Rates of marriage, divorce and pre-nuptial agreements in the UK
Here is some interesting news that is probably familiar to many people in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland: There are fewer divorces being performed in the UK, but that is due to the fact that there are fewer marriages being performed. According toThe Telegraph the divorce statistics show that divorce numbers are at their lowest level since back in 1974. The reduced rates of marriages and divorces are reflected in UK marriage records.
Overall in the UK, 6 out of 10 lawyers asked about their clients said that more engaged Brits are amenable to signing prenuptial agreements. The study also reported that falling out of love was a more common reason for divorce than extra-marital affairs or infidelity.
