That is certainly the grim forecast for men in the South East of England – they are three times more likely to file for divorce than their North East counterparts.
The figures see one in 67 men and one in 72 women split up in the South East – whereas the North East saw just one in 194 men and one in 211 women call it quits in 2021.
The national average stands at 1 in 84 for men and 1 in 89 for women divorcing in the same year.
It means places like Newcastle, Middlesbrough, and Sunderland could be the best place to tie the knot.
