April 8, 2013


As stepparents, we often speak about divorce and the effects of divorce on children. But what do we really know about divorce? Here are the latest statistics. 


41% of first marriages result in divorce. 

60% of second marriages result in divorce.

73% of third marriages result in divorce. 

A divorce occurs every 13 seconds in the United States.

Half of all American children will witness the break up of a parent's marriage. In addition, close to half of those children will also see the break up of a parent's second marriage.
