How Many Marriages End in Divorce?
If you and your spouse are considering a divorce, you may be feeling very alone right now. But the truth is that divorce is incredibly common, and certainly nothing to feel ashamed of. According to World Population Review, approximately 50% of married couples within the United States end up getting divorced.
This rate increases with subsequent marriages—approximately 60% of second marriages lead to divorce, and approximately 73% of third marriages end in divorce. Divorce rates also vary depending on several other factors, including age at the time of the marriage (couples married after the age of 25 are less likely to divorce) and religious beliefs (couples with strong religious beliefs are less likely to get divorced).
What Are the Leading Causes of Divorce?
Spouses may choose to get a divorce for any number of reasons. Some of the most common causes of divorce include:
