Palma.—The  divorce rate in the Balearics fell  during the third quarter of this year.
According to the latest data, 739 couples filed for divorce during the third quarter, eight percent fewer than during the same period last year.
However, across Spain, the divorce rate continues to surge.
The number of divorces in Spain rose by 12.5 percent in the third quarter of 2014 with the economic crisis playing a role, according to official statistics.
Of the 27,266 divorce petitions registered between 1 July  and 30 September , 16,456 were by mutual agreement, or 12.7 percent more than a year earlier, the figures from Spain’s General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) show.
