Infidelity, contempt may be leading causes of California divorce

Numerous factors can play into whether a marital relationship could come to an end. Even though many California residents may begin their marriages thinking that the relationships will stand the test of time, many issues may seemingly come out of nowhere. Studies show that there are many common aspects that could result in married individuals turning toward divorce.

When it comes to the most common reasons for parties ending their relationships, infidelity, abuse and drug use come in at the highest rankings. This information may come as a surprise to few as these issues can cause considerable and often insurmountable difficulties in a marriage. Additionally, facing too much conflict in the relationship can also act as a leading cause for marriages coming to an end.

Another issue that can considerably impact the success of a marriage relates to feelings of contempt. If individuals begin to feel contempt toward one another, it may prove difficult to fully move past issues. Feelings of anger, disgust and continuous negative thoughts toward a spouse may lead to further problems and could act as an indicator that a marriage may come to an end.

Many California residents may choose to handle marital issues in a variety of ways. Those who do not feel that the problems can be fixed may find themselves considering their divorce options. Each marital dissolution is different, and parties may fare better if they have the correct information on their side. Consulting with family law attorneys may help concerned individuals better understand how their particular circumstances could play into their legal proceedings.
