Careers That Have Highest Divorce Rates

Posted on in Divorce Rate
divorce-rateIt is probably a safe bet to say that everyone who marries thinks that union will last forever. Why else would they bother? However, divorce is a fact of life, and there are a number of factors that play a part in the erosion and eventual dissolution of a marriage. Stress on a marriage comes from many sources, and a person’s job is among them.

Are You Working Toward a Divorce?

It has become known that workers in some industries experience divorce at higher rates than those in others. Whether it is the long hours, required travel or stress of the job that carries over to the homelife, the career someone chooses could impact the length of their marriage. Here’s a partial list of those lines of work that tend to experience higher than normal divorce rates.

The duties and responsibilities of first-line enlisted military supervisors place an unusual strain on a marriage. The added stress of deployment often adds to the unusually high rate of divorce among those in these roles.

Although a career in supply chain logistics comes with a pretty nice salary, it also includes long hours, a heavy workload and extra stress. Occasional overtime does not help.

Auto technicians and mechanics work long, hard hours poking around the underside of vehicles. Coming home tired, dirty and achy usually does not put one in the mood for family fun time. Evening and weekend hours may add to the spouse’s frustration.

Chemical technicians spend long and irregular hours in the lab. Afterall, one cannot always predict how long a research process will take to deliver results. The required hyper-attention to job details tends to detract from the attention needed at home.

The less than glamorous life of a food prep or service worker includes dealing with rude customers, long hours and low pay. Working weekends and irregular shifts do not always help sustain a stable relationship.

Nonfarm animal caretakers provide an inordinate amount of patience, understanding, and compassion as part of the job, which can leave one emotionally drained by the time they get home. This may leave very little of those virtues for those at home.
