UK Divorce and Marriage Visual Analysis

Using publicly available data from ONS I analysed interesting trends the number of marriages and divorces in the past century.  These are some of the more interesting trends I found from analysing UK marriage and divorce data. All graphs are created in R and Plot.ly.

If you would like to see the data yourself I have uploaded it to Kaggle and have made a kernel showing my code for these graphs here:
