Iraq's divorce rate steadily mounting: Judicial source

Court judge attributes trend to illiteracy, underage marriage and economic factors

By Naza Mohamed

BAGHDAD (AA) - Iraq’s divorce rate has risen noticeably in recent years, a local judiciary source said Wednesday.

“Indications suggest a steadily increasing national rate of divorce, which is now significantly higher than previously,” Ahmed al-Saaedi, a judge at Baghdad’s Personal-Status Court, told Anadolu Agency.

Al-Saaedi attributed the phenomenon to “rising illiteracy, underage marriage, and a host of economic reasons, including high levels of unemployment”.

In the past, the number of divorce cases in Iraq had averaged roughly 50,000 a year. This number now exceeds 70,000, however, according to estimates.
