SA Marriage Week, held from Sunday (01/09) to Saturday (07/09), focuses on bettering marriage and encouraging couples to understand each other to make marriage work.

This year’s theme is: “Making sense of my, your and our life together.”

The week is held against the backdrop of the high divorce rate in the country. According to findings made in 2018 by Statistics South Africa, on average four out of ten married couples do not make it to their ten-year wedding anniversary.

In 2017 there was a slight increase in marriages, with 139 512 couples that got married. However, the divorce rate also rose by 0,3 %, with 25 390 divorces.
