Issues that may lead to divorce in Washington and beyond

On Behalf of | May 29, 2020 | Divorce

When two people in Washington decide to get married, they undoubtedly expect their relationship to last a lifetime. While the overall divorce rate has declined in the United States in recent years, there are numerous issues that are often key factors in decisions to end a marriage. No matter what specific reasons may lead to a split in a particular case, the stronger of a support network built from the start, the less stressful proceedings might be.

Studies show that the younger spouses are when they marry, the greater the chance their marriage may end in divorce. Education level is also significant, with higher educated spouses staying married more often than those with a high school education or less. In lower-income households, marriages are also at greater risk for divorce. Such issues are common factors in many divorces; however, there is no way to know for sure whether a particular issue will or will not cause irreversible damage in a specific marital relationship. What one couple is able to rebound from may be the straw that breaks the camel’s back for another couple.

Some people believe it is best to live together with a romantic partner before getting married. But couples who cohabitate are said to file for divorce more often than those who do not. Couples who affiliate with a religious faith are less likely to end their marriages, according to recent data.

Divorce can occur after a single incident in a marriage or may be a decision that comes after months or years of problems. Either way, proceedings are often less stressful for those who rely on experienced legal representation in court. A Washington spouse considering filing for divorce is wise to begin the process by requesting a meeting with a family law attorney.
