Common reasons cited by people for divorces

92219515_S.jpgIn Missouri, many marriages end each year. When people are preparing to marry, they likely do not consider that they may end up divorcing in the future. It is important for people to understand some of the common factors that contribute to divorce so that they might work to prevent them from affecting their own marriages.

Business Insider reports that there are seven primary reasons that people list when they are asked about why their marriages ended. It is probably obvious to most people that one of the top causes of divorce is infidelity. While some couples are able to work through and move past infidelity, it may prove to be an insurmountable issue for most marriages. Drug use and drinking are also cited as common causes of divorce. A lack of commitment to the marriage can also lead to a breakup.

Couples that frequently argue may end up divorcing as well as those that simply grow apart as changes occur. Financial problems often lead to divorces. It is important for people that are planning to marry to understand everything about their partners' finances and spending habits. The age when people get married is also a contributing factor. Those who marry in their mid-30s or later or when they are very young are likelier to divorce than people that get married in their late 20s or early 30s.

No matter what leads to a divorce, people that are thinking about ending their marriages might want to discuss their situation with a professional to make sure they truly do want to go through with it. If they do, they might want to get help from experienced divorce lawyers. Attorneys might help their clients to handle their divorces with a minimum of emotional conflict while working to protect their financial and familial interests.
