There are three things that are said to cause divorce among younger couples. These things are money, sex and time. In this day and age, many of these couples bring their individual debts, into the marriage. This causes friction right from the start because it usually affects the overall financial situation.
Sex. The one thing thought to bring couples closer is often the one thing that tears them apart. Whether it is the lack of it, incompatibility in that area or infidelity, sex-related issues are the cause of a high percentage of divorce, among couples of all age groups.
Many marriages fail because of the need to better prioritize time. When one person in a relationship feels they must handle all of the bill paying, household tasks, etc., they can quickly start to resent it.
Unfortunately, because of the overwhelming debts some couples face, there are instances where either the husband or wife must work long hours. When this happens that person doesn’t have much choice when it comes to prioritizing.
Domestic violence is on the rise. Sadly, it accounts for a large number of divorces, every year. Those who suffer from this type of abuse, either physical or verbal, need to remember that their health and safety is more important than saving a troubled marriage.
Counseling can help, of course. But, in cases where it won’t it is better to end the relationship.
