Divorce rate is growing. A recent EU-wide survey reveals an overall increase in the number of couples getting divorced. Britain and Finland have the joint highest divorce rate in the EU, while Ireland and Luxembourg have the lowest.
The figures show an average of 1.8 divorces for every 1,000 people in the EU. However, Britain and Finland have the rate of 2.8 divorces per 1,000, compared with just 0.6 per 1,000 in Luxembourg and Ireland.
The trend is not different in Nigeria. Though there may be a dearth of official statistics, Council on Foreign Relations took the research to the number of divorce cases filled in the different courts in the country over a period of time. The result is an assertion that the divorce rate is rising.
Many factors have been blamed for the rising rate of divorce worldwide. The question is what do you think is most responsible for divorce? Is it Money, is it sex? Could it be compatibility issues? Or are there other issues that are not so visible?
