Factors That May Indicate A Marriage May End In Divorce

Orange County divorce lawyers; The Maggio Law FirmAre you planning to get married soon? Or are you already married? Can anyone predict with certainty that a couple is likely to get divorced even before they exchange their vows? In a majority of cases, the answer would be a ‘no’. However, there are some situations where one can see it coming, some signs which can predict whether a couple is likely to get divorced in the near future or not. Check out these factors that may indicate that a marriage may end in divorce.

When a woman is professionally and financially more accomplished

In 2013, a research was conducted by the University Of Chicago School Of Business, which declared that when a wife earned more as compared to her husband, the rate of divorce went up. In all likelihood, this is an outcome of a centuries old socio-cultural notion that men should be the providers for their families. When that is not the case, a man can feel less important or weaker. Your partner could feel insecure with your success when you are more accomplished than him. Can you do anything about it? Not much can be done about this. Men should understand that when their partners are more successful than them financially, they also get benefit due to that. It does not make sense to stick to ancient notions as well as cultural stereotypes.

Trouble when managing finances

If money is the troublemaker, does a couple lock horns or do they put their heads together and try to reach solutions instead of starting a blame-game? How a couple handles finances together and separately is extremely crucial. In case a couple keeps fighting rather than working together for managing their finances properly, it could also become a major contributor to a divorce. A divorce is also likely when one of the partners bring in more debts and has a past record of nonpayment of debts. In case a partner is financially not responsible, the couple should consult a therapy and a financial adviser.

Parents had a divorce too

There are many studies that point out that when the parents are divorced; one has a greater chance of getting divorced too. But, when your parents had a divorce, you should be trying to strive towards having a happy marriage and learn lessons from what went wrong in your parent’s marriage. Such lessons can then be used for resolving conflicts in your relationship or marriage.
