Based on research, too intimate at the beginning of a marriage is one of the causes of divorce. These include 6 other things below.
Mismatches lost love, or one of the parties lured to others, are things that are often associated with the cause of divorce.
But several studies have revealed that there are similarities in each divorced couple, which could be a predictor of their divorce.
The results of this study can even detect early on, whether the partner will last or end in divorce. Only by looking at 7 factors that caused the divorce of all couples who separated.
Here are 7 things that are often the cause of divorce, but often escape attention:
- Married at adolescence or over 32 years
Research says those who marry when adolescents (under the age of 20 years) or in their mid-30s, have a high risk of divorce. Compared to those who married in their late 20s or early 30s. This risk is very high in couples who marry when they are both teenagers.
Based on research led by Nicholas Wolfinger, a professor at the University of Utah. He found that married after passing 32 years of age, the chances of someone getting divorced increased by 5% every year.
Nicholas writes in the Institute for Family Studies, “For almost everyone, the late twenties are the best time to get married.”
Meanwhile, another study published in 2015 in the Economic Inquiry journal, revealed the tendency for divorce to increase if with a high age gap between partners.
- The husband does not have a permanent job
A 2016 study conducted at Harvard revealed that household financial problems were not the cause of divorced couples. But the biggest cause is the husband’s working condition.
The study, published in the American Sociological Review, states that husbands who do not have permanent jobs have a divorce risk of 3.3% within a year. Whereas couples with husbands who have permanent jobs only have a 2.5% risk.
Researchers in this study says the stigma that men are the main breadwinners of a family can affect the stability of the household. So if the husband does not have a permanent job, the household can be problematic.
- Dropping out of school is the cause of divorce
The possibility of divorce in couples who have higher education is 30% lower than those who do not graduate from high school.
The researcher considers that a low level of education will affect family income. Because those who do not graduate from high school tend to find it harder to find work. So that making household needs difficult to meet, and a happy marriage is difficult to achieve.
- Look down on the couple
John Gottman, a psychologist at Washington University, describes a very accurate cause of divorce. The predictor is divided into 4 things that trigger a fight, until separation. Therefore as much as possible 4, this is avoided by husband and wife:
- Look at a husband or wife as someone lower than yourself. This
