Colorado is Among the Most Divorce-Prone States in the Country 

— December 6, 2021

Divorce can be traumatizing, not only for the couple that are deciding to split for their reasons but also for children.

According to the CDC, 13.52 out of 1,000 people get a divorce in the State of Colorado. Colorado is ranked 10th in the United States for divorces. Out of 45 states in the country, the divorce rate is 2.7% for every 1,000 Americans.

From 2019 to 2020, the State of Colorado saw a 34 percent increase in divorce filings, causing many divorce professionals to blame the COVID-19 pandemic as a key factor. Data proves that most of these divorce filings started three weeks into the initial COVID shutdown. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic caused financial turmoil for many families.

Why do most people get divorced? 

According to research, many common reasons for divorce include:

  • Lack of commitment
  • Excessive arguing
  • Infidelity
  • Financial problems
  • Domestic abuse
  • Drug use
  • Lack of chemistry

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic has intensified tense relationships by forcing them to quarantine and lockdown together. Many factors have been intensified and brought about during this unprecedented time.
