Is Divorce Rate Increasing or Dropping During Pandemic?

Is Divorce Rate Increasing or Dropping During Pandemic?

Surprisingly, not only in the state of Arizona, but many other states are facing a decline number of divorce rate. Although people tend to believe and reasonably predict that pandemic and quarantine should have caused more irreconcilable problems between married couples which lead to a dissolution. 

In fact, recent American Family Survey data found the number of divorces dropped 11% from 2019 to 2020. Of the married couples surveyed, 65% said they appreciate their spouse more. Sixty percent said it deepened their commitment to their marriage. 

Some of the key findings:

• Alaska, Maine and Iowa saw the largest decreases in divorces.

• Divorces dropped 11% nationally the first year of the pandemic

• Arizona divorce declines rank No. 8 in the nation.

• Divorces declined an average of 21.2% nationally over the last 11 years.

• Maine, Minnesota and Massachusetts have the largest increases in marriages.

Accordingly, it is a possibility that couples spend more time together and being "forced" to be closer during lockdown and pandemic can actually create a more positive and stronger marriage.
