15 Countries with the Highest Divorce Rates in the World in 2017

The number of divorces is getting higher and higher in our days, so it’s edifying to follow the list of countries with the highest divorce rates in the world in 2017. Insider Monkey has recently published an interesting article about it. Marriage is one of the most sacred thing that can happen between to people, and yet there are more and more people who declare to stop this life-long partnership with their spouses. Why do people get divorced? What are the common reasons? Why can’t we do everything for our marriages? I think most people only want to get nowadays, and they don’t really meant to give, although giving is a great thing.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of countries with the highest divorce rates in the world in 2017 from their list.

The first one is my home country. Unfortunately Hungary is in the top ten lists concerning to several negative statistics, as well. We can show 45% as divorce to marriage ratio…. Hungary shares the same divorce to marriage ratio as Belarus, so basically these two spots can be swapped. But, due to the data being most up to date in the case of Hungary, insider Monkey decided to put Hungary ahead of Belarus. As you can see, about 45% of marriages ended in a divorce in Hungary per 1,000 people which is really a terrifying ratio. But do understand that, we are not talking about per 1,000 marriages here, rather the rough number of marriages that takes place for every 1,000 people. The second country on our list now is Estonia, with a divorce to marriage rate of 50%! Pretty much half the marriages that take place in Estonia end up in a divorce, or at least that is what our data indicates. This northern European country is the first country with a divorce rate of 50%. Since we are barely starting our list of countries with the highest divorce rates in the world in 2017, things can only get worse from here on. If you are in Estonia and thinking about tying the knot, there’s a very high possibility of a divorce. At last, but not least let’s check out Finland’s divorce to marriage ratio that is 56%. Even when both partners file for a divorce, they must first get through a 6 month long reconsideration period, and then the divorce is finalized. But still, as you can see when it comes to divorce in Finland, they do not like to reconsider that much.
