Gender and finances can affect likelihood of divorce

In California, families may have a wide range of financial arrangements. Some couples may have a primary earner and a stay-at-home parent; in other cases, both partners work at a job outside the home. Despite the advances made over the years in terms of women's achievement in the workplace, many people still expect that in a marriage, the husband will be the higher earner of the pair. These kinds of social expectations can have damaging effects: One study indicates that couples in which the wife earns more than the husband are one-third more likely to divorce.

California spouses may relate to celebrities who divorced

One thing most California spouses might agree on is that marriage can be quite challenging at times. Whether you've only been living the married life for a year or two or you have been with your spouse for decades, you've likely overcome some tough times in your relationship. You happen to reside in a state where many celebrities live. They often experience serious marital problems too. The only difference is that their stories are often told in public.
