According to sociologists, the relationship between couples can depend to a large extent on human behaviors, as it becomes fairly easy to predict the success or failure of a marriage.
There are many reasons that may lead to divorce, regardless of the amount of love or happiness.
1 – Get married at an early or late age
Marriage is a bond of true love that can happen anytime, anywhere. It is said that the best time to get married is when you feel completely ready to spend your life with this special person. But many research indicates that couples who marry in their teens or who marry in their mid-30s are at a higher risk of divorce than couples in their late twenties and early thirties. The risk increases in teenage couples because they lack experience and are unwilling to cope with difficulties. The chances of divorce increase with the increase in the age gap between the two partners.
2- When feelings take over the mind
Excessive expression of feelings such as holding hands, kissing, and excessive hugs can complicate the relationship at some point. Research has proven that the cause of divorce in many wives is due to a trivial situation in new marriages, while those that start with romance and understanding are happier. The reality of married life is overshadowed by romance.
3 – Scientific differences
Scientific differences can pose a threat to marriage for various reasons, as they greatly affect the psychological compatibility of spouses. Moreover, it is difficult for spouses to communicate when there is a great mix in study and education.
4 – Lack of respect for your partner
The famous psychologist John Gottman has explained certain behaviors in relationships and categorized them as the four main causes of divorce:
- Despise, disrespect, and superiority on the partner.
- Constant criticism.
- Defensive and victim role play.
- Procrastination, communication is the key to successful relationships.
Stress greatly affects not an only lifestyle but also relationships. Daily activities can influence our behavior on many levels which may play a positive or negative role in human psychology. Problems at work, personal pressure, and lifestyle changes can lead to stress between spouses. Moreover, these issues can reinforce problems such as infidelity, depression, and domestic violence that can have devastating effects on a marriage.
