The Most Frequent Cause of Divorce
The following causes below are the most frequent causes of divorce based on statistical data and most popular reasons cited by those seeking a divorce. It is important to note that most of these causes lead to communication problems and distancing of partners which ultimately decreases the value of the marriage and many times ends in divorce. 1.) Financial- Contrary to public belief, this is in fact the most common cause of divorce. Many couples fail to openly discuss financial situations before marriage such as individual debt, spending habits, salary information, etc. This can lead to one partner thinking the couple is living within their means, while the other partner sees the couple as financially spinning out of control. Also many couples fail to establish feelings of who should do the bread-winning or if the task should be split. A common situation is one from a wife who was socialized to believe the husband is the breadwinner, while the husband beliefs they should share financial responsibilities. It is crucial to form prenuptial agreements prior to marriage because it can protect either partner against financial ruin should the relationship fail. more
