Kidding aside, if certain countries can't even conduct a population census; how would it be possible to even begin to determine the answer in a world with over 6 billion people? Based on US statistics alone, 40% of marriages end in divorce and there is no way to even deternine the number of non marital breakups. Even if we could establish this information, there's no way to tell if a failed marriage or relationship always results in one or both persons ending up with a broken heart. It's a beautiful question that you have asked; however, is one that cannot be answered.
