Maine Divorces End Amicably Much Less Than The National Average
Divorce can be messy. In fact, for a lot of people, it's one of the hardest things they'll ever have to face in their life. Nationally, a little less than half of marriages have ended on good terms. But sadly, that number is a lot lower for Mainers.
The website usawillguru.com recently conducted a study to determine how often marriages end badly. They polled over 5,000 divorcees, and found that nationally, 45% of marriages end on good terms. Roughly half seems like a pretty good amount of people who can be civil towards each other after a split.
However, it seems that the amount of people in Maine who ended their marriage amicably is much lower. Here in the Pine Tree state, only 23% of divorcees polled reported that it ended on good terms.
Another interesting stat included in the study - just 3% of Mainers have included their ex in their will. So chances are, if you're looking to part ways with your husband or wife, you can pretty much expect to be cut out.
