As you can imagine, our divorce lawyers in Barrie, Collingwood, Orillia, Midland, Muskoka, and Newmarket work with a lot of people who are not in a hurry to jump back into married life.
That definitely seems to be how the majority of Canadian divorcees feel, as a recent survey says that 66 percent of divorced Canadians said they did not have remarriage intentions. Another 23 percent said they were uncertain.
These findings were recently published in The Vanier Institute of Family’s report, called Separation and Divorce in Canada: By The Numbers.
Some other interesting findings:
- We’ve seen an 8 percent decline in the number of initiated divorce cases between 2006–07 and 2010–11 in reporting provinces and territories
- The average duration of marriage for Canadians who finalized a divorce in 2008 was 13.7 years
- 19 percent of Canadians surveyed in 2011 reported that their parents had separated or divorced
- 41% of marriages in Canada will end by the 30th year of marriage (2008 estimate)
