A survey indicates that almost 25% of divorcees considered divorce during their first two years of marriage. Here’s one article on the survey from the Telegraph. Here’s another from the Daily Record. The survey is commissioned by the London law firm Misheon de Reya, and it also shows that about a third of divorces occur withiin the first five years of marriage.
About a fourth of those divorcing blamed lack of sexual intimacy, and about one in 10 blamed the other spouse’s family. The big three reasons blamed by spouses for their divorce, however, were “drifting apart,” infidelity, and money. The peak divorce age for women is 25-29, and the peak for men is 30-34.
