COUPLES who want to stay together after their honeymoon should avoid the Maldives, and instead opt for Thailand or Cancun.
New data reveals 20 per cent of couples who got divorced chose the luxurious Maldives for their honeymoon.
The study, conducted by Compare.bet asked 3,100 people who were either divorced or separated, where they chose to go on holiday after their wedding.
The Maldives topped the list with 620 (20 per cent) ending up divorced, followed by Marrakech in Morocco with 527 (17 per cent) split up and Bora Bora (13 per cent).
Instead, your best bet is to head to California or to Thailand – both Napa Valley and Bangkok had just one per cent of people split (31 divorced each).
Cancun in Mexico was also low, with just three per cent splitting after honeymooning at the popular holiday resort.
