The Top 5 Reasons Marriages And Cohabitations End

Most of the studies focusing on divorce and the ending of relationships and cohabitations are based on qualitative research, not quantitative but a new study out of the UK overcomes the disadvantages of past research and provides a clearer insight into why live-in partnerships come to an end.

The data come from NATSAL-3, a nationally representative survey of over 15,000 UK residents ages 16-74 interviewed between 2010 and 2012. Overall, 11% of the men and 14% of the women in the sample reported they experienced the end of a live-in partnership (marital or cohabiting) in the 5 years prior to interview (2% of men’s and 3.5% of women’s ended partnerships had been with a same-sex partner).

The top five reasons marriages and cohabitations end are as follows:

Women Men
1. Grew apart – 36% Grew apart – 39%
2. Arguments – 30% Arguments – 27%
3. Lack of respect – 25% Unfaithfulness – 18%
4. Unfaithfulness – 24% Lack of respect – 17%
5. Domestic violence – 16% Different interests – 16%

  • Why Pregnant Couples Should Totally Have Sex

    For many couples, pregnancy puts a stop to sex, often driven by the stigma around pregnancy sex. A recent study found that a couple’s attitude toward pregnancy sex affected their overall sexual satisfaction, such that couples with positive attitudes were more satisfied. The study also found that negative attitudes often stem from myths or other cultural beliefs that have no basis in science. As I urged in my recent newsletter, if you’re pregnant give yourself the right to be a sexual being and if your partner is pregnant work on overcoming the harmful beliefs and make your partner feel desired
