Marriage is a HUGE commitment and it's really not for everyone.

Now it's been revealed that the county with the most divorce per capita is Carlow. The county's rate of 116 divorces per 100,000 of the population is the highest in the country.

Just behind Carlow is Dublin, where the rate of divorce is 104.8 per 100,000.

Which is no surprise, as you'd expect the big cities to have a higher rate of divorce with more people living there.

The South West come in third and fourth place with Tipperary at 99.7 and Clare at 95.2.

Louth is the fifth-worst for divorce with a rate of 94.25, all well above the nationwide figure.

Those statistics, compiled from data from the Courts Service, refer to the number of applications for divorce in 2016.

There were a total of 4,100 divorce applications that year.

The county with the lowest rate of divorce in the country is Kilkenny, which borders Carlow.

Kilkenny had a rate of just 45.4 per 100,000 people back in 2016.
