Divorce Statistics Infographic – The Low Down About Divorce

CAmazing and illuminating numbers about modern day divorce rate in the U.S. The several items that slapped me in the proverbial face were:

  • 65% of all U.S. divorces are initiated by women
  • Annually, 115,000 women lose health insurance due to divorce
  • State with the highest rate of Divorce: Nevada (bet you could’ve guessed that one)
  • The average first marriage lasts 8 years.

How long did your marriage last? Who initiated the divorce? What were your biggest concerns about getting divorced?

Here’s the big graphic.

And if you have any answers or observations on those stats please post them in the comments.

  1. I contributed to the statistics. I am female and initiated my divorce, and we were married for three years. My biggest concern was selling our condo — specifically, how much money would we lose on it?

      KAT, thanks for your comment. Assets can be a bitch. I’m guessing your didn’t have kids, if the condo was your biggest concern.
