MyDivorcePapers.com reviewed new statistical findings regarding income to see how it might be affecting the high divorce rate. Also drawing on outside research, online divorce forms service MyDivorcePapers.com gathered information showing that lower income of husbands versus wives may be a causal factor for divorce.
Among MyDivorcePapers.com’s cases by the end of April report, average annual income for husbands was $37,563.13, while the average annual income for wives was $46,851.05. That is a difference of almost $10,000. At the same time, the women were the ones to file for divorce more often, at a rate of 63.86%, compared to the 36.14% filed by men.
In the article, “Income & Divorce Rates,” Beverly Bird cites that “53 percent of spouses reported ‘adequate’ income as being an important factor in a satisfactory marriage.” The article also discusses how the rise in women’s education and income throughout the last few decades have lowered divorce rates. However, it does not take into account the possible trend of men’s income lowering simultaneously, which can cause financial strain and lead to divorce.
Researchers at MyDivorcePapers.com therefore speculate that there is a correlation between men’s lower income and the high divorce rate, evidenced by the higher percentage of women filing for divorce from their husbands compared to the percentage of husbands filing for divorce from their wives. One influence for this rate difference could be the husband’s lower income compared to the wife’s rising income.
