This statistic ties the Western Cape with the Gauteng province for the highest divorce rate in the country.

According to Statistics South Africa’s annual marriage and divorce stats, more women than men have initiated divorce proceedings.

The median age of bridegrooms has increased from 34 years in 2012 to 36 years in 2016, and from 30 years to 32 years for women during the same period. The median age for divorce for men is 44 and 40 for women.

Interestingly, the Western Cape, Gauteng, KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape were the provinces with the highest number of divorces granted, contributing more than 77% of the divorces granted in 2017 in South Africa.
