Research shows less divorces are caused by cheating
Infidelity causes less divorces compared to other factors, according to a study by the United Kingdom research institute Co-operative Legal Services.
The researchers studied more than 5 million U.K. divorce cases beginning in the 1970s. The results implied that people today are half as likely to say that cheating caused their marriage to fail than in the early 70s.
According to the research, 29% of divorces in the 70’s were caused by infidelity, while today only 15% would attribute their doomed marriage to their partner’s having an affair.
Couples are more likely to break up from arguments, citing unreasonable behavior as the cause of their falling out.
