Divorce Rates by Country

Divorce is the legal termination of a marriage. While marriage is, and has been, a universal aspect in cultures across world history, divorce is not always permitted under a country’s laws. What is more, some laws will limit divorces to those only with certain justifications, such as adultery or incompatibility.

Divorce rates are usually set by examining census data gathered by a country, and is usually expressed as a number of divorces per 1,000 citizens in a given year. So if a country has 1,000,000 people and executes 1,000 divorces, they would have a divorce rate of 1 per 1,000 citizens.

A country’s divorce rate will differ from the percentage of marriages that end in divorce. This means that while a large portion of marriages may end in divorce, even surpassing 50%, they may still have a low divorce rate if that is offset by a large population.
