Marriage is a union of two people and their families into a lifetime of a relationship based on trust, security, love and respect for one another. This is an institution which is followed and recognised all across the world but with passing times, lesser people believe in getting married.
There are several reasons for getting married but even inspite of that, we see many opting out of it or not going for it altogether. Marriage rate is a figure which defines the number of married people as compared to the total population of a particular place or country.
The country with the highest marriage rate is Antigua and Barbuda which has a marriage rate of 21 per 1000 per year. With a marriage rate of 20.1 per 1000 per year, Maldives is another country which has one of the highest marriage rates in the entire world. Barbados is another nation where there are many married couples.
Liechtenstein has a marriage rate of 12.8 per 1000 per year and this rate makes it one of the top countries with the highest marriage rates. Cyprus and Seychelles are some other countries on this list and have marriage rates of 12.1 and 11.5 per 100 per year respectively. These 2 nations are followed by South Africa, Jamaica, Ethiopia and Iran.
