Husband’s employment status may increase risk of divorce

A recent study took a look at how a husband’s employment status plays a role in a marriage. The results found that husbands who do not have a full-time job are more likely to get divorced. In fact, according to Bloomberg, a marriage is one-third more likely to end in a split if the husband is not employed. Despite the fact that money problems often result in marital strife, financial stress does not appear to be large culprit in causing divorces.

How will my divorce affect Social Security eligibility?

You are probably aware that when you reach retirement age, you are eligible to collect Social Security. The amount of benefits you receive are generally based on how much income you made while you were working. However, if you are divorced, you may be able to collect benefits based on your ex-spouse’s income if that amount is higher.

What conclusions can be drawn from divorce statistics?

While it may be tempting to look at the numbers gathered by researchers and try to predict whether your marriage will end in divorce, doing so will likely only drive you crazy. However, if you look closely, there may be a few divorce-related statistics that can provide insight into your relationship.

Some occupations may increase risk of divorce

Colorado couples may think about many factors when they consider whether or not their marriage will be successful. However, most people probably do not think about whether their job or their spouse’s job could play a role. This may be a mistake as it does appear that certain professions lead to a couple splitting up more than others, according to USA Today.
