Divorce rate in Europe 2010

The following map, created on TargetMap, shows a divorce rate in Europe in 2010. The Data was taken from ROSSTAT – Russian State Institute of Statistics.

As seen on the map, the divorce rate in Europe, especially in countries like Italy or Ireland is much lower than in Russia. A majority of European countries usually have compulsory waiting periods before the finalization of a divorce. They also have compulsory counseling that must be followed by the divorcing couple prior to finalization of the divorce. These are only two reasons behind the lower divorce rate in Europe. In addition, in countries like Poland or Spain, there is a huge percentage of Christians, who usually do not look to divorce as a solution to a problem in a marriage.
