Researching the secrets of success in marriage

Omnes-August 31, 2016-Reading time: < 1 minute

When two young people enter into marriage, they do so with the illusion of loving each other and uniting their lives forever. However, official figures show alarmingly that many couples abandon that dream somewhere along the way: the number of marital breakups is growing steadily every year.

According to the National Institute of Statistics, 162,554 marriages were celebrated in Spain in 2014. In the same year there were 105,893 annulment, separation and divorce judgments, which was a ratio of 2.3 per 1,000 inhabitants. This is 5.4 % higher than what was recorded in 2013.

The figures are worrying because divorce not only has a negative impact on the couple - according to studies, divorced people suffer more health-related problems - but also on their children and society in general.
