If you’re married and are really in love, and you live in Limerick City, you should move. Your marriage has a one in seven chance of breaking down. Here are the ten Irish counties or cities with the least stable marriage rates: >>>

The Bottom Ten

  1. Limerick City (over 14 marriages in every hundred break down)
  2. Dublin City (over 13 marriages in every hundred break down)
  3. Galway City (13 marriages in every hundred break down)
  4. Waterford City (nearly 13 marriages in every hundred break down)
  5. Wicklow (over 12 marriages in every hundred break down)
  6. Louth (nearly 12 marriages in every hundred break down)
  7. Wexford (over 11 marriages in every hundred break down)
  8. Cork City (over 11 marriages in every hundred break down)
  9. South Dublin (over 11 marriages in every hundred break down)
  10. Fingal (over 11 marriages in every hundred break down)

Says Who?

  • Figures based on latest census.
  • Stable marriages based on number of people who are either in a first marriage, widowed or remarried after being widowed.
  • Unstable marriages based on number of people who are either separated, divorced or remarried after a divorce.
