Divorce: Wealthy couples at greater risk of arguing over finances

When it comes to issues within a relationship, disagreements can arise over a variety of topics. However, finances continue to be one of the most common areas of conflict for married couples in California, especially the wealthy. Recent studies indicate that financial disputes among couples with considerable wealth may have a higher chance of leaving one or both parties considering divorce.

In some cases, encountering a difference of opinion in a relationship could be harmless. However, when it comes to finances, these differences could lead to intense arguments and increased levels of conflict that can be harmful to a relationship. These disputes can stem from a variety of circumstances, such as varying levels of income within the relationship or arguments over how to handle marital finances.

While it may seem like finances wouldn't be a concern for the wealthy, many couples who earn a higher income also take on greater financial obligations. Couples with more on the line may also have different views regarding how to plan for their financial futures. In some cases, conflict may have less to do with monetary responsibilities and instead stem from long work hours that could place a strain on the relationship.

Regardless of the level of wealth involved, going through a divorce can be a stressful and daunting process. Those who have a great deal at stake and wish to protect their financial futures could benefit from speaking with an attorney early on for guidance on how to prepare for what comes next. A family law attorney can work with a client in California in forming a strategy to pursue the most favorable outcome achievable during divorce proceedings.
