Almost half of all American marriages will end in a divorce. Many of these
marriages are the result of a discrepancy that both partners just can’t
seem to resolve. This can be anything from opinions on work, religious
beliefs or a preference in a living location. Yet a new study has revealed
that one of the top reasons for divorce revolves around kids. Couples
who disagree on whether or not to enter into parenthood are twice as likely
to divorce as couples who have the same goals in this area. Also, once
the children are born, parents who have different strategies on how to
raise their kids will end up in arguments that may eventually lead to
This situation was recently publicized in the divorce of Katy Perry and
Russell Brand. While Brand wanted to have children and be a father, Perry
was adamant that they avoid transitioning into the role of parents. Brand,
at 37, has already lived plenty of his life single, while Perry is only
27 and still wants to continue in her role as a singer start. Childfree
couples divorce more often than couples that have at least one child,
partially because their split will not affect a third party negatively.
Most times, the married couples without kids divorce because they disagree
on whether or not they should have kids, how many they should have, where
they should go to school, etc. In the end, married couples who don’t
have kids often have less to worry about in the proceedings. There is
no custody to fight for, no
child support to pay. Whether or not you have children, the lawyer at Hopper Law Firm,
