Top reasons why women seek to end their marriages

Women in California and throughout the country are more likely to initiate a divorce compared to their husbands. According to research from the American Sociological Association, there are several reasons why this is this case. One key one is that a woman's role in the business world is evolving faster than a woman's role in the home. This means that women are more likely than their spouses to both work full-time and do the majority of the household chores.

Women today are also less likely to accept poor behavior from a spouse than they would have in past generations. Therefore, if a spouse is not faithful, is emotionally abusive or is controlling in any way, it could mean that the marriage will not work out. Research has shown that this can be true in both heterosexual and same-sex relationships.

Women may be likely to end their marriages if a spouse is unable to be emotionally available. Alternatively, a man may be less likely to end a marriage if his spouse is a main source of emotional comfort and support. Generally speaking, men are less likely than women to open up to their friends or colleagues when they need to process their feelings. In some cases, they may be unable to communicate adequately with their wives, which can cause problems in a relationship.

Individuals who go through a divorce may experience a variety of emotions such as anxiety, fear or relief. However, experienced family law attorneys will advise their clients to not let those emotions cloud their judgment when they are negotiating a settlement agreement.
