59 percent of marriages for women under the age of 18 end in divorce within 15 years.

One study found that when the wife alone had experienced a parental divorce, her odds of divorce increased to 59 percent. When both spouses experienced parental divorce, the odds of divorce nearly tripled to 189 percent.
