Some occupations see higher rates of divorce

Regardless of who you are and how strong your marriage may have been, you may wind up facing divorce at some point. The reasons for marriage dissolution can vary significantly from couple-to-couple, but most of these divorcing couples wind up facing the same legal issues. These issues can include property division, child custody, child support and alimony. Although divorce can be difficult if not impossible to predict, some experts think that there are certain aspects in one's life that can increase the risk for divorce.

One of those factors is one's occupation. One study found that the top 10 jobs with the highest divorce rates can increase the risk of marriage dissolution for differing reasons. For example, dancers and choreographers, which have the highest rate of divorce, may have an increased risk due to the intimacy amongst co-workers, which can lead to infidelity. Those who work on an assembly line, which came in at number five, on the other hand, may have an increased risk of divorce due to the psychological disconnect they may suffer on account of their isolated and monotonous work.

But there are other reasons for increased rates of divorce amongst these professions. Nurses may have an increased risk due to their long hours and extreme stress, whereas entertainers see more divorces due to the fact that they oftentimes have to spend long periods of time away from their spouses.

Although the study's findings are quite interesting, the truth of the matter is that no one is immune from the risk of divorce, regardless of his or her occupation. What is important is that, should the time come, individuals who confront divorce are prepared to legally protect themselves and their children. Depending on the circumstances at hand, there may be certain legal steps one can take to further his or her interests, which is why it is often wise to discuss these matters with a qualified family law professional.
