Reasons For Divorce


COMMON REASONS FOR DIVORCE




OVERVIEW

Marriage has for centuries been the bedrock upon which families have been raised. While it is well known that people get married to people of different cultures and backgrounds, the most important quality in a relationship is the ability to communicate effectively with one’s partner, and to have the humility to seek professional advice to assist if the couple are unable to communicate effectively. Unfortunately, thousands of marriages end in divorce, and it is important to try and identify what some of the reasons are for this phenomenon.


INFIDELITY

This is where either party has an illicit relationship with a third party. It has been one of the major causes for divorce for a number of years. This often leads to a breakdown in the trust relationship between the parties and causes a great deal of pain to one or both of the parties.


TIME

It is essential that parties spend quality time with one another, and often the lack of investing time with one’s partner leads to a deterioration of communication between the partners, and can sometimes ultimately lead to the total breakdown of the relationship.


LUST

Very often people get married to one another on the basis of a romantic and all strong physical attraction without investing sufficient time and effort into understanding the full personality of the other partner. Unfortunately, lust or physical attraction alone, disappears as people discover aspects to their partners personality which then causes a clash of personalities as differences begin to emerge.


FINANCIAL REASON

Money is an extremely important part of marriage. Disputes in regard to the payment of expenses in the household, as well as bearing the costs of day-to-day living, is often a cause of friction between parties which can ultimately lead to the breakdown of the marriage.


POOR COMMUNICATION

Communication is an essential aspect in a marriage. Without proper communication, misunderstandings occur frequently and conflict occurs. Without the ability to communicate or the inability to seek professional guidance in the area of communication, a marriage is likely to fail.


DIFFERENT CULTURE AND BACKGROUND

Differences in religion and culture can be a major contributing factor that leads to divorce. Issues of religion and culture should be discussed in depth prior to marriage in order to ensure that both spouses can accommodate differences in belief of their partner.
