The age groups analyzed were 15 to 29 years old, 30 to 59 years old and from 60 years old. In general, in Mexico there are 100 million 600 thousand people in these three age groups; two, 36.9% were married; 33.1%, single; 17.8%, to the free union; and finally 12.2% were in a previous relationship (separated, divorced or widowed). But here is the strong point:

  • From 15 to 29 years old: 72.7% are single
  • From 30 to 59 years old: 48.5% are married and 22.5% in a common-law union
  • 60 years and over: 52.6% are married and 23.2% are widowed

How do you get married in Mexico?

According to the most recent figures from INEGI, in 2022 there were 507 thousand 52 marriages, including 98.9% between couples of different sexes and 1.1% between couples of the same sex. Likewise, they quantified certain characteristics that were repeated in heteronormative marriage:

  • In 65.2% of marriages, the man is taller than the woman
  • In 52% of marriages, both parties work
  • In 53% of marriages, both parties had the same level of education

How to get divorced in Mexico?

Another aspect quantified by the Institute is the divorce rate, which is increasing, since it has risen to 15.1 divorces for every 100 marriages in 2010 to 32.9 in 2022, more than double in 12 years. Furthermore, 99.6% of divorces correspond to heterosexual couples.

How do weddings take place?

Finally, INEGI asked married couples in Mexico if they believe their relationship is going well. In this regard, we can observe that the difference in appreciation of the relationship, even if the majority is favorable, varies depending on whether we question a male or female person, because if the 6.4% of men He admitted that his relationship was bad, 11.3% of women said their relationship was not going well.

This means that women are the first to express their dissatisfaction in the marriage and men are usually the last to notice that the relationship is not going well.
