High-stress jobs can have an impact on a marriage

At some point during their marriage, Georgia couple may decide that a divorce is inevitable. In some cases, a spouse's career or job could become part of the problem, especially if the work is stressful and has a direct impact on the marriage itself. However, those working in certain career paths are more likely to get a divorce by the time they reach the age of 30.

A career website found that, according to census data, military service members had the highest rates of divorce by the age of 30. Within this career, first-line enlisted military supervisors had a divorce rate of 30 percent, the highest within this particular career path. Logisticians, mechanics and military-enlisted tactical operations and air weapons had the next highest rates of divorce by the age of 30.

There are several factors that could be reasons that the divorce rate among military service members is so high. Mental health, for example, is a big one, as an estimated 20 percent of Afghanistan and Iraq veterans have reported that they suffer from anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder or other mental illnesses. Military service members are also more likely to spend large amounts of time on deployment. Persistent danger and money troubles can also play a part in causing a marriage to fail.

Work-related stress, money problems and incompatibilities that arise later on can cause a marriage to dissolve. In any case, the end of a marriage can be a complex event with a variety of legal issues to consider. Family law attorneys can often assist clients in negotiating an accord that covers property division and other applicable matters.
