It is noted that the reason for the decline in the number of marriages in the last year was a pandemic. However, such tendency has been observed before.
Ukrainians prefer living separately in a civil marriage.
It is worth noting that since the beginning of the quarantine, Ukrainian residents have married six times more often than divorced. Relevant statistics were published by the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine.
107,069 Ukrainians registered their marriage from March 12 to October 10, 2020. At the same time, the number of divorces was 16,475 during the same period.
As it was reported earlier, according to the conclusions of Gallup International in 2020, Ukraine once again appeared in the top of the unhappiest countries among 41 interviewed. The happiness index dropped sharply compared to last year. If in 2019 it was 33%, in 2020 - only 14%.
