Couples divorce for several reasons

Although marriage can certainly be difficult, having a weak foundation for the marriage can make it even harder to keep a marital union together. Of course, in some situations, divorce is inevitable no matter how hard two people try to make the marriage work. Here is a rundown on some of the most common reasons for divorce in the United States, including in California.

First, some couples get divorced due to domestic violence, which can take the form of physical or emotional abuse. Other couples decide to divorce as a result of one spouse's abuse of substances, which could be drugs or alcohol. Yet another common reason for divorce, according to a recent survey, is financial trouble. This is because the stress associated with financial problems can cause immense strain on a marital union.

Other people may divorce simply because they got married at too young of an age. In addition, arguing and unresolved conflict frequently lead to the demise of marriages, as can extramarital affairs and infidelity. Finally, research shows that a lack of dedication to the other party paves the way for many divorces. In many cases, one spouse is more committed to the marital union than the other one is, a situation known as an asymmetrically committed relationship.

No matter what the reason is for a couple's divorce, the process can quickly become overwhelming both emotionally and financially. However, an attorney in California can help a spouse who is going through divorce to make educated decisions about how to handle issues like property division and child custody. The attorney's main aim is to make sure that the client's rights are protected during all stages of this type of family law proceeding.
