Divorce rate percentages vary from study to study. This is due partly to the fact that it is not possible to determine that a couple will never get divorced until one of them dies. However estimates can be made, and they tend to vary between 35% - 48%. The National Center for Health Statistics reported on May 24, 2001, that 43 percent of (then) current marriages break up within the first 15 years of marriage (see http://www.cdc.gov/nchs/pressroom/01news/firstmarr.htm).
