Teen marriage divorce rates are significantly higher when compared with couples who married at a later age.
If a bride entered into the nuptials before the age of 18, there is a one third chance that she will be divorced within the first five years of her marriage. There is a 50 percent chance that teenage marriages will end in divorce within 10 years as well.
If children are involved in a teenage relationship before a marriage occurs, the odds of the couple staying together until they are 40-years-old is roughly 30 percent. Approximately 8 percent of teen mothers marry the father of their child within one year of the child being born.
