Irvine has one of the lowest domestic abuse rates in American, but despite the safety in which couples live, divorce is an imminent reality for many. With a national marriage rate of 6.8 per 1,000 people and a divorce rate of 3.8 per 1,000, marriage counseling services are in higher demand.2 Orange County unfortunately has one of the highest divorce rates in the country.
