As part of a new divorce law that entered into force on April 1, parents with children under the age of 18 who want to end their marriage must take a 30-minute online course designed to help them and their children adapt as smoothly as possible to their new situation.There is also a new three-month reflection period before a divorce can be finalized.With almost half of all marriages ending in divorce in Denmark, the course has been designed as an aid to improve communication and avoid some of the most common pitfalls that can arise when a family breaks up.In 2018, the Scandinavian country registered 15,000 divorces, or 46.5 percent of marriages recorded last year, according to Statistics Denmark.There has meanwhile been little discussion about the fact that more than half of children in Denmark -- 54 percent -- are born out of wedlock, and for those parents who separate there is no mandatory course.
