveils. Immediately the phenom is followed by Having sex with horny dow- low farahs thus becoming a Western norm.They both do their dirty business in the down low that--- every party becomes blissfully happy.I know--
--Disgusting & certainly---these now turned Dhiloyiins --make this single & available Farahs--- NEVER actually available.Therefore lets not be severely shocked if Sir Luggooyo never trully has a reason why he is single in his age.
And..certainly....Therefore--for the females--i am guessing they first need the 'Married Woman Status' , acompanied with some sort of culturely freedom, then the kids-- & of course --later Metamorphosizing into delicate little Geisha Caraweelos in the down low. Not all of them--to be fair--not all turn out to be this disgrace i should for the sake of Niceness disclose--
-I am sure there are many who are unlucky with men & honestly, actively are looking for a good Halaal second marriage.But let us be realistic-- Which Somali Man will actually marry a single mother with luggage of kids?? Unless the Single mother is Fantastically Beautiful--then at least--its her beauty that is her ticket to bliss.
However for the males-- they are the innocent ones-- the proverbial little abdi machines that can be turned on & off any time at the Whim of this Phenomenon!
In Conclusion--- Divorce & Marriage -while the rest of the world has a 50%-50% range of divorces--Somalis have a range of 80%- 80 % Divorce--rate---that is of course --because of the lack of maturity-- the restriction of culture & influence of our religion.(No dating or sleeping with each other is allowed before marriage).
