People in Colorado may know that their work lives have an effect on their personal lives as well. From health and well-being to romantic relationships, nearly all aspects of a person’s life could be affected by their choices on the job. According to one study, people who work in certain types of environments may also be more likely to divorce. One study investigated whether people who work more closely with other potential partners – for straight people, members of the opposite sex – were more likely to end their marriages than those in a same-sex environment.
According to researchers, there was a stronger correlation between the availability of potential partners in the workplace and men’s likelihood of divorce. Men were more likely to divorce when working near women than women were when working in male-dominated industries. It should be noted that the study was conducted in Denmark, with a smaller, potentially homogeneous population than the American population. However, the study looked at a massive sample of people – hundreds of thousands of men and women.
According to the study, men working in male-dominated fields like construction were less likely to divorce than women in the same field. However, one specific industry showed a higher divorce rate for both men and women, and it is not particularly known for gender imbalance: hospitality, including hotels and restaurants. On the other hand, farmers and librarians were the least likely to divorce. However, researchers did note that other factors, such as financial stability, could affect the likelihood of divorce as well.
Whatever their professions, people can choose to end their marriages due to a range of differences and problems.
