You’ve heard the statistic before: Half of all marriages end in divorce. Whether that number still holds true is debatable, but for many young married people today, it’s their career — or their spouses’ — that’s leading to higher divorce rates. Workers in certain industries are seeing higher divorce rates by age 30, according to an analysis of U.S. Census Data from career website Zippia.

The choice of a particular career often comes with some serious caveats, including the potential for long hours, time away from home, increased emotional stress or just lower pay. All of these factors can potentially lead to conflicts with your significant other, some of which will ultimately be impossible to reconcile. And the analysis from Zippia reveals that some professions appear to be driving a much higher percentage of people to throw in the towel on their marriage.

So, here’s a closer look at those jobs that can lead to some serious difficulties in your personal life.

  1. I am trying to find out where my daughter is Aziza Id Deen,who was a passenger at 4:05 Detroit time.
    She send me a text that she was being picked.
    Due to being at my nurse supervisor job,I didn’t get the text until recently.
    I need to know who picked her up and where was she dropped off

  2. All I learned is that if you make more than $90000 a year , your divorce rate is less than 10 percent . If you make less , better get a job at Walmart or be a waitress at Denny’s.

  3. All jobs that require travel and a lot of time away from lead to affairs in a marriage which lead to divorce. It has nothing to do with the job per say, it has to do with people’s inability to be committed to one person, the person they married.

  4. BOILERMAKERS HAVE LONG WORK DAYS (10-12hrs) SOMETIME FOR MONTHS ON END, OFREN WORKING NIGHT SHIFTS AND OFTEN OUT OF TOWN FOR MORE THAN A YEAR. I CAN BARELY REMEMBER MY CHILDREN GROWING UP. I MISSED SCHOOL THINGS MY CHILDREN PARTICIPATED IN AND AFTER MY SECOND DIVORCE I BURIED MYSELF IN WORK TO TRY AND KEEP MY SANITY. THE DRINKING AND ALL OF THE ABOVE NEARLY KILLED ME AS SURE AS IT KILLED MY MARRIAGES. MY 40 YEARS IN THIS TRADE WENT BY IN A FLASH AND RATHER THAN PLACING CURRENT EVENTS IN THE CONTEXT OF MONTH OR YEAR EVENTS WERE OFTEN ASSOCIATED WITH WHERE I WAS WORKING AT THE TIME.
    EXAMPLE: 9-11 HAPPENED WHEN I WAS WORKING AT CALVERT CLIFFS ON THE FIRST STEAM GENERATOR CHANGEOUT, 7-12’S AFTER WORKING 6-10’S FOR A YEAR IN BALTIMORE.

  5. I must say that this is a very discouraging article for someone deciding what to do in life. As for an engineer, I know a retired engineer who has been happily married for over 57 yrs. Your article needs to give advice or suggestions on how to make the marriage work; not quit or even start working at, which most of these jobs are, a high paying job.

  6. Yeah, I call BS on most of that list, excluding the Military. I would cite ANY job that takes a person away from their spouse for extended periods to be a major cause of divorce. My field was railroading but I had employment on a railroad that kept me close to home. Still married!
    However, those working for neighboring railroads that take men (and women) away for extended periods cause much stress in a relationship and the divorce rate for railroaders is very high.

  7. Marriage is about commitment!
    Employment is about commitment!
    Learning to balance these two is the secret to a successful life!
    After being in the service businesses for 25 years and facings these challenges every day the balancing was intense!
    Retirement solved the challenge.
    Have a wonderful life!
