The link between profession and divorce

The job a person has tends to have a direct impact on his or her life. For instance, it can be a source of stress that affects health and relationships. In some cases, working with members of the opposite sex increases a person’s chances of getting a divorce. Of course, this doesn’t mean that a Virginia spouse will experience a failed marriage just because of who they work with.

Using data from Statistics Denmark, researchers found that men who worked in fields such as construction where they worked with other men were less likely to get a divorce. The research also indicated that both men and women were more likely to get a divorce if they worked in fields that required more social interaction. For instance, someone who worked in a hotel was more likely to divorce than someone who worked on a farm.

Overall, individuals from both genders were more likely to end their marriages if they worked around members of the opposite sex. However, men were more likely to do so than women. Researchers say that this may be the case because of cultural norms that may make it easier for men to enter new relationships. They also cautioned that financial or other factors could play a role in a person getting a divorce.

If a couple gets a divorce, there could be many questions that need to be resolved. For instance, it might be necessary to determine how property will be divided or if a parent is allowed visitation rights to the children. An attorney may be able to answer those and other questions in an effort to create a favorable divorce settlement.
