Almost six out of 10 people believe that there are not enough legal hurdles to deter couples from rushing into divorce.

A poll was conducted by the Office of National Statistics. Two thirds of those polled thought that infidelity of one or more spouses is the main cause of relationship drama. 57% agreed that “it was too easy to divorce these days”

Women were slightly more inclined to agree with the statement than men (59% vs 55%). Not only that, most young people aged 18 to 24 also agreed.

58 per cent of the people polled, are currently married and they agreed with the statement, so too did 56 per cent of those who are divorced themselves.
