The paper analyzes divorced marriages in Croatia in the period from 1985 to 2015, based on the available data from the Croatian Bureau of Statistics. The results show that during this period 153.535 marriages were divorced. Young people aged 20 to 29 years of age divorce the most. Considering the duration, most marriages divorce after 3-4 years . About half of divorced marriages are marriages with children, most of which are marriages in which one child is born. Those in which three or more children are born, have the lowest divorce rate. After divorce, children are usually given to their mother for custody. The end of a patriarchalism, emancipation of women, individualization, economic changes, changes in legislation and court practice, new value system, cuouple's differences in acquired occupation and education, changes in family composition and forms - all these are well - known factors that affected divorce rates in the past 30 years. Taking into consideration that annual divorce rates are becoming higher and higher, we can conclude that in Croatia there has never been more divorces and less new marriages. Individualism, desire for career developement, new division of labor, abandonment of tradition - all this, with the burden of an economic crisis - has led to an increase in the annual divorce rate.
