Telemarketers and Bartenders Have Some of The Highest Divorce Rates

Brooklyn Family and Divorce

Do you think that your job has spillover effects on your life?

If so, you’re not the only one. Many people with very stressful jobs find that it impacts their life in multiple ways.

Jobs can put a lot of pressure on the family and the marriage. Initially, it might seem like these issues can be worked through, but over time, these issues can develop into serious problems that eventually lead to divorce. If you find that your stressful job is putting your marriage at risk of divorce, it’s important to choose a divorce lawyer you can trust.

U.S. Census Bureau Study

A recent study by the U.S. Census Bureau over five years identified that while money might not buy happiness, certain careers may help to keep a marriage together. However, this study also found that anyone working in bars and casinos end up having a higher risk of divorce. Gaming managers or those who work in casinos have the highest divorce rate, at just under 53%. Bartenders came up shortly behind with a 52.7% divorce rate.

Other careers where divorce is high include telemarketers, flight attendants and people working with plastic and machines. Money was identified as a major decision to leave or stay together.

Lower Risk Jobs

The jobs with the lowest risk of divorce were surgeons, physicians, scientists and chemical engineers. Actuaries were the most likely to have a chance of a stable marriage with a 17% divorce rate and a median salary of $97,000. Commitment to a partner with an unstable income or a high level of stress at work can put additional pressure on the marriage and may cause the partners to eventually split.

It was recommended to me that I get in touch with Mary Katherine through an acquaintance who works in the field. I can confidently say it was one of the best decisions I had made. I went through a complicated separation process and custody battle over my two year old son; my case was extremely challenging and before I retained the services of Mary Katherine it seemed as though all was lost. Mary Katherine and Eoin O' Mahony worked tirelessly on my case and managed to guarantee my access to my son and reach an agreement that protected my relationship with him and secured my status as his father. They did so with the utmost of professionalism, compassion, and generosity. I truly cannot recommend her warmly enough.
