A recent study conducted in the US showed some of the most common reasons for divorce.
You’re probably not surprised that this is one of the top causes of divorce, accounting for almost one third of US divorces. Other surveys showed that failed marriages were highly likely to have one or both of the partners committing adultery.
Breakdown in Communication
Spouses can grow apart, particularly if they are not spending much time together. This can result in them not speaking much or not making the effort to communicate with their partner; and makes it extremely difficult to sustain a happy and functional relationship.
This abuse can be emotional, psychological or physical. One of the spouses may be negative or abusive towards the other spouse or their children. This can happen on a consistent basis.
This is another major cause of divorce. A lack of money in a marriage can cause serious arguments and differences in opinion. For example, one spouse may think that the money is better spent on different things. In addition to this, large debts can further strain a marriage.
Some couples grow disinterested with each other and become distant. There are usually few hard feelings towards each other, as long as the feeling is mutual.
Religious and Cultural Differences
Spouses may not agree with each other’s religious standpoints or local customs. This may impact on how each spouse believes their children should be brought up.
Bringing up Children
Anyone who is a parent knows that bringing up your own children is no walk in the park. Some people do not take to parenthood easily, and this can put pressure on the marriage. Additionally, each parent may have different ideas on how the child should be brought up or punished for bad behaviour.
Addiction is very rarely a good thing. This can be alcohol, drug or gambling addiction, or addiction to something else. Addiction can inhibit a person’s ability to properly function and run a household, which can put strain on a marriage.
Each person in a couple having different expectations and priorities
Trauma or other experiences can really change someone’s priorities. This may make it difficult for the spouses to live together. A fairly frequent problem is that each person in a couple expects completely different things out of the marriage.
