Restrictions Result In Sharp Decline In Marriages

February 23, 2022 | 0 Comments

Marriages in 2020 were “the lowest on record as a result of a 36% decrease,” with a report explaining that the pandemic related restrictions “are a factor for this sharp decline.”

“The 248 marriages registered was the lowest on record as a result of a 36% decrease this past year. Covid-19 pandemic restrictions, such as limited numbers for gatherings, are a factor for this sharp decline,” the recently released Bermuda Digest of Statistics said.

“There were 104 divorces granted in 2020, the joint lowest since 1964 and a 15% year-over-year decrease. Restrictions such as stay-at-home orders may have contributed to this decline.”

In 2020, gatherings were restricted to ten people at some points, which is not exactly conducive to having a nice wedding, resulting in many couples choosing to postpone their weddings.
