Morocco: more divorces and sharp decline in marriages


The health crisis not only impacted the Moroccan economy, but also caused a wave of divorces and above all a decline in marriages. This is what the National Association of Young Adouls reveals.

The number of new marriages has fallen significantly in 2020 compared to the year 2019 (before the Covid), declares Abderrazak Bouita, president of the National Association of Young Adouls, to the newspaper Le Matin, noting “a historic decline” in the number new unions. Health restrictions have not allowed more marriages to be celebrated, and despite the easing of these measures, several celebrations have been canceled or postponed, he said, adding that the economic crisis has also led several couples to give up their wedding. their wedding plans.

Added to this decline in the number of new marriages was a worrying increase in the number of divorces due to “contention” during the period. “One of the courts of the Kingdom recorded 101 cases of divorce in a month”, notes the official, justifying this increase by the withdrawal to adouls of the prerogative of declaration of divorce for the benefit of the courts, and by the absence of executives dedicated to supporting new couples in these courts.

The president of the Adouls Association also deplores the practice of many couples exposing their differences on social media, which in most cases leads to tension and divorce.
