6 Heart-Breaking Facts about Divorce

Unfortunately, the divorce rate and statistics in the United States are shockingly high. The divorce rate is higher today than it has ever been. But why? Here we will look at some facts surrounding divorce as well as the top six reasons for divorce.

  • 82% of the time one spouse is unaware the other is unhappy.
  • Between the ages of 30 and 39, approximately 70% of individuals marry and approximately 29% of those same individuals also divorce in that age group
  • A divorce happens every thirty-six seconds
  • A typical divorce costs between $15,000 and $20,000.
