The Top 5 Reasons Couples get Divorced
I am often asked the question, “What is the main reason that couples divorce?” Well, here is the simple, yet complicated, answer:
I have exclusively practiced in the matrimonial and family law field for 15 years and I would argue that in my experience, these are the top 5 reasons why couples get divorced. While the reasons may seem broad and simple on their face, they are just some of the many factors, reasons and issues that arise in marriages that can and do lead to divorce. If you are contemplating divorce, seek professional help and guidance through licensed therapists and attorneys in this field.
