Marriages and divorces

A total of 80 marriages involving at least one person of Monegasque nationality were celebrated. The marriage rate has therefore returned to the 2013 level.

Monegasques are getting married later and later: at 29.5 years for women and 31.4 for men.

The number of divorces which took place in 2016 is not yet definitively known, as a result of delays in this information reaching the Civil and Nationality Registry. These delays are inherent in legal proceedings. The gross divorce rate in 2015 was 3,8 ‰, at the lowest since 2005.
