Americans divorce for a wide array of reasons

Marriage is difficult for many couples in North Carolina. Sometimes, nuptials fall apart at the seams and result in divorce. In 2017, approximately 800,000 divorces took place in the United States. Statistics show that couples divorce for specific reasons. The National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI) conducted research regarding the main reasons Americans end their marriages.

Domestic violence constitutes one important reason couples get divorced. Physical harm and verbal abuse are both viable reasons to separate. Whether the abuse is physical or emotional, any type of threat tends to destroy a marriage. Although anger management classes may help some spouses, others continue to play abusive roles that lead to an eventual divorce. Substance abuse is another reason for splitting. Whether the culprit is liquor, beer or harder drugs, any type of substance abuse can cause a spouse to become irresponsible or violent.

Other marriages suffer from constant financial concerns. A lack of funds needed to pay the mortgage, buy groceries or pay utility bills may cause anxiety and stress. Couples experiencing severe financial difficulties often get divorced. Sometimes, divorce makes their financial circumstances even worse, especially if the couple has children.

Another reason is that some people get married before they have opportunities to experience life as single individuals. Getting married at a young age may result in divorce. Frequent arguing, infidelity and the inability to make serious commitments may also result in divorce.

The stress levels experienced during divorce are high enough without having to worry about how to raise or support a child. When child custody and child support become issues, a couple may need to consult with a family law attorney. Consulting with a divorce lawyer could help smooth out any rough edges.
