What are the Most Common Causes of Divorce?

Apr 04, 2014

Many things can cause a divorce from marrying someone too young to financial issues. However, there are some specific things that have become more common causes of divorce than others. Here are the three most common causes of divorce.

Poor Communication

Couples have to be able to communicate about everything from money to sex. Without good communication the relationship is destined to fail.

Many couples will say it was a financial reason that caused their divorce or a sexual reason. However, infidelity, financial issues and many other causes of divorce really come down to communications.

Without good communication, a couple may be spending money without their partner knowing, they may not be fulfilled emotionally and many other issues can stem from bad communication. However, with good communications, all the areas of the marriage can be taken care of or at least open for discussion.


Marriage takes work, but the movies and TV shows don't show this often enough. There's no real "fairy tale" ending once you're married. Laziness may be one of the most common reasons a couple suffers other issues, which they cite as the reason for the divorce. Couples must be willing to work at it and not just become comfortable with each other.

Unrealistic Expectations

Often, unrealistic expectations can lead to a divorce. One partner may expect something that isn't going to happen for one reason or another. Women may expect the man to change after the wedding day, while the many may expect certain things, as well. Realistic expectations are important and can help a couple understand each other better.

Even the second two reasons for divorce can fall under the communication category. These are the main causes of divorce in the United States today. Yes, finances and infidelity are cited more often, but both fall under communication, laziness and unrealistic expectations.
