The Countries with the Highest Divorce Rates

In 2016, a study was completed to find out which countries had the highest rate of divorce. Here are the results:


The Maldives is number one with 10.97 per 1,000 inhabitants getting divorced annually. Most believe that the number is so high because premarital sex is taboo and so a lot of couples marry young.


Conversely, Russia’s divorce rate is 4.5 per 1,000 inhabitants, however most couples in Russia also get married young.


Aruba’s divorce rate is very close to Russia’s with 4.4 per 1,000 inhabitants getting divorces.


The divorce rate here is 4.1 per 1,000 inhabitants.

United States

And finally, America is number five with a rate of 3.6 per 1,000 inhabitants getting divorced yearly. Some believe this is because ‘no fault’ divorces are legal in the USA and so it is easier to get a divorce here than other parts of the world, such as the UK.
