The top reasons why most spouses divorce

On Behalf of | Feb 26, 2021 | Divorce

Although the vast majority of those in California who go through a marital breakup fully recover from the experience, it doesn’t mean the experience is an easy one. A divorce can launch any person into painful emotions, stress and an overall sense of regret. Marriages end for a myriad of reasons. The “why” behind most divorces can usually be traced back to a few common issues. Here are a few of those.


Infidelity is a big cause of divorce these days. Understandably, venturing outside of the relationship can doom a marriage. Once a partner experiences betrayal, it’s incredibly difficult to get that trust back.

Lack of intimacy

A lack of affection or passion can be a big sign that a marriage is in trouble. Without intimacy, spouses may feel disconnected, which can cause them to drift apart. In one recent study, nearly 2,400 divorcees were interviewed about their divorce. Nearly half of them cited an absence of love or intimacy as the main reason for the dissolution of their marriage.

Financial stress

Money and financial problems are major causes for marital problems. It is not uncommon for spouses to disagree about managing money or how to manage a high-debt situation, and these financial issues often lead to more arguments. Furthermore, lying about money or debt to a spouse can damage trust and damage an otherwise healthy marriage.

Divorce remains an everyday reality for thousands of California residents. Those who have questions about any aspect of divorce could benefit by speaking with a legal representative. A knowledgeable attorney can answer questions and provide much-needed guidance for those going through this stressful experience.
