Alcohol consumption, attractiveness may increase divorce risk

There are many factors that could contribute to individuals choosing to end their marriages. Some of these conditions are generally well known, such as having parents who divorced, but there are also other details that could have a bigger impact on relationships than some New York residents may realize. As a result, they could end up facing the potential for divorce.

One risk factor that some parties may not have considered fully relates to alcohol drinking habits. One study indicated that among couples in which one spouse was a relatively heavy consumer of alcohol and the other spouse rarely or never indulged, 45 to 55 percent of those couples ended their marriages. When drinking habits were more evenly matched, the divorce percentage dropped to 35 percent.

Another possibly surprising risk factor for divorce relates to individuals' appearances. Apparently, parties are more likely to dissolve their marriages if they scored high on scales of attractiveness. This information reportedly applies to both celebrities and non-celebrities alike, which may add some explanation to why celebrity couples often end their relationships.

Some New York residents may think of these aspects and feel that they have no impact on their lives. While this may be true for some people, there are other marital and personal issues that could potentially lead to divorce. If couples find that certain aspects of their marriages are no longer working and that their relationships are coming to an end, they may wish to find out more information on their marriage dissolution options. Speaking with experienced attorneys could prove useful to concerned parties.
