Couples Expecting Divorce
Data published following a recent study has suggested that a number of newlyweds and recently engaged people, expect their relationship to end in divorce.
According to the findings of the recent survey, 21 percent of newlyweds and recently engaged couples who participated stated that they expected their relationship to end in divorce, with 44 percent of these couples stating that they believe financial concerns will play a part in the breakdown of the relationship.
Of those couples who believe the relationship will end in divorce, 27 percent stated that feelings change, and therefore it cannot be guaranteed the relationship would last forever; and as such seven percent have stated they have signed a pre-nuptial agreement with the breakup of the relationship in mind.
Seventeen percent of those couples surveyed also stated that they deliberately keep their finances separate from their partner to make any potential split easier to manage; although 57 percent of all couples surveyed stated that they expect their marriage to last forever.
