Love is not enough to keep a marriage happy, last study conducted by Australian researhers finds. So, there is a lot more that just being in love to keep a couple together.
The major factors influencing the marriage or long relationship are:
For example, a husband who is nine or more years older than his wife is twice as likely to get divorced, as are husbands who get married before they turn 25.
2. Previous relationships
Partners who are on their second or third marriage are 90 percent more likely to separate than spouses who are both in their first marriage.
Couples where one partner smokes are also more likely to have a relationship that ends in failure.
20 % of couples who have kids before marriage - either from a previous relationship or in the same relationship - having separated compared to just nine percent of couples without children born before marriage.
Money also plays a role, with up to 16 percent of respondents who indicated they were poor or where the husband - not the wife - was unemployed saying they had separated, compared with only 9 percent of couples with healthy finances.
Factors found to not significantly affect separation risk included the number and age of children born to a married couple, the wife's employment status and the number of years the couple had been employed.
The study was jointly written by Dr Rebecca Kippen and Professor Bruce Chapman from The Australian National University, and Dr Peng Yu from the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs.
