Irish marriages last an average of 13 years, although the majority do not end in divorce. Irish couples prefer to separate and live in sin with their new partners rather than go through costly legal proceedings.

Also the almost impossibility of the Catholic Church in the British Isles remarrying divorcees. The Protestant church north and south is similar, particularly the “High Church” style of the Church of Ireland.
