Most people don't get married believing that they are going to end up divorced, but unfortunately, it happens quite frequently. Thankfully, New York doesn't have the highest divorce rate in the United State. According to the United States Census, that honor goes to Arkansas where the divorce rate in 2019 was the highest at 10.7. New York actually ranked very low when it comes to the divorce rate. In 2019, the rate in NY was 6.1.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information,

The most commonly reported major contributors to divorce were lack of commitment, infidelity, and conflict/arguing. The most common 'final straw' reasons were infidelity, domestic violence, and substance use. More participants blamed their partners than blamed themselves for the divorce.
