New statistics are in about divorce and marriage in Ohio. According to a JournalNews analysis, Ohio is slightly above the national average for divorces. Out of every 1,000 people, 9.5 men and 10 women divorce in Ohio. However, many lawyers indicate the number of people inquiring about a divorce is steadily increasing. Some attribute the dichotomy to the economy, pointing to the fact that bad economic times make divorce a more difficult option.
