Love may be a gamble but researchers have crunched the numbers to find out what the stats say about all things marriage related for couples in the UAE.
A new report published by the Abu Dhabi Statistics Centre reveals what marriage and divorce trends were like last year and the results are…equal parts interesting and random.
For instance, the most popular month for Emirati weddings is March and, ironically, the most popular month for divorces is also March
And June sees the lowest number of weddings
While September saw the fewest divorces
70.9 percent of all marriage contracts were between a “mixed” couple
Divorce among citizens reached 7.6 cases per 1,000 population
Of which, 28.2 per cent of the divorce cases last year showed that couples didn’t endure one full year in marriage, while more than 50 per cent of the couples didn’t complete 3 years after marriage
