    "Rate" as in cost to divorce, or rate as it number of marriages that end in divorce?

    If it’s money, why would you care? All you need to know, is what yours is going to cost. See a mediating attorney if you are considering divorce. Agree ahead of time how your estate will be divided. The only way to divorce is civilly…

    "Rate" as in percentage? Last I read about 50%. Interestingly, since the divorce rate has gone up over the last 100 years, the rate of women admitted into mental institution as dropped exactly the same percentage…. Hummmm

    The last I heard, a few months ago.. the divorce rate was 52% of all marriages. Thats pretty high. The statistics are higher for younger couples.

    2005 Statistics from the Department of Health and Human Services.

    Number of marriages: 2,230,000

    Marriage rate: 7.5 per 1,000 total population

    Divorce rate: 3.6 per 1,000 population (46 reporting States and D.C.)

    3.6/7.5 = 48%

    I have heard higher and again thats just from 2005.
