The job most likely to cause a divorce


Some career paths are more likely to cause marital issues than others. 

Workers in certain fields are seeing higher divorce rates by the age of 30, a recent analysis of US Census Data from career website Zippia found.

And the career with the highest divorce rate?

First-line enlisted military supervisors. It was found after analysis of Census Bureau’s Public Use Microdata Sample that they had a divorce rate of 30 per cent.

The occupation involves leading operations and co-ordinating the activities of enlisted military personnel.

The next highest rates came from careers including logisticians, automotive service technicians and mechanics, followed by military-enlisted tactical operations and air weapons. In fact, military jobs took three of the top 10 spots in its listing.

The reason for such high divorce rates in military could be down to the fact that a lot of time can be spent away from family, persistent danger or insufficient pay.

Careers with lower rates of divorce listed by Zippia included religious workers, speech-language pathologists, and dentists.
