Study points to professions that may increase risk of divorce

There have been many studies that seek to answer the question behind why some marriages do not survive. In the United States, it is estimated that approximately 20 percent of marriages will end in divorce within the first five years while 48 percent will end within 20 years. There are many factors behind why California residents may seek a divorce, though one recent study is pointing to one possible contributing reason.

Researchers note that divorce filings among those with a college education are lower than among those who have a high school diploma. In addition, those who marry at a younger age may be more likely to end a marriage than those who marry when they're older. The most recent study suggests one's profession may increase the chances of a divorce.

The Danish study showed a correlation between those who work in a higher opposite-sex ratio environment are more inclined to divorce than those who are employed in a predominately same-sex workplace. The chances for divorce were higher among men who work where they have more contact with women. Researchers suggested that those who work with opposite-sex peers may be more tempted to look for another partner.

The divorce rate was highest among those who work in the hospitality fields such as the hotel and restaurant industries. Those who work in the farming or pharmaceutical fields were least likely to divorce. The rate for women in similar situations was lower than for men, especially those with a higher education level.

While the study is interesting, it may not apply to other cultures. Furthermore, there are often many factors involved when a couple decides that a divorce is the best option. California residents who are considering a divorce have many concerns as to how it will impact their financial well-being. A knowledgeable attorney who can help arrive at a settlement that will best serve their needs now and in the future.
