What Does Working Full Time Have to Do with a Possible Divorce Rate?

Posted on : September 3, 2018

If you are contemplating filing for divorce, there are likely many different reasons that pushed you to even consider this option and it is also possible that you’ve already had a consultation with a knowledgeable divorce attorney. You might have even tried to work things out with your spouse in the past by using a separation. A new study found that the influence of full time work for men inside a partnership could have a significant impact on whether or not the marriage stayed intact.

If you’ve been having arguments with a spouse due to lack of working, you need to speak with a lawyer as soon as possible.

The study found that men who do not work full time have a higher divorce rate. The study called ‘Money, Work and Marital Stability’ found that a lack of full time employment on behalf of a husband led to a higher risk of divorce. There are many different possible outcomes associated with a man not being able to or willing to work. Other unhelpful behaviors could be developed as a result of not being able to work or being willing to work and it is possible that wives expect husbands to work full time and could interpret that not working full time is a sign about not being a good husband.

It is also possible that men do not derive inherent fulfillment from homemaking in comparison with women. A man’s feelings about lack of competence could contribute overall to the relationship and can ultimately cause one or both of you to contemplate divorce. If you are already in discussions about divorce and are confused about various questions of how the court will interpret your individual case, you need to schedule a consultation with an experienced divorce attorney immediately.

Sometimes, the pressure of one or both parties not having a full time job can add up and lead to serious problems within the marriage. A divorce lawyer can answer your questions.
