The attorneys at the firm have recently reviewed a study that was covered in an article in the Kansas City Star that indicates that money-related disputes are a leading cause of divorce in the United States and they would like to bring awareness to this issue and comment on this problem.

The San Diego divorce attorneys at the Men’s Legal Center have been representing husbands and fathers in several different California family law matters for several years, and the firm handles issues that include divorce, spousal support, property division, child support, child custody, military divorces and high-asset divorce cases. The attorneys at the firm have recently reviewed a study detailed in an article in the Kansas City Star published July 12, 2013, concerning that money-related disputes between spouses and the likelihood that these disputes lead to divorce. They would like the people in the area to become aware of the prevalence of this problem.

The study entitled, “Examining the Relationship between Financial Issues and Divorce,” was published in the Family Relations Journal. It was completed by researchers at Kansas State University and Texas Tech University. The researchers analyzed data from 4,500 married couples that was included in a publication known as the National Survey of Families and Households.

The study found that repeated arguments regarding money and intimacy were the leading causes of marital stress and divorce among women. Financial disputes were the only type of repetitive argument that tended to lead men to consider and ultimately to pursue divorce. The study further found that financial disputes indicated a higher likelihood of divorce regardless of the socioeconomic status of the couple that ultimately decided to end their marriage.

“Money disputes have always been a big problem in marriages and they have always led to heated arguments which over time can wear a couple down and lead them to the decision to end their marriage,” stated Craig Candelore, the founding attorney at the Men’s Legal Center. “People who are experiencing these types of ongoing arguments should work to correct the problem or they will need to prepare themselves for the difficult process of divorce,” added Candelore.
