South Africa’s divorce rates have gone up, this is according to the Justice Department’s 2012-13 annual report.

Divorce lawyers and marriage councillors say that sex and money is behind this spike.

The new figures show that the divorce rate has rocketed by 28% from 39 573 to 50 517 cases.

They say that adultery, unrealistic expectations and a lack of sexual intimacy plays a huge part in this, reported the Sunday Times.

According to experts it was also now very easy to get a divorce in South Africa. They say that it is also mostly people in urban areas that split and that although previously dominated by white South Africans, divorce rates were now higher among black South Africans.
