Uncommon Reasons for a Complex Divorce

There are many factors that can lead to a divorce. It is commonly thought that almost half of all marriages end in divorce, usually because of reasons pertaining to finances or infidelity. However, there are many unusual factors that can contribute to the end of a marriage and ultimately lead to a complex divorce for Illinois couples.

A study found that individuals with long commutes have an increased risk for divorce. This could be related to stress, spending excessive amounts of time at work and having less time with the other spouse. Marriages are 6 percent more likely to end in divorce if one spouse is diagnosed with a serious illness, such as cancer or heart disease. The emotional and financial stress that often accompanies a medical problem can place a significant strain on a marriage.

As Illinois readers know, it can be difficult to maintain a healthy marriage when one spouse works extended or unusual hours. Studies also suggest that it is not uncommon for couples to end their marriage when one spouse drinks significantly more than the other. The chances of divorce increase dramatically when it is the wife who drinks excessive amounts.

When the contributing factors for a divorce are varied, it can lead to a complex divorce. Nevertheless, a couple can choose to work together with their respective legal teams to navigate the divorce process and avoid litigation. Marriages sometimes end for odd reasons, but that does not mean that individuals cannot seek future happiness by working toward an agreement that is beneficial to both parties.
