Why Do People Get Divorced?


No one looks to get divorced because they’ve just had a bad day or are bored. Couples thinking about divorce are despairing. Divorce is an action of last resort.

Many people come to divorce after years, even decades, of bearing their situations. Overall, in spite of all the social, economic and inherent incentives to remain married, one or both people are up against something that supersedes all of that. The scales have tipped. Usually the relationship has turned toxic so as to erode its own integrity.

In this excellent blog posting, Rachel Alexander talks about the various reasons people choose to get divorced.

  • Toxicity

  • Loneliness

  • Infidelity

  • Financial Challenges

  • Loss of Authenticity

  • Unattended Problems
