Millions of couples marry each year, just as many couples file for divorce. The trend seems to be growing.I think one reason why people divorce is unanticipated issues of debt.So guys what do you think the reasons why people divorce?

I think some couples get tied up in everyday life and don't work at their marriage. Marriage is work...but they don't tell you that in the beganning of the relationship when the sparks are flying and everything is good. People change over time so you have to get to know your partner and in turn they have to be willing to grow with you. I think the problem is that people don't try. They give up and get divorced, find someone else and when the sparks are done flying...they do it all over again. Once a couple realizes this, they take the initiave to make their relationship work and grow together.

I agree that debt does play a huge part. We can never see the future and sometimes the cost of living goes up, then mortgage payments are on the up, this can cause stress which sometimes does lead to divorce. I also think that marriage isn't always a serious as it once was, there are way to many married people having affairs. I got divorced as my wife had an affair, but i only married her due to the fact that she was pregnant, im old fashioned and thought id do what was right. Again this is another way of divorce, if there is no love really there then don't do it for the children, it just makes things harder as time goes on.

In the west, I think your reason is true, but other cultures and countries reasons for divorce vary. Some divroce for unfaithfulness, disrespect, or older man prefering younger girls. It so many that it so hard to make it one reason.

A good majority of divorces are because of financial issues and infidelity. I do agree about those facts since those topics are the cause of most arguments. Another thing I think is the cause to more divorces is that a lot of young people just rush into marriage without thinking about the long term and just don't want to work on the issues when they come up. Because the fact that divorce is there, people think less of marriage and when it gets a little hard and scary, they bail out of it like a sinking ship. If divorce was never created I think people would be a little more wiser when picking someone to marry and a little more cautious about it.

i think marrige is over rated. I got married when I was 23. I regret it. Not that I don't love that person. I just think it's too binding. What if you change your mind? I shouldn't have to give you half of everything i have because it didn't work out you know. I also think it holds you back in life. Like if I were single I could run off to Paris for a week or spend all my money on clothes and it wouldn't affect anyone but me.

They always say that before you get married, you must know that person very well. But even if you known that person for so long, the only thing to discover his attitude, principles and goals in life is to be with him in one roof. Having the length of time to be with him/ her only for you to realize if he's worthy to be loved and cared for. At the same time, you will discover other things that you haven't seen when you're still steady or in a relationship. Until such time, that this person is not the person whom you want to be with or to grow old with. One of the major problems in filling a divorce is having financial problems, second is when the man of the house doesn't perform his duty as the head while the mother is the light of the family, third is when these two people doesn't jived even in their personal point views and principles in having a family and how to raise a family as well.
