Emphasis on looks, money could increase divorce chances

Several factors could impact whether a marriage thrives or comes to an end. While most California residents certainly want to think that their future or current marriages will allow them to live happily ever after, they may also have their doubts. Some factors could possibly indicate that a marriage could be more likely to face divorce.

If a spouse or partner displays a considerable emphasis on how important physical appearance and money are, it could be a red flag. Certainly, attraction and money are important in relationships, but those aspects can also ebb and flow. Therefore, if a partner does feel that these superficial factors are the most valuable aspects of a relationship, it may not set the marriage up for success. 

On the topic of money, a woman getting a new job or a promotion could also put a marriage on the rocks. One study indicated that when wives made less than their husbands or did not have a job when first married and then later started making more than their spouses, they became more likely to divorce. This likelihood did not apply in the reverse situations where men made less than their wives then later gained a new job or promotion.

Anyone who is married could find their relationships becoming less happy and less fulfilling than they had hoped. As a result, divorce could cross their minds. If California residents believe that it is time for their marriages to come to an end, they may want to determine what steps they need to take in order to move forward.
