US Divorce Rates

US divorce rates are commonly reported at "50% of all marriages."

How often have you heard that half of all marriages end in divorce? While that statement is not entirely correct, there is some truth in it. However, that US divorce rate hides some relevant data regarding couples getting divorced.

The couples' age at time of marriage plays a major factor.
For instance, if the age at time of marriage is:

Under 20 years old, divorce rate is 27.6% for women and 11.7% for men
20 to 24 years old, divorce rate is 36.6% for women and 38.8% for men
25 to 29 years old, divorce rate is 16.4% for women and 22.3% for men
30 to 34 years old, divorce rate is 8.5% for women and 11.6% for men
35 to 39 years old, US divorce rates are 5.1% for women and 6.5% men

The Americans for Divorce Reform estimate that 40 or possibly even 50 percent of marriages will end in divorce if current trends continue.

Another interesting factor in regards to the divorce rates in the United States is the number of marriages for the person. According to Jennifer Baker of the Forest Institute of Professional Psychology in Springfield, Missouri; 50% percent of first marriages, 67% of second and 74% of third marriages end in divorce.

Another study by The Enrichment Journal looking at that same factor found that the US divorce rates for first marriage is 41%, for second marriage is 60%, and for third marriage is 73%.

According to The Discovery Channel, couples with children have a slightly lower rate of divorce than childless couples.

Some sociologists believe that childlessness is a cause of divorce; stating that the absence of children leads to loneliness and weariness. United States divorce rates suggest that approximatly two-thirds of all divorced couples are childless.
