Over 120,000 couples divorce each year in England and Wales. In addition, there are married couples who decide not to divorce but who feel they can no longer live together and just wish to separate. For those living together the rates of separation are greater than for married couples and, for Civil Partners, although the number entering into Civil Partnerships rose in 2010 to a total of over 6,000, the dissolution figures have also continued to rise to a total of over 500.
