Ev­ery­one has heard the claim that one in every two mar­riages ends in di­vorce… but maybe not. Ac­cord­ing to the lat­est fig­ures from the Of­fice of Na­tional Sta­tis­tics, only 84 in every 10,000 mar­riages ended last year. This made it the low­est di­vorce rate since 1973, when le­gal re­forms made it eas­ier to end a mar­riage. With the num­ber of op­po­site-sex di­vorces at 101,669, the re­port said, ‘Di­vorce rates re­main well be­low the most re­cent peaks in 2003 and 2004.’ Who knows, maybe it is ‘ till death us do part’ af­ter all?
