Family law: Why do marriages end in divorce?

The high number of divorces in New Jersey and elsewhere is an indication that it takes a lot of hard work for two different individuals to combine their lives and become one. Regardless of how in love they were before they got married, differences will become evident sooner or later. Psychotherapists and other family law authorities say it is the manner in which couples deal with those differences that determine whether their marriages will stand the test of time.

Reportedly, there are some reasons for divorce that are more frequently cited than others. Infidelity is a primary cause of failing marriages, and in today's world, it is not only physical but also emotional affairs conducted on social media that cause marital rifts. Money problems are also the cause of many divorces, and this can even include situations in which the woman in the partnership climbs the corporate ladder faster than her husband.

Next on the list is addictions. This can include dependencies on alcohol, narcotics, prescription drugs and even sex or gambling. A sad fact is that extraordinary circumstances, such as a child's death or a dreaded disease diagnosis, tend to push people away from each other because they deal so differently with grief. Then there is the incompatibility in couples who have entirely different values, religions and other aspects that seemed irrelevant at first but became overwhelming in time.

If all efforts to overcome differences are unsuccessful, many New Jersey couples cite irreconcilable differences as their reason to file for divorce. This is a process that requires careful planning, and the most logical place to seek support and guidance is from of an experienced divorce attorney. With a skilled family law professional in his or her corner, a person will have a better chance at resolving all issues in a divorce and be prepared for a new single life.
