According to a new study, there are 7 factors that are responsible for the majority of divorces of parents of young children. They include addictions, lack of commitment, conflicting interests, communication gap, intimacy issues, stress and struggles of parenthood.
The study also claims that poverty, illiteracy and unemployment are also other factors that may lead to separation of couples. The research involved more than 400 couples who were asked several questions that analyse their satisfaction and sexual joy in the marriage.
All the couples who were interviewed were parents of small kids. The age group of the participants was around 30-32 years.
Most of the couples have already separated while some of them are planning to separate soon due to the above mentioned factors at the time of the study.
When researchers compared the overall quality of the marriage and satisfaction of couples who have separated and those who are still together, they understood that certain strong factors did play a role in dividing couples.
This study is a wakeup call for most of the couples who are still struggling to keep their marriage alive. Researchers say that factors like addictions, lack of commitment, conflicting interests, communication gap, intimacy issues, stress and struggles of parenthood are enemies for any marriage and it is advisable to work on those areas if the bond has to stay alive at least for the sake of the kids.
