BuzzFeed commissioned YouGov and its International Omnibus service to survey over 20,000 people in 20 countries to measure opposition to same-sex marriage. (YouGov chose the countries where the survey would be carried out.) BuzzFeed compared these figures to divorce rates in the 18 countries with recent figures available.

2. More than 80% of Russians oppose same-sex marriage, in a country where there were approximately 51 divorces for every 100 marriages in 2011.
