When you first got married, you may have felt that your relationship would easily stand the test of time. Certainly, you and your spouse may have had your differences, but you likely felt that you both could work through any issues those incompatibilities may have presented. As the years went on, however, you could have begun to feel less certain about your love's ability to conquer all.

Though you may wonder whether your feelings of dissatisfaction with your marriage are warranted, it could help you to feel less alone knowing that certain personal and marital aspects could place you at a higher risk of divorce.

Alcohol consumption

If you like to indulge in alcohol consumption and consider going out for drinks with friends or staying in with a bottle of wine as an ideal date night, but your spouse does not see the appeal in alcoholic beverages, your relationship could face issues. Apparently, the results of a study focusing on such differences revealed that a lack of compatibility in alcohol consumption resulted in 45 to 55 percent of study participants getting divorced. Those individuals with more similar drinking habits saw a divorce rate of only 35 percent.

Cost of the wedding

Because your wedding day is one of the biggest events of your life, you may have gone all out on the ceremony. With caterers, decorators, the ideal dress, the perfect tux and numerous other details, your wedding may have cost you a considerable amount of money. Unfortunately, making this day as perfect as possible could possibly have increased your chances of ending the marriage.

Apparently, women who spent more than $20,000 on their weddings were 3.5 times more likely to dissolve marriages than women who spent somewhere in the range of $5,000 to $10,000 on their ceremonies.

Timing of having children

Though you and your spouse may have both agreed that having children soon after marriage was a goal, the particular timing of your child's birth may have impacted your chances of divorce. Information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicated that women had a greater chance of ending a marriage before their 15th wedding anniversary if they had a child within seven months of getting married.

Reasons vary

Of course, choosing to end a marriage is a very personal decision, and the reasons behind the choice vary from person to person. Nonetheless, if you find yourself considering ending your marriage, you may wish to ensure that you obtain reliable legal information regarding your options for doing so.
