Job loss can lead to divorce

If you lose your job, you may find yourself looking at more than just trouble paying your bills.

You could actually find yourself facing the end of your marriage.

The unfortuante reality is, studies have found that losing a job increases the odds of divorce.

One such study looked at men who did not have a job, for instance, and discovered that they had greater odds of asking for divorce and of having their partners file for divorce.

It seemed that, no matter who initiated it, divorce became more common for the unemployed.

Why is this? There are many reasons, including:

  • The stress that job loss puts on a couple
  • The financial stress of losing an income
  • The instability caused by unemployment
  • Issues with responsibilities within the family
  • General marital dissatisfaction that becomes clearer after job loss
  • The lack of security that a couple has when money problems arise

In short, losing a job can cause a lot of financial issues, especially for those who do not have enough money saved up to make ends meet. This pressure can force people apart and eventually end a marriage, especially when the stress lasts for a long time and neither person knows how they are going to get out of the situation.

If you do find yourself looking at an upcoming divorce, make sure you are well aware of all of the legal rights that you have. You need to know how to divide the assets that you have for the future, how to set yourself up financially as well as possible and how to split up time with the children.
