This Is How Likely You Are to Get a Divorce in Your Lifetime

© Provided by ETNT, LLC   40 Reasons Getting Divorced In Your 40s Isn’t So Bad

By Ashley Moor, Best Life

You’ve probably heard people say that “half of all marriages” end in divorce. But while that was once true (hello, 1980s!), today the real figure is actually a little bit lower.

As of 2018, between 42 and 45 percent of all marriages in America end in divorce.

What accounts for the decrease? Well, according to a a Bloomberg report, people under 45 are waiting until their relationships are rock-solid before taking the plunge. (That’s right, there’s another thing you can blame millennials for: the decrease in divorce rates in the United States.)

But it’s not all. According to the National Vital Statistics Report in 2003, where you live in the country matters, too. If you live in a red state, you’re 27 percent more likely to get a divorce, since people tend to marry at younger ages in those more traditionally conservative states.

Also—and this one’s fairly obvious, from a Freudian psychological perspective, at least—on a more personal level, you’re 40 percent more likely to seek a divorce from your partner if you witnessed the divorce of your own parents. And if a parent (or two) married someone else after attaining a divorce, you’re 91 percent more likely to get divorced, according to Understanding the Divorce Cycle: The Children of Divorce in the Own Marriages by Nicholas Wolfinger, a professor of family and consumer studies at the University of Utah.

Aside from these more obvious statistics, you are more likely to get divorced at least one time throughout your life if there’s only one smoker in your relationship, if you have a daughter, or if you’re an evangelical Christian.

Despite these figures, however, researchers are still quick to point out how the divorce rate is steadily declining in the United States—so there’s no need to doubt the strength of your marriage just yet.
