Report: Spain shows Europe’s highest divorce rate

May 31, 2007

From Catholic World News:

A survey by Spain’s Institute of Family Politics has found that Spain has the highest divorce rate in Europe.

Three out of every four Spanish marriages now end in divorce. In 2006, there were 142,000 divorces in the country.

In 2005, Spain’s governing Socialist coalition passed legislation liberalizing access to divorce, bringing a jump in the number of broken marriages.
