According to the data of the European Statistics Agency, only 1.6 per 1,000 people ended their marriage in 2019, which puts Bulgaria at the bottom of the ranking in terms of the number of divorces. Only Malta and Ireland have fewer registered divorces - 0.7 per 1,000 people, followed by Slovenia (1.2), Italy (1.4) and Croatia (1.5).
At the same time, in 2019, Bulgaria was in the "golden middle" of the EU in terms of the number of marriages - 4.2 per 1,000 people. This is a slight increase from 2018, when marriages were 4.1 per 1,000 people.
For 2019, Cyprus (8.9 marriages per 1,000 people), Lithuania (7), Latvia and Hungary (6.7), as well as Romania (6.6) stand out with the most marriages per capita. They are followed by Slovakia (5.4), Denmark and Malta (5.3).
The lowest marriage rates were reported in Italy (3.1), Portugal and Slovenia (3.2), and also in France, Spain and Luxembourg (3.5).
The long-term trend in the EU shows that the number of marriages is falling, while the number of divorces is increasing.
