Are you ready for this? You probably already knew that divorce was common in the United States, but did you know that, according to divorce lawyer Vikki Ziegler, a couple gets divorced every 13 seconds in this country? She adds that 49 percent of all first-time marriages end in divorce, while second marriages end in divorce 64 percent of the time, and third marriages have a 73 percent failure rate.
