Analyse des séparations légales par promotions de mariages en Italie


  • Maria Paola Castiglioni
  • Gianpiero Dalla Zuanna


This short paper presents the trends in legal separation in Italy by marriage-cohort and duration, and discusses future prospects. To catch a glimpse of the future of legal marital dissolution in Italy, the authors: (i) project the probabilities of legal separation by duration; (ii) perform a territorial analysis of the twenty Italian regions, suggesting the possible explanations for territorial differences; (iii) compare Italy and Spain (where divorce became legal in 1981), and examine the situations in other western countries, where marital dissolutions became widespread earlier (USA, UK, and France). Many clues suggest that legal separation will becoming increasingly frequent over the coming years for all marriage cohorts.
