Is money the culprit behind most divorce cases?

Money can either bring out the best or the worst in many people. It seems that it can be the root of all evil in a divorce situation. Many Connecticut couples cite money problems as one of the main reasons their marriages erode. Recent studies have shown that financially disadvantaged couples were more apt to divorce rather than those who were more financially stable. 

Researchers also looked at the differences regarding the perception of finances between husbands and wives of various socioeconomic backgrounds. It was found that wives of couples who were in lower income brackets were less satisfied in their relationships than were their partners. In fact, women who started their marriages with higher sociodemographic risk started married life with less satisfaction and that only declined more as the years went on.

Interestingly, the husbands in these marriages -- who began their married lives with low satisfaction levels -- rebounded in satisfaction after being married from three to fives years. A survey showed that it was only those couples who were the least satisfied initially with their marriages who continued to experience a decline in marriage satisfaction as the years wore on. Findings of the study showed most financially disadvantaged couples had risky and resilient relationships which showed initial stability during what is known as the honeymoon phase. 

There may be many reasons couples divorce and finances may only be one contributing factor. Whatever those reasons are, it might be wise for a Connecticut resident facing divorce to obtain advice from an experienced lawyer. Divorce is rarely easy and having the guidance of an attorney may make the process less likely to be filled with anxiety and stress.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
