  • I think the most common causes are money & infidelity.
  • Lack of communication over finances, and the second being infidelity.
  • Money, lack of communication, boredom, infidelity. Very few of the divorces that I hear of are due to serious situations like infidelity. They seem to always boil down to lack of communication or the couple stops nurturing their love and let it die. Divorce is too easy anymore, and way too common. My sister is on her 3rd marriage and only the first divorce was justified (he was abusive). Her second husband was a great man, father, and husband. Unfortunately whatever went wrong, was mostly on my sisters end. I don't know much about her new husband yet, but it now seems like a game to guess how long it'll last... how unfortunate. You only get out of your marriage, what you put into it.
  • My guess would be over money problems
  • Farting in front of relatives.
  • Finances and cheating.
  • Lack of communication and an unwillingness to compromise, I feel, is the heart of separations. I know being unfaithful is probably going to get a lot of mention. When people stray from a marriage for flings, I feel that there is a strain in the closeness/intimacy that couple feel for each other. If they would talk openly with one another about what bothers them, what attracts them to their mate, they can gain an understanding about their relationship. There will have to be a compromise here and there to satisfy both people. If you are truly interested in what your spouse wants emotionally, physically, spiritually- then you should COMMUNICATE. Its been the one thing in my marriage that my wife and I work at. It keeps us being best friends. (and that's very important.)
  • It all comes down to TRUST!!!!
  • Falling out of love with each other, and then communication shutting down. That leads to other problems....like abuse, infidelity, dishonesty....
  • Marriage.
  • Wives that get fat and don't give oral.
  • communication and sex
  • Finances. Either lack of or abundance of.
  • money and different values...
  • Both parties must continue to grow together, and not apart. When they grow apart and do not mend the holes then problems continue.
  • Money issues are one main cause
  • Men finding other women. That is very common.
  • Rushing into things because 'That's the way they should be.'. Stupid preset lifestyles. Make you own life, don't follow a standard!
  • Cheating or money issues they seem to be the two biggest problems that cause divorce
  • marriage
  • Why, marriage of course!
  • unpreparedness and lack of good communications..
  • Lack of good communication, and false expectations placed upon one another in the beginning of the relationship/marriage.
  • when we age we change, and the person you married at twenty is not the same person at thirty. i believe all these changes can bring on arguments over the way finances are handled or children are raised. many people who are dissatisfied with their spouse begin to lie and cheat. all of this brings about the end of a marriage.
  • Getting married in the first place!
  • Getting married for the wrong reasons.
  • I think the biggest cause is that we tend to look outside ourselves for the source of our happiness. We get married thinking that will make us happy, and when it doesn't (as inevitably is the case!), we think the marriage is the CAUSE of our unhappiness. Relationships are hard, even when both people are healthy and stable. To add on the expectation that a relationship should make you whole is just too much. It's also upside down: you should bring your wholeness TO the relationship, not expect to get it FROM the relationship. That's what allows love to spin into a positive-feedback loop, rather than a downward spiral of unfulfilled expectations.
  • Forgetting you are on the same team / same side. Forgetting the other person loves you and start treating them with contempt, distrust, etc.
  • As in my case, my wife not telling me until i get the friggen papers.
  • Getting married for the wrong reasons, getting married way too soon, boredom, and communication problems.
  • When we expect our partner to make us happy. We think that once we get married that our spouse will make our dreams come true and fill any voids that are there.
  • What the books will tell u is non communication, but u can do all the right things and still come up short on a long lasting marriage. In my case my wife just got tired with me and saw no more potential in me and thought that I would not be a good dad. I wish she came to that conclusion before we had a child together. That's just the rumor though.

If u are one of the unfortunate statistics, u won't feel so bad for having not tried your best.

  • The # 1 reason for divorce...Marriage!
  • I may have answered this question before, but here it is again: 1. GREED 2. ITS ALL ABOUT ME 3. INFIDELITY The three most popular ingredients, needed for a divorce.
  • marriage! no marriage = no divorce.
  • realizing your differences...and not being able to put up with them anymore...that's what happened to my parents after 27 years of marriage.
  • Hi this is Jim. Most people do not know who Love is. They believe they can actually see and hold Love. FACT: No one has ever seen Love. We have only perceived him... When Truly coming to know that what has been written in 1 John 4: 8%16 "God is Love," is true, then One may be able to start to use the opportunities around them to grow more Love. (Become greater Love.). Let me ask you this question: Did you create Love? Neither did I. So how is it that if I did not create Love, how could I possibly give and take away that which I am not responsible for creating? People are listening to the world and trying to make sense of things that they see with their eyes and ears. By doing so, they believe that when someone says, "I am leaving you, I don't Love you anymore," and the world tells us, "Your Loved one just died," they believe that they have Lost Love. Not so! Now is the time for greater Love to be attained. Greater for One to become someone they can see in front of a mirror by closing their eyes. 2 Cor. 4-18: "For we do not look at the things that are seen, but at the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are temporal (temporary), but the thing that are UNSEEN ARE ETERNAL!" So here is the sum and simple fact. A carnal Love that is based upon the eyes and lust of the heart will not last. A true Love that can not be seen and based upon seeing and Loving the One standing in front of you with your eyes closed... That will last forever!!!
  • The root cause is usually boredom with each other. That's what leads to cheating, etc.
  • I think it's different for every couple, but generally most people divorce because they grow apart, or someone cheated, or they have problems with the step kids.
  • FAMILIARITY BREEDS CONTEMPT. seriously, people usually get tired of each other, once the excitement and passion goes away. Add children to the mix, and the romance really dies. Children usually add stress to a marriage and the sex life really goes out the window. some men find it all to easy to start cheating, rather than have the guts to get a divorce. instead they stay and ignore their wives and make them miserable. most people who avoid divorce do so because they dont want to lose money or leave their kids, not because they love their spouse. Sad, but true.
  • Irreconciable Differences.
  • Selfishness and not putting the interest and welfare of the other person first in your life. That goes for both parties. People think, "I'm not feeling happy. My spouse isn't fulfilling me anymore. Someone else can do it better." It's just me, me, me. The best way to have a good marriage is to be the best husband or wife is to be the best the other person wants, do for others before you do unto or for yourself. T3wo people really in love will find that they can meet ion the middle with great satisfaction. Giving is the key to a happy relationship.
  • marrying the wrong person!
  • Abuse is the most common cause of divorce. In my situation my husband physically and verbally abused me. No matter how hard I tried to work things out with him he kept pushing me away and disrespecting me. I loved my husband very much and a part of me still does but I can't be with him if he's going to continue hurting me. Abusive men usually don't change their ways. LOVE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO HURT!!!!
  • Poor communication & taking each other for granted.... Maybe lack of effort to keep the relationship alive?
  • mabe becuase alot of people (that i know) dated two years at the most (which is awesome) but then get married. and i dont think people realize how big a commitment that is. 1 or two years of dating is nothing compared to living your whole life with a person. no matter how well you think you know them at the time
  • Monotony
  • infidelity.
  • People getting married for the wrong reasons.
  • Marriage
  • money, cheating, sex, drugs/drinking
  • Marriage. It is a proven fact that 100% of divorce people were previously married.
  • Without a doubt it's financial.
  • MONEY/taxes
  • Hardness of heart.
  • Unrealistic expectations on both sides.
  • infedielity, lack of communication, lack of sex
  • playing house gets old. Specially with the younger people . a lot of them still want to screw everybody. So and so is cheating on so and so.
  • I know most of you will not agree when I say Love is not unconditional. Let me explain...a relationship needs to be based out of mutual respect and caring. When the relationship becomes one sided in terms of family, finances, love, empathy, communication, religion or any of the "Big Rocks" then it becomes open to resentment and discontent. Hence, the need for communication, caring and respect. When one partner tries to assume total control over one of the important aspects in life without consulting the other the relationship is headed for disaster. Especially if the controlling partner has lost sight of the teamworking aspect of the relationship. That is not to say you have to agree on everything, it just means that two people respect each other enough to ask their opinion and then work to some compromise regarding the issue. It is true that opposites can attract but in the end if you do not have common goals, morals, and values you will be destined for a resentful relationship. Love cannot flourish in a one sided relationship....
  • My divorce attorney who had been doing divorces for 15 years said that the Number One reason for divorce was INFIDELITY. Next came MEDDLING INLAWS.
  • Mis-trust: not sexually but emotionally. It is hard to give someone complete access to your emotional state and trust them not to mess you up. Once you can do this with confidence, and they can do the same, then the basis is there for a good marriage. That's why a long enggement is so important.
  • I think the most common reason marriages end in divorce is that people quit putting their spouse first in their lives. It's too easy to believe that you "deserve" something because of things you've done for your spouse. Marriage is never 50/50 or 100/100. There are times when one partner has to give more than the other (illness, job loss, family illness). If you're not in it to make the other happy in the marriage it will never work.
  • Maturity
  • lack of communication
  • I think maybe one spouse not keeping the other spouse "interested". The relationship becomes "boring" and "stagnant", thus, an outside relationship developes. Money was never an issue in my divorces (3).
  • Lack of commitment. When people are committed, they find ways to resolve disagreements.
  • Marriage.
  • no compromise, no loyalty and many outside influences are good reasons. I also put adultery right up there inn thatepople are never satisfied and although they have it good at home, they still go out there and act badly, whoch also in my opinion should be a criminal charge
  • Most of the time i have noticed having money problems, and another one having an affair.
  • cheating on your spouse.
  • the nagging wife?
  • Lack of.......communication!
  • falling out of love
  • Incompatibility,immaturity and pride.
  • People rushing into marriage without giving enough time to see if they are truly compatible.
  • selfishness.
  • christmas. the financial stress and the stress of setting up family gatherings, seeing the in-laws again, dealing with all the pressures....
  • People are bored with each other.
  • lack of committment
  • Money trouble
  • LAWYERS!! Without them, we would all still be married! LOL
  • People change over time, it is something that happens to a lot of people. You can either chagne together or apart. If you change apart it is hard to stay with someone that you don't love. This happend to my parents i think, it is sad but it is what is best sometimes.
  • a selfish, immature, cheating husband that leaves his pregnant wife to go run around with a married woman (among others)
  • lack of emotional maturity; dishonesty
  • Money and miscommunication
  • People growing apart and having differeing paths. Many people think that they will be each othersworld but life changes and humans need outside contact. You need to work at a marriage everyday. Its like buyin a car and never servicing it or putting petrol or oil in, it will eventually run out and sit idle, then you move onto another car! But it must be work at by both partners!
