We often hear how more couples are divorcing than ever before, but is it true in Pennsylvania?

According to the Pennsylvania Department of Health:

  • 35,610 couples divorced or had their marriages annulled in 2011.*
  • That is the highest number of Pennsylvania divorces and annulments since 2005.
  • Yet, the number of Pennsylvania divorces and annulments in 2011 was still significantly lower than the number of divorces and annulments in the 1980s, 1990s and early 2000s.

If you are part of one of the tens of thousands of couples seeking a Pennsylvania divorce it is important to know that you are not alone and that, ultimately, the statistics are irrelevant. You need to do what is right for you and your family without anyone telling you that divorce has become too common or that the sanctity of marriage is being threatened.
