Statistics about Weddings

WE SUPPORT CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE – FOR YOUR SAKE AND YOUR CHILDREN’S SAKE!          Just read the facts……….

 

IT’S SADLY TRUE THAT 42% MARRIAGES END IN DIVORCE…………..

BUT THE STEEPEST RISE IN BROKEN RELATIONSHIPS IS BETWEEN UNMARRIED COHABITEES

AND ……………………

20% OF PARENTS WHO LIVE TOGETHER BUT ARE UNMARRIED

80% OF PARENTS ARE MARRIED

43% OF UNMARRIED PARENTS SPLIT UP BY THEIR CHILD’S 5TH BIRTHDAY

8% ONLY OF MARRIED PARENTS SPLIT UP BY THIS TIME

 

93% OF MARRIED PARENTS ARE STILL TOGETHER WHEN THEIR CHILDREN BECOME TEENAGERS

 

£48 BILLION IS THE ANNUAL COST TO BRITAIN OF FAMILY BREAKDOWN

 

MARRIED STATISTICS – THERE HAS BEEN A 29% DECREASE IN DIVORCES GRANTED TO COUPLES IN THE FIRST 5 YEARS OF MARRIAGE

AFTER 10 YEARS OF MARRIAGE THE DIVORCE RATE IS DOWN TO 1.8%

 

IF YOU ARE MARRIED TODAY YOU WILL PROBABLY STAY MARRIED FOR LIFE

BUT IF YOU COHABIT TODAY AND HAVE CHILDREN…………

YOU WILL ALMOST CERTAINLY SPLIT BEFORE YOUR CHILD’S 15TH BIRTHDAY

So at a time when teenage children need the security and stability of a stable parental relationship it is most unlikely they will experience it unless their parents are married!

87% OF WEALTHIER MOTHERS ARE MARRIED

ONLY 24% OF POORER MOTHERS ARE MARRIED

“Couples often think that the kids should always come first, but smart couples know that the best foundation for the family is their relationship. In protecting that, they can then best love their children.”  Bear Grylls, TV Explorer / Chief Scout
