Cohabitation may increase odds of divorce

Cohabitation, which is common across Oklahoma and the United States, is generally considered to be a positive living arrangement by couples who are not ready to marry. However, a study produced in the Journal of Family and Marriage suggests that cohabitation may lead to higher divorce rates. The study looked at data gathered from women up to the age of 44 and analyzed divorce rates from 1970 to 2015 for first-time marriages.

Economic prosperity could boost risk of divorce

According to a survey conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, attorneys are likely to have fewer clients seeking a divorce when the economy isn't doing so well. However, when the economy strengthens, some couples in Oklahoma may be more likely to have marital troubles lead to divorce. This also appears to be true with marriages where there is a noticeable discrepancy with earnings or credit health. About 35 percent of 2,000 adults surveyed by a leading bank holding company cited money matters as the main problem with their spouse.
