Being out of work can raise risk of divorce

A recent research study in America has looked at how employment status can influence the decision by men and women to get a divorce, reports the Telegraph.


Researchers at Ohio State University studied data on around 3,600 couples, and found that a woman's employment status did not seem to influence the likelihood of her divorcing, or being divorced by, her partner.


For men however, the situation was very different. Men who were unemployed were not only more likely to be divorced by their wives than men who had jobs, but were also more likely to initiate a divorce themselves, even where the marriage was an otherwise happy one.
