 Couples in Early 20's Most Likely to Get Divorced

According to the Office for National Statistics, divorce rates in 2009 have fallen down for the 6th consecutive year. This could be because fewer couples prefer to get married. Also influx of immigrants from more traditional societies might have helped to keep the divorce rates down and birth rates up. But relationship experts have cited decline of marriage as the real reason.

However the survey also states that couples who get married in their late 20's are the most likely to get divorced within 5years. When compared across all age groups the divorce rates among couples between 25-29 years was almost double. Nowadays people in the young age group have greater choice and give more importance to personal ambitions and are incompatible with the idea of life-long marriage, which is why more marriages end up in divorce.

According to the survey 1 in 3 couples split before reaching the 15th wedding anniversary as compared to 1 in 5 a generation ago. Relationship experts have attributed this trend to the celebrity culture of 'starter marriages' wherein celebrity couples get divorced within 5 years of marriage before the birth of children.
