Age difference increases likelihood of divorce

A recent study showed age differences between spouses may predict the likelihood of getting divorced, according to an online report published in The Atlantic on November 9.

The study, which analyzed the data from more than 3,000 Americans who were recently married and divorced, revealed a 5-year age difference between couples make them 18% more likely to get divorced, while couples with even a meager 1-year gap are 3% more likely to call it quits on their marriage. On the other hand, couples born on or around the same year are more likely to stay together. It could be because couples who have wider age gaps between them might not share the same cultural reference points and interests compared to same-aged couples. Regardless of the reason, it is not uncommon for couples to realize that divorce is their best option.

Living together prior to marriage does not increase the risk of divorce, study says

A recent research study by an associate professor from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro concluded that living together before marriage does not lead to divorce, according to a Huffington Post article published on Tuesday, March 11.

After analyzing the data on married women from the National Survey of Family Growth, associate professor Arielle Kuperberg said it is not early cohabitation that increases the risk of divorce, but actually how young a couple is when they decide to get married.

Kuperberg said the result of the study is significant, as it modifies the conventional knowledge about how early cohabitation is being linked to divorce.

Filing for divorce can be difficult, but is often necessary for couples who no longer want to be together.
