Statistics Concerning Divorce

The CDC reports statistics concerning divorce and marriage that many find interesting:

  • 20% of marriages will end in divorce within 5 years
  • 35% of marriages end in divorce within 10 years
  • 43% of marriages end in divorce within 15 years
  • 50% of marriages end in divorce within 20 years

The top 10 states for divorce by volume are:

  • Texas
  • Florida
  • New York
  • Ohio
  • North Carolina
  • Illinois
  • Michigan
  • Pennsylvania
  • Virginia Washington

Other interesting statistics

  • Someone gets divorced every 10 to 13 seconds.
  • Those who marry between the ages of 20 to 24 have the highest rates of divorce.
  • Nevada has the highest per capita divorce rate.
  • The divorce rate for a third marriage is 73%.
  • There is an inverse relationship between education level and divorce rate.
  • Christian couples have the same divorce rate as the national average.

Other statistics show that the average cost of a divorce is $50,000. Like any set of numbers, very expensive divorces can bring this average up and skew the numbers. This statistic is also a nationwide statistic and different jurisdictions may see wide fluctuations in this number. For example, I would estimate that the average cost of a divorce for a middle-class family in New Jersey is about $15,000 for each side. Of course, some cases don't exceed $5,000 while others exceed $50,000.
