Most couples in Wisconsin get married without thinking their marriage will end in divorce. However, the fact is that divorce occurs often and may even be predictable. Researchers have found that there are several factors that predict future divorces.
According to a researcher from the University of Utah, people who do not finish high school have a higher chance of getting divorced. Those who tend to withdraw in the face of conflict are also likelier to get divorced as are those who are very affectionate as newlyweds. Spouses who show contempt for their partners and those who negatively describe their relationships are likelier to divorce.
Researchers have also found that people who marry in their teens and those who marry after age 32 are both likelier to get divorced than people who marry in their late 20s. Harvard researchers have found that couples in which the husbands are employed part-time or less are also likelier to get divorced than couples in which the division of labor is equal.
Marriages end in divorces for many different reasons. Regardless of what leads to a divorce, divorcing spouses will need to settle a number of different issues during the process. Getting help from experienced family law attorneys may help people to end their marriages in a smoother fashion so that they can move forward with their lives. Attorneys may help clients to step back from the emotional conflicts that are often involved in divorces so that they can view their circumstances logically. These legal professionals might be able to negotiate full agreements that settle all of the outstanding issues. If agreements are not reachable, the attorneys may litigate the issues that are in dispute through court.
