What Are The Top Reasons For Divorce?

Certificate of Divorce sitting on table with pen.When a couple feels they need to get a divorce, often our team finds out that it is not black and white, with one simple, straightforward reason. Usually, we find that the cause is gray, and we often find more than one reason the marriage failed.

Studies and surveys have shown that marriages fail for a variety of reasons, and here is what we often see from our clients as to why they are seeking a divorce:

  • Marital infidelity – suspected or proven
  • Complex financial landscapes that are riddled with debt and no transparency
  • Abuse – physical or verbal
  • Constant arguing and verbal fighting – the home is highly emotionally charged 24/7
  • Marital issues that are not willing to be worked on or improved
  • Partners do not feel they are in an equally balanced relationship
  • Marrying too young or becoming pregnant
  • Religious differences
  • Addictions of any kind or drug abuse
  • Lack of physical intimacy
  • Feeling like you are roommates instead of helpmates
  • Inability to communicate
  • Chronic health issues with either spouse or children
  • The inability to balance work and home life
  • Family history of divorce

While all divorced couples have different reasons for splitting, how you divorce is important to your family’s longevity after a separation agreement has been finalized.
