  •  A divorce in the U.S. occurs every 10-13 seconds
  • 75% of divorced people remarry within 5 years
  • Ends in divorce:
    • 50% of 1st marriages
    • 67% of 2nd marriages
    • 74% of 3rd marriages
  • Military wives 2x as likely to end their marriages as military husbands
  • Number 1 cause of divorce: financial stress
  • Massachusetts has the lowest divorce rate
  • Co-habitating couples are at a higher risk for divorce
  • Dancers are more likely to get divorced than waitpersons
  • If your sibling gets divorced, you are 22% more likely to get divorced
  • A divorce where parents continue to get along and have good relationships with the children is considered a “good divorce”
