What is the Most Common Reason for Divorce?
Every year in the state of California, thousands of couples are making the decision to end their marriage. While every couple has unique issues and problems that can lead to this decision, there are few reasons that are quite common among most spouses who choose to divorce. One of the most common reasons for ending a marriage is poor communication in the relationship, especially when there is only one-way communication or a partner that is not being heard. This can also include when one partner is hiding something from the other.
Another common reason for divorce is a lack of trust among both spouses. A strong marriage has to built on trust. Even if trust decreases over time, it can cause serious issues in the relationship. Being deceitful about finances, what one spouse is doing when they are not home, and infidelity are all issues that can affect negatively affect trust and cause a couple to divorce.
