Where did you go on your honeymoon?

If you’re still happily married, there’s a big chance it wasn’t the Maldives, according to recent research.

After gathering a list of the most popular honeymoon destinations, researchers surveyed 3100 married and divorced people to see where they went on their honeymoon.

Their analysis led to the top 15 destinations where people were most likely to get divorced.

Maldives, though absolutely beautiful, could lead to ruinous relationships, with 20 per cent of surveyed divorcees visiting the island for their honeymoon.

Marrakech, though romantic as a honeymoon and travel wish-list destination placed second on the list with 17 per cent of separated and divorced couples spending their honeymoon there.

Third place on the list is Bora Bora with 13 per cent of honeymooners no longer with their partner.

One of the more popular honeymoon destinations for Australians, Bali, came fourth with 10 per cent now divorced or separated and rounding out the top five is Mauritius, with 8 per cent of honeymooners now divorced or separated.

Statistically, Nairobi, Maui, Napa Valley and Bangkok are the safest honeymoon destinations, all only having just 1 per cent (31) ending in divorces.

The top 15 honeymoon locations with the highest eventual divorce rates are:

    Wonder if these couples honeymooning on tropical islands also had their first dance to the divorce inspiring songs listed before?

    Another rubbish article, the only link between honeymoon destination and divorce is that all the participants were, presumably, married. This article has no more veracity than the stupidity that linked wedding dance song to divorce. Surely there are better ways to fill up empty space on your newsletter than this sort of junk.
