4 types of couples with higher divorce odds

Looking at the odds of divorce in a vacuum can be rather misleading. After all, even if half of marriages end in divorce, that does not mean that the same level of risk applies to all marriages. Experts have identified certain types of couples who could see a higher risk based on the specific details of their own relationships.

Here are four examples of couples that may be more likely to split up:

  1. Couples with a power imbalance: These couples do not share responsibilities equally. When one person feels like he or she has no voice, the relationship becomes draining instead of enticing.
  2. Couples who ignored their own deal-breakers when they got married: For instance, one person may never want to have kids, while the other person only wants to start a family. They both said that was a deal-breaker, but then got married anyway.
  3. Couples who never talk about their finances: Stress about money is one of the leading reasons why relationships break down, and couples that do not talk about it and figure things out often run into conflicts over spending, saving and debt.
  4. Couples with endless drama: One minute, they're fighting and screaming that they hate each other. The next minute, they're back together and they can't get enough of one another. Some experts say they're "addicted to intensity." It may work for a while, but it's often doomed in the long run.

Of course, all types of couples can work and couples without red flags can head for divorce. No matter why you and your spouse are splitting up, make sure you know your legal rights when the marriage ends.
