Statistics About Divorce

Surprising Statistics About Divorce

You’ve heard all the statistics—more than half of all marriages end in divorce and you’re much more likely to divorce if you marry young than if you wait until your 30s. But researchers have found a number of interesting and surprising statistics about divorce. Here are a few:

  • You are more likely to get a divorce if you spent more than $20,000 on the wedding than if you spent less than $10,000. Researchers say those who spend exorbitant amounts on the wedding are more concerned about the event and less concerned about the relationship.
  • The US does not lead the world in divorce—We may be number one in a lot of things, but thankfully, divorce is not one of them. The tiny island country of Maldives, in Southeast Asia, has more than twice as many divorces per 1,000 people as the United States. In fact, America ranks third, just behind Belarus.
  • You are more likely to be divorced than hit by a car—There are nearly 2,500 divorces every day in the United States. In comparison, less than 200 pedestrians are hit by a car in an average 24 hour period.
  • It won’t likely work with the person with whom you had the affair—If you “fell in love” with someone else and filed for divorce, be prepared to be disappointed. Approximately three in four people who married the person with whom they were having an affair ended up divorcing that person, too.
