INDIA, February 1, 2019 (Storypick): Frequently we find news of celeb divorces popping up on our social media feeds. That makes us look around a little, and we see that marriages are literally falling apart these days! Marriages are decreasing in popularity while divorce rates are skyrocketing. But quite shockingly, a study submitted by Unified Lawyers reveals that India has the lowest divorce rate in the world. Only 1% of Indian marriages end in divorce.
According to reports, divorce cases in India happen in "love marriages" as compared to "arranged marriages" at most times. The study also reports that according to religion, Hindus in India have the least number of divorces while Christians in India have the most at 37%. "Indians abide by the principles of Hinduism, which suggests a one man, one woman policy. Indian weddings, no matter the religion, take months of pre-marital rituals and a lot more days before the actual wedding. The whole marriage process, with the parents of both parties involved, establishes a psychological bond between the couple."
The study has stirred a debate which can be read in many of the Twitter responses at "source."
