Did you know that...
7 in 10 marriages are conducted by a civil celebrant?
1 in 5 will marry more than once in their lifetime?
4 in 5 couples live together before tying the knot?
1 in 3 marriages end in divorce?
For more of these stats, check out our latest infographic about Australian trends in weddings and marriages!

In 4 of 5 (79%) marriages, couples lived together before tying the knot. Interestingly, couples who did live together before getting married tended to be slightly older than those who had not lived together.

Australia sees an average of 332 weddings per day, with this figure rising to an average of 577 in October, the busiest month of the year, and down to 190 in June, the quietest month of the year!
