Divorce Rates In America

What are the current divorce rates in America? It is frequently reported that the divorce rate in America is 50%. This data is not accurately correct, however, it is reasonably close to an actual fact. The Americans for Divorce Reform estimates that probably, 40 or possibly even 50 percent of marriages will end in divorce if current trends continue.

Age at marriage for those who divorce in America According to DivorceRate.org

Age Women Men
Under 20 years old 27.6% 11.7%
20 to 24 years old 36.6% 38.8%
25 to 29 years old 16.4% 22.3%
30 to 34 years old 8.5% 11.6%
35 to 39 years old 5.1% 6.5%

The following statement about the divorce rates in America reveals all the details about distribution. According to enrichment journal on the divorce rates in America, the divorce rate in America for first marriage is 41%; the divorce rate in America for second marriage is 60%; the divorce rate in America for third marriage is 73%. According to discovery channel, couples with children have a slightly lower rate of divorce than childless couples. Sociologists believe that childlessness is also a common cause of divorce. The absence of children leads to loneliness and weariness and even in the United States; at least 66 per cent of all divorced couples are childless. According to some experts, however, divorce rates tend to go down primarily because more couples live together without marrying. Other researchers have documented what they call “the divorce divide,” contending that divorce rates are indeed falling substantively among college-educated couples but not among less-affluent, less-educated couples.

The divorce rate in America is more than 50%, which means one in two couples will break up. Why it is so high. What is the real reason for them to divorce? I think we should look for the answer from the American belief. Freedom is one of the most important beliefs for America and nothing can replace it besides love. When they married, they don’t run for long love. If they think the love and family can’t offer their happiness and safety, they would choose to divorce. They wouldn’t think more about the family or the children because they take themselves as the center. That means they love freedom not stability. Their dreams are running for their own blessedness.

As the divorce rates in America rises, bad effects do happen on the children who are use to growing up with both parents. When both parents raise a child, the child is learning different things from each parent. The child is also developing its own personality by getting traits from each parent. When divorce leads one parent to leave the household, it has a huge effect on the children. Both parents need to continue to play an important role in the child’s life. When a parent leaves the household, this can make the child withdraw and feel unwanted. It can affect their schoolwork, social skills, and their activities. They may act out in different ways, to show you they are not happy with this change in their life. It may also affect the child when the child becomes an adult. When the child becomes a parent, they may think it is not important for their child to have both parents involved in their life.

    This article is a load of crap. The reason, based on all the people I’ve known in my life, for the high divorce rate is that many people simply marry people who are wrong for them, out of pressure to get married by a certain age. This pressure comes from family and friends. And the reason for fewer divorces among couples with children is obvious: some are unhappy but stay together because they have kids. I’ve heard this over and over again. And divorce does not necessarily beget divorce. There are people whose parents stayed together, but they themselves got divorced. Also, having a baby does not make a couple happier, if they are not really happy in the first place. I know endless stories of people who settled just to be married and earn social brownie points, but who are miserable. Don’t get me wrong. There is such a thing as soulmates and true love and compatibility. But it’s not as common as the media makes it seem. And people feel that ever-present pressure from childhood to “find someone,” at least in our society, so more often than not, people will make unfortunate mistakes, and involve children in those mistakes. Some children of divorce do manage to get over it and have a life. It would also help not to be labeled by those around them. Negative reinforcement has a much more significant impact than anything else.

    marriage is something too many people rush into…. the first few months of a relationship are always easy. cause the couple is still in the (puppy dog love) stage. when that six month mark comes around the fights begin.
    relationships are deffinitly not easy. it takes ALOT of patience and hard work. once you get passed that puppy stage and you start seeing who your spouce truley is… then you realize eaither…”hey i love this person eith all ny heart. i love them for thier good qualities anf thier bad qualities” …. or “dam this person is really getting on my last nerve i dont know what i want anymore”

    im no expert but this is what i see
    my dad has been married three times and my mom has been married four times.
    sad part about it is they were never married to each other.

    All i can say is never give up on love… but dont spend your days searching for Mr. Right or Mrs. Right…. Good things come to people when thier not looking for it.

    This is a very biased close minded opinion. Because my husband beat me and it didn’t start till after I was in the marriage I should have stayed? I know that’s an extreme but seriously, people change. People cheat, people lie.
    Do you think children are so stupid they don’t know when their parents are unhappy? It only teaches a child disfunction and they will more then likely repeat the cycle then.
    The statistics of age are more interesting then the really ignorant text below. I will say yes too many rush into marriage. Young adults still have their own life to figure out instead of marriage. But if two people are really in love decide to get married, give it their all and it still doesn’t work later in the future, why condem them? What did they do wrong? They loved and experienced love. Maybe the true question here is why debate and analyze another person’s life. You weren’t in their shoes and know first hand what went on. You life your life, I’ll live mine. Maybe marriage in itself should be analyzed. We are creatures of God and how many other creatures actually mate for life? I am over joyed to my core when I see it, I hope someday for it to happen to me. But who am I to condem someone else thinks their in love?

    I,ve been married for 22 years on my first marriage,her second. She and I thought we would be together till death do us part. We are currently in the process of divorce.. We were the perfect couple when the kids were growing up,no fighting ever I couldn,t believe that I found my so called soul mate. All that changed after the kids graduated high school and left home.Then it was just her and I with no other distraction to preoccupy our time. The last 5 years have been fight after fight untill 2 months ago when we decided to seperate for a month well that ended up to 2 months and then divorce. When the fighting starts dont wait go talk to marriage counselor right away because you both are right and wrong at the same time.By all means work it out the grass isnt always greener on the other side.I took my wife for granted and thought she will never divorce me so I started thinking the grass is greener on the other side and because of that I lost my best friend.

    Yes! Clearly the institute of marriage is in trouble but don’t you think the media has something to do with it? Obviously they like to stretch the truth about everything else so why not stretch the truth on this as well? People go on the internet to find answers–the RIGHT answers and apparently all they are getting is a bunch of lies.
    I am a relationship counselor. No I am not a therapist–I do not have a masters in psychology. I am simply a life coach with a specialized certification in relationship counseling. NOW, marriage divorce rate will climb to 50% if we don’t start doing something about it.
    1) If you are living together, have a clear plan of attack: Are you living together with the intent of marriage or are you living together instead of getting married? Many couples make the mistake of not projecting their feelings and ideas clearly leaving miscommunication that will destroy their relationship later.
    2) COMMUNICATION is key. Now too much talking can be a bad thing too. Learn when is a good time to agree to disagree and when not to give up. So he wants to sleep with his socks off, you want him to sleep with them on: compromise. You don’t want to get married ever (possible ever again) and he is all ready to pop the question: Keep fighting for your relationship and yourself.
    3) Sometimes it is better to separate then it is to stay together. Now if no children are involved and you are not married, it is definiely less difficult but it you are married and/or have children, ask yourself why are you getting a divorce? Is it a selfless reason or is it a selfish reason?

    Best of luck to you all.

    If women knew that the father would get custody and she couldn’t leave the father and get all the benefits of marriage (through alimony and child support) the divorce rate would plummet.

  28. Schmoo

    This is BS. For a second I thought it was a real article! LOL Um, people with children stay married because it would be detrimental to the party who makes the most money to lose 1/2 of his/her assets and get taken to the CLEANERS paying alimony and child support–for children he/she may rarely see or get to raise.

    The reasons the divorce rates are so high is because people have valid reasons for divorce..and if they’re childless they may have fewer financial incentives to stay in an unhappy situation. Why not stay married for 50+ years to an abusive alcoholic like my grandmother?

    Luckily, because of the divorce laws, people no longer have to stay in physically abusive marriages, or marriages with people with drug problems, pornography addictions etc. Oh NO! Unhappily married couples who stayed together have produced damaged children for hundreds of years. Yay for divorce.

    the reason why people with children have more chances to stay married is because they learn to be real givers and not just takers. also, both people have an amazing goal in common, plus by having a child they are fulfilling a request from above ‘be fruitfull and multiply”. children bring blessing and are for sure a true glue for the couple. now, obviously it is not enough to have a child in order to stay together. we need to work on ourselves and learn from the experts on how to keep and make a marriage work. marriage and childrearing are the most important subjects and most of us are not going to university to learn about them.
    It is sad to know the rates about divorce. I think that people need to go into marriage with the clear fact that marriage takes work,time and effort. do not give up so easily because your husband/wife is not perfect. no not get divorce so quickly and think the next will be exactly what you wanted and just the way you want it. no,. there is no perfect spouse. if we work on ourselves and become better for sure we will just the good in our spouse and the rest we will take it as our share of challenge that will help us grow and become better. I feel I married my soulmate. I have been married for ten years and have five children. I assure you, marriage is like a plant. It needs, water,sun, air. It needs care. If it does not get the right care no matter how beautiful and healthy it looks now it will just die.
    i wish you all to have a happy and long life

    Personnally not being married myself i could not tell you that i have any experiance of a marriage, i do however have a point of view, i feel that marriages are failing and no not becuase of freedom reasons or more benefits for divorce, Marriages essentially are failing because of peoples opinions and values are changing. My self growing up in two families because of my parents divorce. I have often assesed each of them for the blame and came up with a conclusion. Peoples opinions are changing because of selfish reasons, take my mum for example, she wanted her freedom because she got sick of being in a relationship. She didn’t think about her partners feelings or her children. And after six years of marriage she divorced. After living in an unhappy family for more years than i can remeber and having no memories of a proper together family, I would say that when people do get married and take on responsibilities they should think of them first because personnally i would have prefered to live in a happy family and have my parents try to work things out instead of one of them being too selfish to consider the after affects. In all fairness people really should end marriages if they are trubled marriges that may indanger the person and their health but if someone were to just do it because their feelings have changed or they have become sick of their partners, i would say that the best things to do would be to consider everything that has been made in the marrige, whether it be children or a house or debt, and consider what will happen to them and how it will affect them before you think completly of yourself and what you want.

    I don’t think that people take marriage seriously anymore. It’s like when you’re in a relationship in high school. Something just not working out? Then get a divorce. You two fight? Then get a divorce. It’s like it became the first choice thing instead of trying to work it out, or trying to figure out why you fight and change it. It’s even worse when they two have kids because then what’ll happen? If the parents get a divorce, the child grows up either in two different households, or doesn’t see the other. My parents are divorced and I can’t even see my dad because my mom hates him. They had terrible problems they took out in front of my brother and I when we were younger and it hurt us as we got older because they got a divorce. They didn’t stay together or try to make things right for my brother and I, they just grew selfish and didn’t bother to fix anything.
    Sometimes it’s also because they think they’re all of a sudden in love with this man or woman, and just really wanna marry them yet don’t really know who they are, and once they find out they don’t like them after they’re married, they just get a divorce as if it were breaking up. It’s pathetic. I think the way society is ran takes a big role in our marriages. Divorce rates have been rising because of they way society has become. People idolize youth, basically saying we like to see mistakes and immaturity and use it as a role model. Many problems come because then there will be people who get married yet at such a young age, thinking they can make it, or there are people who have kids too young and get married, saying “it’s for our child (children)” yet can’t properly take care of themselves. I think it was better before because a good majority of people who have died or were looked up to were really good role models. They set way the hell better examples then the people who others now look up to now. I think it’s gross the way they stick themselves out there like it’s okay, and end up with nothing in the end. This plays a big part because if younger people think they can do things like get married to someone famous, or do what they want, yet not really know who they are or what they plan to do, then it’s just a divorce waiting to happen and their life is screwed.
    America suppresses the idea we need to have more control in what we do rather than trying to hide it behind a door. It has to come out eventually and when it does, I think a lot of people are gonna be hurt because they never really knew what was happening. Because many people think of it as something they need to figure out on their own, I think it creates problems because they’re naive and don’t understand what they’re committing to. Marriage needs two people who are truthfully willing to commit all the way, and really take when they say “Do you promise to love this man/woman? Do you take this man/women to be your lawfully wedded husband/wife, to love and cherish him/her for sickness and health? For better or worse? Until death do you part?” Those words really mean nothing these days to people. To say you love this person forever isn’t like getting candy. You like it first until you get sick of it. It takes a real heart to go through with all of that because it’s not love just in the beginning. It’s love forever, as said, until death do you part. And yes, people do have the right reasons to get a divorce such as abusive relationships, or pornographic relationships, or whatever the hell you can think of. But really. Why would you marry someone if they had issues like that in the first place? Sure you may have not seen it at first. But that’s why you get to know them for a long time to know what they do and what they’re like so you don’t screw up. And if you’re already in a situation like that, then try to fix it. If you really care about that person, then try to help them get better and get back to having a healthy relationship.
    If you can’t even do the slightest bit of that, then don’t even bother to think about getting married.

    The US economic failures of the past 4 years have damaged the average American family so deeply that divorce is the only outcome for many married couples in America. Not since the Great Depression has there been such an upheaval and so many destructive forces piling up on families already struggling with income loss, job loss, underwater mortgages and aging parents that are making financial demands that simply cannot be accounted for nor remedied in normal manners. Too many Americans are too far gone, emotionally, financially and spiritually to hold their marriages and families together, and the long term destructive forces at play will leave a scare on the American Family for generations to come.

    The divorce rate in America is in a constant state of flux, ebbing and flowing like the tides. But the ongoing failed economic policies of the Obama administration, the continued bailout of a failed economy, unsustainable levels of debt and unemployment, and a collapsed housing market spell certain disaster for the aging baby boomers who planned on getting out while they could. For most American families, marriage is now viewed as a detriment to success, a burden that only exacerbates the attempts of individuals to look out for themselves when the tide turns, and the “Perfect Storm” now looms on the horizon as hordes of the disenfranchised Married American Middle Class make a made rush for the divorce courts of America… cashing out of both their marriage, and the American Institute that is marriage.

For your love to last, dont cheat. Get married with the one u love, stay together, not 4 years, not 10 years, but until death do you part. No fuckin excuses, u shouldnt be getting married if u think u think Whatever something bad happens, u need a divorce. I ONCE HEARD, THAT SOMEONE GOT A DIVORCE BCUZ THE LOVE FADED AWAY. Shut the fuck upp, if u love someone, and marry them the love cant go away. its a fact. My parents have me and my sister, they have been married for 30 years. and they will continue, thats the way it should. be. SO, DONT GET MERRIED, IF YOURE GONA GET A DIVORCE 10 YEARS LATER.

    This is far too oversimplified. There are many, many reasons people get married and divorced. There are many reasons why the divorce rate is increasing. And it’s hard to say that it’s altogether a bad thing.

    The biggest problem with marriage IS marriage. Marriage, as we know it, is a flawed concept to begin with because of what it asks of the signers. Two people cannot possibly know what they will want out of life or from each other in 10, 15, 20+ years, yet they promise to stay together no matter what. It’s delusional. Humans should have realistic expectations of themselves. There’s no evidence we’re a monogamous species. If anything, we have evidence to the contrary. We are pack animals, but not necessarily mate-for-life animals, in general. Some people DO stay together for life and are perfectly content. But it’s not marriage keeping them together. It’s love, mutual respect and appreciation, compatibility, etc. And if marriage contracts offered a more practical approach, say, having an agreed upon expiration date where they can decide to renew it, or let it expire, it might be more effective. In fact, knowing you will have that freedom one day might make it easier to live together until then, and work harder to make the other want to renew it. Or if you could perhaps “marry” more than one person, you won’t feel the need to jump ship if you meet someone else. You could be free to love the ones you’re with, AND the ones you meet. Obviously we’re all capable of loving more than one person at a time, whether we choose to see it that way or not…

    Even the institution of marriage is guilty of divorcing ITSELF, many times over, from associations and practices of the past and from its origin. And that is a good thing, considering what it was invented for–as an exchange of “property” (otherwise known as “women” in today’s society.) It hasn’t been long since that aspect of marriage evolved. And as society progresses and evolves, so does the institution of marriage. It’s neither right nor wrong, it is natural. It isn’t any more “selfish” for a person to seek a divorce as it is for a spouse to expect their partner to never change–or to change with them–or to remain in the marriage to the point of misery.

    Children are effected by divorce not because divorce is bad, but because marriage is bad in that it makes divorce more traumatic. In general, children who grow up in a peaceful, loving, supportive environment are better off. You don’t have to be married to create that for them. You only have to be cooperative and civil.

    You don’t need to be married to be in love or to stay together. You don’t need to be married to have children or to raise them well. So, why do people still get married? Well, love, for one thing. It’s the accepted societal norm to marry someone you fall in love and/or want to procreate with. For another, you gain rights and privileges you wouldn’t have without that little signed contract. To me, this reveals the nature of marriage. As much as it has changed, it is still more about control than actual love.

    We’re far away from more realistic perspectives of marriage becoming socially acceptable. People hold on to their ideal of marriage because it’s so deeply ingrained that they even put pressure on themselves, unconsciously. Not coincidentally, it’s much like the nature of religion. But as long as we feel the need to isolate and cage a living, breathing, free-thinking, ever-changing thing–and by “thing” I mean humans as individuals, as well as the institution of marriage as a whole–we’re going to see collapses everywhere. Marriage as we know it is simply a house made of cards.

    And this is only scratching the surface.

    Don’t get married until you are at least 25. By that time, your brain has fully developed, as well as your likes and dislikes, and your personality. So many 20 year olds “think” they are mature enough, but they really are not.

    Okay, so personally this website has given me no hope what so ever. I got on here to look at the statistics for a school paper I am writing (Marriage vs. Living Together). I recently went through a divorce and it ended ugly. The bastard ran off to Alaska leaving me and our 2 year old son in Georgia because he wanted a 2nd chance at life. Who does that?? Anyway, im not on here to talk about my divorce, but bottom line I have been. Does that mean if I re-marry in the future it will end too? 60% is not very promising and I am fairly disgusted by it. Lets say for chance, my 2nd marriage fails, and hopefully it wont, but does that mean that every time I get married its going to end in divorce? Thats lame. Why waste my time? Thats depressing. Its not like going into a shoe store, you dont just keep trying on different ones until you find one you like and decide to keep them. Thats basic dating right there. Its like getting a good pair of shoes trying them on, standing to make sure they fit good, and then making your desicion to buy them. Im positive that if you buy the shoes wear them for a year, 3 years, 10 years, or however long, that if you take them back to the store you purchased them at they arent going to give you a return or let you swap them out for a new pair just because you dont like them, or maybe they are broken.

    before marriage,couples should have built their relationship on solid grounds called “TRUST & COMMITMENT”, i’m on my second marriage,we were together for 20+ years before getting married,we have done the whole nine yards………..house,kids,dogs and trucks….getting married solidified everything……the commitment is there………couples need to learn to work things together,after getting marriage,there is not “me” anymore but “we” as together there’s endless posibilities.:)

    I am a mental health and theology major. I am writing my thesis on divorce- Mental health and spirituality. I truly believe by studying marriage and the way it should be; the way it used to be and looking at what it is in our world today..the main issue is the fact that no one is properly prepared for marriage. Their is such a lack of marriage preparation in this world. Marriage to the secular world is just a piece of paper and sharing a house, money and children but our society has forgotten the true meaning of marriage, and has taken God out of it..No wonder the world is falling apart. maybe if people really understood marriage and was open to it and properly exposed then there wouldn’t be as many issues but everything is an issue and people need and easy way out. People need to take responsibility and discern their vocation!
