Marriage No Longer Counts in Canada

Canada has announced they will stop tracking national marriage and divorce rates, to save some money now that they have one unmarried couple living together for every two married couples. As a parting shot, here are a couple of interesting statistics from 2008, the last report they will issue, according to The Globe and Mail:


  • 73.2% -- Marriages in Newfoundland and Labrador expected to last until one or both die or they reach their 50th anniversary

  • 37.4% -- Percentage of marriages in the Yukon expected to last until one or both die or they reach their 50th anniversary

What do you think? Are marriages and divorces worth counting?
