Divorce rate for 1.000 marriages in France 2015, by duration of the marriage

Number of divorces for 1.000 marriages in France as of December 31, 2015, by duration of the marriage

by Statista Research Department, last edited Aug 9, 2019
Divorce rate for 1.000 marriages in France 2015, by duration of the marriage In 2017, the highest divorce rate concerned five year-long marriages with 25.2 divorces per thousand marriages. France counts five types of divorce proceedings, going from mutual consent to fault. This variety has been decided to modernize the process of divorce and has also instituted a new divorce without judiciary process. In a country where the divorce rate reached 55 per every 100 marriages in 2016, couples do not always have to pass before the judge to get divorced.
The longer you are married, the least you are willing to get divorced

In 2017, divorces in France largely concerned marriages which lasted between 5 to 24 years. That same year only 2,771 divorces were pronounced for a couple married for 35 to 39 years. As seen before, in 2015 the divorce rate for five year-long marriages reached 25.2 per 1,000, compared to 8 per one thousand marriages for 25 year-long marriages. This phenomenon could be explained by the fact that older generations appear to divorce less than younger ones.

Getting divorced in France

Mutual consent represented the majority of divorce proceedings in France in 2017. This procedure allows couples to make an agreement with their lawyer which will point all the effects of the separation. With this new procedure divorced couples do not need to pass before the judge anymore. However, contentious divorces are still common in France and concerned more than 14,400 divorces pronounced in France in 2017 which involved one child. Consequently, with a high divorce rate in France, more and more children do have divorced parents now. In 2016, almost 4 percent of children aged 13 years old in France were living in joint physical custody.
