Factors that increase the possibility of divorce

On Behalf of | Sep 4, 2022 | Divorce

Statisticians generally enjoy examining the habits of people and making predictions based on them. Some statisticians have investigated predictors that indicate a married couple is likely to get divorced. There are a few important factors that predict divorce from a statistical standpoint, in Texas and across the country. 

Financial factors 

People who spend more than $20,000 on a wedding are said to have a greater chance of getting divorced. This is because less expensive weddings usually suggest financially savvier choices, which typically make for more stable marriages. On the other hand, individuals who make less than $25,000 a year are more likely to divorce due to the stresses that come with struggling financially. 

Child-related factors 

According to statisticians, individuals whose parents divorced are also more likely to end their marriages. However, the reasons for this are not exactly clear. But couples who have children are less inclined to get divorced, compared to childless couples, as parents usually do not want to lose out on time with the children. 

Where to best turn for help and support 

No matter what the reason for a couple’s divorce is, an experienced Texas attorney can help an individual work toward the most personally favorable settlement possible. For instance, an attorney can help a client pursue a fair resolution fair and covers all important issues. A family law attorney can also help the client to pursue a fair parenting agreement if the client shares children with the other spouse, easing the transition toward a new and brighter future.
