10-02-2015

Almost half the marriages in the Czech Republic fail, with the average union lasting for 13 years, according to figures released by the Czech Statistics Office. Czech marriages most frequently end after three to five years but in recent years there has been a rise in the number of couples getting divorced after over a quarter century together. However, there has been a declining trend in the number of divorces, which fell from 31,000 in 2005 to 28,000 in 2013.
