Let’s face it- ‘Happily ever after’ doesn’t always work out and when it doesn’t, what you are left with if not planned out properly is a mess.
Divorce is something that the Australian Bureau of Statistics says affects a number of Australians every year with the below information:
Key points for 2017 include:
- The number of divorces granted increased by 2,428 (5.2%) in 2017 and the crude divorce rate increased from 1.9 divorces per 1,000 estimated resident population in 2016 to 2.0 divorces per 1,000 estimated resident population in 2017.
- The median age at divorce for both males and females was unchanged in 2017. For males the median age at divorce was 45.5 years of age and the median age of females was 42.9 years of age.
- The median duration from marriage to divorce in 2017 also remained stable at 12.0 years.
