Military Divorce Statistics for Women
Posted on Mar 8, 2011 7:00am PST
If you are a woman in the military then there are some cold statistics
that you should know: women in the military are more than twice as likely
to get a divorce as their male comrades. This number nearly triples for
According to the Pentagon, the numbers for last year show that 7.8 percent
of women in the military got a divorce, compared to just 3 percent of
military men. Amongst the enlisted corps these numbers diverged even more,
with over 9 percent of women getting a divorce while less than 3 percent
of enlisted men seeking a divorce.
Regardless of whether women are enlisted or not divorce can be a difficult
time for anyone. However, statistics show that military women are more
likely to wind up homeless after a divorce than non-enlisted women. It
is also difficult on any children involved as there are more single mothers
in the military than single dads at the moment, and many of these are
overseas fighting for their country.
