European Divorce Rates 2011


The United Nations updated their World Demographic Report which includes  marriage and divorce rates.  The data for Europe in 2011  is very complete (only two countries missing– Greece and Italy).  (See comparison to the European divorce rates in 2010).

Gibraltor has the highest rate followed by Russia.  Russia has had a consistently high rate of divorce but it is lower than in 2000.  (see Russian divorce rates over the past 20 years).  The rates of divorce in various countries reflect legal, cultural, and religious values.
