Common Reasons People Divorce
More often than not, these are the most common reasons couples cite for the breakdown of their marriage.
Lack of commitment
More specifically, one or both spouses are disinterested in trying to resolve the issues they’re facing. Whether or not they find common ground doesn’t really matter to them, nor do they want to improve marriage conditions.
You may have been surprised to see infidelity miss the top spot in the Forbes survey. But that doesn’t take away from the fact that many failed marriages end because of adultery. When a spouse cheats on you, you can’t imagine anything worse happening. And the emotions and feelings of betrayal that come with it are almost too much to overcome.
What many families don’t realize is that domestic violence isn’t just physical. It can include yelling, intimidation, manipulation, physical harm, stealing, ignoring boundaries, gaslighting, and threats.
Lack of communication
One of the more common reasons people divorce is that they don’t talk anymore. This can happen even when nothing appears to be wrong. They simply lose interest and stop sharing with the other person. Lack of communication can also rear its ugly head when it comes to money, intimacy, misplaced expectations, etc.
In other words, they can’t get along. Some states call this incompatibility or an irremediable and irretrievable breakdown of the marriage relationship, and there’s no hope for reconciliation.
This reason can take many forms. One spouse could be a gambler. Another could be hiding money, assets, debt, and income. Even when they come clean or are caught, getting back to a place where there’s trust can be difficult.
