(KXXV) -

According to a study, Americans are the seventh nationality to “call it quits”.

Tech.co, released a map that ranks nations according to how ‘lucky in love’ they are. The map is based on comparing data on marriage and divorce rates for 50 countries across Europe, America, and Australia.

Russia ranked first for the “Most Unlucky in Love”, with a divorce rate of 4.7 per 1,000 people. According to Tech.co, separations in Russia happen more frequently than any other country in the study.

Americans are a little luckier, ranking seventh in the top 10 marriage ‘Doom Zone’.

Americans marry at a rate much higher than their counterparts, with 6.9 ceremonies taking place per 1,000 people. However, divorce rates at 2.5 per 1,000 make the nation a part of the marriage ‘doom zone’.

Southern European countries are luckier and least likely to divorce.

Ireland takes the top spot as the country where marriages are most likely to survive. The country has the lowest divorce rate at 0.6 per 1,000. According to the study, while this may be due to Irish couples being best at finding soulmates, the result may also be down to Ireland's strict divorce law. The law demands proof couples have lived apart for at least four of the previous five years before divorcing.
