List Rules Songs with "divorce" in the title are fair game, but this list focuses mainly on songs about getting divorced as a subject.

Divorce songs are almost always sad, as they represent the end of a once loving marriage. This is a ranked list of all songs about divorce, as voted on by music fans like you. In today's world over half of couples that get married end up divorced, so it's not surprising that there's a lot of powerful music that touches on the subject. Some of the songs included below may have the word "divorce" in the lyrics or title, while others are only about getting divorced as a subject or theme. These songs are sung by both men and women, so you get the perspective of both the husband and the wife in these martial separation songs.

Music isn't typically categorized by the meaning of the words, so this music list is a great way to find some solid tracks that are thematically similar. Vote for the marital problems or divorce songs that you enjoy the most, and downvote ones if you think they're not worthy of being high on the list. If one of your top songs is missing, add it to the list so others can vote for it too. Many genres of music are featured below, including rock, pop, folk, metal, and more.
