Divorce rate falls again

Published: 21st February 2011 - Category: Bastow Blogs - Author: Lynne Bastow

According to the Office of National Statistics the number of divorces in England and Wales has fallen for the sixth year running.

In 2009 67% of divorce petitions were filed by women and more than half of those were based on the fact proven being the husband’s behaviour.

People are getting divorced later, but they are getting married later also. The percentage of divorces is increasing based on the number of years married.

If less people are getting divorced surely there should be less need for public funding? Or are more people from low income groups getting divorced as a proportion of the total?

More people are choosing to cohabit. There is bound to be a further review of cohabitation rights. Will this review include the need for Mediation Assessment? If not, the Courts could be emptied of divorcing couples only to be replaced by separating, cohabiting couples.
