Filing for divorce in the United States has become more common than ever. This is the case for many reasons, but it does not mean that all couples will inevitably file for a divorce.

All couples do go through difficult times in their marriage, however. While previous generations had limited options and tended to stay in their relationship regardless of how they felt about their spouse, couples today feel more empowered to seek independence and happiness for themselves. The following are some of the most common reasons why divorces occur.

Lack of intimacy

Having a lack of intimacy in a relationship tends to mean that both couples feel dissatisfied in their relationship. Everyone wants to have a companionship that feels romantic and intimate. Usually, the lack of intimacy is a sign that there are deeper issues in the relationship, namely resentment, anger, or hostility.

Lack of compatibility

The initial honeymoon period of a romance can mask a lot of potential compatibility issues. If you noticed early on that there were significant differences between the way that you view the world and the way that your partner does, you may have optimistically concluded that opposites attract. However, further down the line, you may recognize these differences as fundamental incompatibilities.


Financial issues in a household can trigger huge amounts of stress. This can lead to arguments about the way each spouse handles money or is contributing financially to the marriage.

If you are struggling in your marriage but you are unsure as to whether filing for a divorce is the right thing to do, you should take the time to understand the way that the law would apply to your situation.
