Marriage & Divorce Rates for Kentucky

In 2015, the marriage rate for Kentucky was 7.2 and the divorce rate was 3.7. (Rates are the number of occurrences per 1000 total population.)

The Commonwealth of Kentucky no longer publicly reports marriage and divorce rates by county.

Raw numbers suggest that divorce is on the decline. However, with the rise of cohabitation and the decline of the marriage rate from 8.7 in 2007 to 7.2 in 2015, the numbers have maintained steadily with total divorces across Kentucky holding at just over 50% of total marriages.
