Top 10 Reasons People Get Divorced

Why do couples end up speaking with a divorce attorney? Salem, MA law firm MacLachlan & Allen LLP offers the top 10 reasons that lead couples to divorce:

1. Trust issues: All relationships are built on trust, and marriage is no exception.

2. Finances: Most couples argue over money, but it is how they handle these disputes that may test their union.

3. Infidelity: Few wounds cut as deep or leave such lasting scars.

4. Lack of communication: When spouses will not or cannot talk to each other, they often end up talking to a divorce attorney.

5. Jealousy: Whether of the financial or romantic variety, the green-eyed monster has ruined many a marriage.

6. Abuse: Illegal and unacceptable by any standard, physical and verbal abuse are grounds for immediate divorce.

7. Addiction issues: An increasingly common reason to call a divorce attorney, substance abuse can wreak havoc on a relationship and a family.

8. Growing apart: Whether they fall out of love or simply change, some couples split up because they no longer connect like they once did.

9. Parenting: Many couples argue about how to raise their kids, but when disagreements turn nasty, divorce papers could be forthcoming.

10. Married too soon: It might work in the movies, but when couples rush in, they often rush out!
