10 Countries with the Highest Divorce Rates

20 June 2024 11:02 WIB

TEMPO.CO, JakartaDivorce is a nightmare for some couples, while others see it as a fresh start. It can be a life-altering event that leaves a trail of heartbreak, yet for others, it becomes a catalyst for personal growth and a chance to build a more fulfilling future.

How common is divorce around the world? According to a renowned law firm Petrelli Previtera LLC, here is a list of 10 countries with the highest divorce rates in 2022, offering a glimpse into factors that may influence marital stability across the globe.

1. Maldives

The Maldives recorded a divorce rate of 5.5 per 1,000 population per year. In 2002, it was listed in the Guinness Book of World Records for the highest divorce rate at 10.97 divorces per 1,000 people. Reasons for the high divorce rate include ease and affordability of ending relationships, increased access to education, and opportunities leading to greater financial independence for women, allowing them to support themselves without relying on men.

2. Kazakhstan

The divorce rate in Kazakhstan stands at 4.6 per 1,000 people. A study by the Kazakh Institute for Equal Rights and Opportunities reported that the causes include interference by relatives, a lack of moral restrictions, and an easy divorce process.

3. Guam

Guam, a small island in the Pacific Ocean, has a divorce rate of 4.3 per 1,000 people. The country’s divorce laws, which ease the process, are blamed for the high rate.

4. Russia

As one of the most populous countries in the world, divorce is common in Russia. The rate stands at 3.9 per 1,000 people. Reasons for the loss of marital commitment are generally alcoholism, economic problems, lack of understanding between spouses, and infidelity.

5. Moldova

Moldova has a divorce rate of 3.8 cases per 1,000 population. About 12% of girls in this Eastern European country marry before the age of 18, leading to many marriages ending in immature and uncommitted couples.

6. Belarus

The divorce rate in Belarus is 3.7 cases per 1,000 people. High levels of unemployment, poverty, domestic violence, alcohol abuse, and housing ownership problems are among the factors straining marriages in the country.

7. China

China records 3.2 divorces per 1,000 people. The high rate of broken marriage is caused by modern views on relationships, more educated and financially independent women, and the stress and pressure from the one-child policy and older generations.

8. Republic of Aruba

The Republic of Aruba, an island in the Caribbean, recorded 3.2 divorces per 1,000 people. Lack of access to education has played a significant role in the country's divorce rate. In some cases, the law allows the period of separation before divorce to be reduced from three years to one year.

9. Lithuania

Economic instability and alcohol abuse contribute to Lithuania's high divorce rate of 2.8 per 1,000 people. High unemployment also increases the likelihood of marital dissolution, especially in rural areas. The law also makes it easier for couples to separate, which only takes about three months to obtain a court decision.

10. Dominican Republic

With a rate of 2.7 per 1,000 people, the Dominican Republic is on the list of countries with the highest divorce rate in the world. Data shows that about 9 percent of girls are forced to marry at the age of 15 and another 31 percent before the age of 18, increasing the chances of divorce as they marry early without maturing. Additionally, the machismo culture in this Caribbean nation encourages men to have affairs.
