Divorce increases to highest level since 2009

  • Posted

Figures released in the news last week show that the number of divorces last year in England and Wales have increased to their highest level since 2009.

It is believed that the reason for higher divorce levels is due to ‘household debt’ and ‘stagnating wages’. It is also revealed that women in their 30’s and men in their mid 40’s have the highest divorce levels.

It goes without saying that wherever possible, anybody experiencing relationship issues should seek professional support such as counselling in order to support them through any difficult times, with the hope of rebuilding any broken bridges.
