How prevalent is divorce in the United States?

Marriages end for many reasons, and divorce has become an increasingly popular topic of discussion in recent years. Some people may not realize just how many married couples end their marriage, and this information can be beneficial for people who may feel like they are alone or facing challenges that many couples do not have to deal with. Moreover, those who are experiencing emotional issues related to their divorce may benefit from counseling and a thorough examination of the different legal options that are in front of them.

According to data that was provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, there were more than 827,000 divorces in the U.S. during 2016. It is important to keep in mind that this data on couples who decided to end their marriage was only collected from 44 states and the District of Columbia. Out of these states, the divorce rate in 2016 was 3.2 out of 1,000, while the marriage rate was more than twice that at 6.9 out of 1,000. Therefore, it is clear that many more people will file for divorce in the years to come.

With so many couples deciding to end their marriage, it is important to realize that there are many factors which can lead to the breakdown of a married couple’s relationship. Even if you never saw your marriage coming to an end, you may have found yourself in this position and you may be feeling overwhelmed about your future. When these challenges arise, preparation is critical, and you should develop a thorough understanding of your options.
