Divorce Statistics

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.
