Some jobs might make divorce more likely

For Florida couples, the likelihood of divorce may be dependent, to an extent, on where they work. Research indicates that people who work with many others of the opposite sex might be more likely to divorce. A 2015 study published in the Royal Society Open Science journal found that men who lived in communities that were dominated by women were more likely to have shorter relationships.

In another effort, Stockholm University researchers reviewed data from Statistics Denmark, looking for links between who people work with and divorce. Statistics Denmark is a government agency that collects demographic data. It was established in 1945 and has information about people born in Denmark since then. The researchers filtered the data for men and women who married someone of the opposite sex from 1981 to 2002, who had a job during that time and who got divorced. They ended up with a sample of 113,252 women and 102,453 men.

The industry sectors that had the highest risk of divorce were also the ones that required frequent social interaction, such as restaurants and hotels. The industries with the lowest risk of divorce were farming and libraries. The connections existed for both men and women, but men who worked with many women were more likely to divorce than women who worked with many men.

Individuals who are approaching or going through a divorce might want to meet with a lawyer. A lawyer with experience in these types of matters might be able to help in a divorce case by drafting and filing a petition to initiate the process or by negotiating the division of assets with the other party.
