Spain sees 360 divorces a day and two million inhabitants are from broken marriages
08 December 2013 @ 14:49

OVER 130,000 couples a year get divorced in Spain – that's 360 a day, according to chairman of the National Association of Family Solicitors, César Tomás Martín.

In his self-help manual, How to win your divorce, Martín gives real-life cases of couples who have 'reached the limit' and believe a separation is the only answer, and how they can sometimes be brought back from the edge via certain techniques.

The solicitor says he 'does not always recommend' divorce as the answer, but that there are some cases where there is no other option for the sanity of the couple, he admits.

Martín says the average divorce in Spain takes four months, with an uncontested divorce costing around 1,000 euros and those which end up the courts, about 3,000 euros.

The average divorce comes after a marriage of 15 years, and the couple are typically aged between 42 and 44.
