15 Career Paths That Will Likely Lead To Divorce
If you are preparing to discover what you will do for the rest of your life, or even if you are considering a career change, there are a few things to keep in mind. You may need money that you can do earn.
If you are a married person or want to get married someday, you need to think about more than just money and the benefits that the career you are looking for can offer. There are many jobs that can be attractive because of the pay or rewards that allow you to help others, but they come at a price.
Is the profession you are considering compatible with a happy married life? You might be surprised at some of the numbers you’ll read in just a few minutes. A nurse’s job can certainly be a rewarding job in terms of helping people, but it can also be tough in a marriage. A job on offer in a casino can have great benefits, but do you know what goes on behind closed doors? You may be happy to be a massage therapist, but is your spouse happy with this career choice?
As you read this today you will come across some numbers that aren’t too surprising in terms of divorce rates. On the other hand, you will find some of them. The numbers are correct as of December 2016, so keep them in mind when searching for a job.
01. Law Enforcement And The Military
Anyone who knows someone who has worked in the military or in law enforcement knows the stress the job can put on a marriage. Police sometimes work long shifts, and if they work in a high-crime area, they can work a lot of overtime each week. Those long hours away from home can lead to loneliness and even mistrust of your partner.
The military situation is worse because, for example, the husband can go on a tour for seven or eight months. Being away from home for an extended period of time can certainly lead to problems on the home front. Such a long absence can strain even the strongest of relationships.
02. Maids And Cleaners
Domestic workers do not live a glamorous life. They work long hours, sometimes odd hours, and take a lot of time off for little pay. They spend most of their time taking care of someone else’s home while their own sometimes suffers. After all, who wants to clean someone else’s house all day and then go home and clean it themselves?
You also have the fact that these housewives usually play the traditional wife role because the real wife is busy with her career. Sometimes this can lead to the development of a relationship between the maid and the husband of the house they are looking after. The divorce rate in this area is about 26.3%.
The bishop’s work is very difficult. They spend the whole day in the hot sun, usually on a very hot balcony. Then of course you have the fact that work is very hard. At the end of the day, this is not a good combination of factors for a happy family.
Anyone who does stressful or stressful work is not in the best mood when he comes home at night. They may criticize their spouse, taking frustration out on their difficult day on someone who doesn’t deserve it. If this happens too often, it can cause obvious problems. The divorce rate in this area is about 26.8%.
Let’s be honest, being a waiter or waitress is hard work. They spend their entire shift trying to please all of their customers and they do so for a small paycheck and hoping for a good tip. They are directly responsible for the customer returning to give the organization more business, or never returning.
They should be happy and relaxed during their shift and will usually do some flirting along the way. They need to make the customer feel important so that they come back to eat and thus leave a reasonable tip.
The problem is that this harassment can usually lead to extracurricular activities and that is never good for the person being talked to. The divorce rate in this area is about 27.1%.
Telemarketers job is very stressful. Inviting people who don’t want to talk to you can’t be good for self-esteem. Constant refusal to work an eight-hour shift can wear a person down. Many telemarketers also have quotas that they want their employees to target. Selling phones isn’t easy, and if someone doesn’t make their cut, it can be a very bad day, or a bad check at the end of the week.
Much of this stress can be carried home and accidentally projected onto an unsuspecting spouse. This is why the divorce rate in this area is around 28.1 percent.
06. Baggage Porters and Concierges
These jobs are very similar to those of a waiter and waitress. They work long shifts to please customers for low pay. Despite this, it is very important in these situations to make the client feel important, so pampering can go a long way in making the client feel happy with their stay so they will come back in the future. Tips in this area can range from anything to extremely high amounts depending on the client they are dealing with. So they work hard for every guest and sometimes get nothing in return.
One fact is different here is that when there is flirting and the hotel room and bar are too close, it can lead to things that are not good for the marriage. The divorce rate here is about 28.4 percent.
07. Artists, Entertainers and Athletes
You might think this has to be the highest level of all the jobs available but surprisingly it is not. Yet it is there. Artists are out on the road for extended periods of time and that’s not good for home life. What is not good is the fraud that often takes place on the road.
So are professional athletes. They’re on the road for weeks at a time, waiting for them at every town they stop at. Many couples in these situations overlook what they know is going on. But some cannot and the divorce rate in these sectors is around 28.5%.
08. Nursing, Psychiatry And Home Health Aids
This profession requires very long hours around the clock. They also require the professional to be close to their patients. Some get closer than others, and if you have a marriage that you want to keep, it’s never a good thing.
The close personal relationship that can develop between a healthcare provider and a patient can sometimes extend far beyond the room in which care is provided. Not to mention, the 12-hour shift doesn’t leave much time for a social life. Most people, after working a shift like this, just want to go home and go to bed. The divorce rate in these sectors is just under 29%.
09. Telephone Operators
There was a time when an operator’s job was the work of a grueling day at the office. All calls are routed through the system and one operator can handle well thousands of calls in a single shift.
This stress may be brought home and taken out by the spouse or the worker may be too tired to do anything and go straight to bed. It is not a physically demanding job but it is definitely mentally demanding.
Do they still exist though? When was the last time someone spoke to a worker? This is something to think about. Either way, their divorce rate is 29.3%.
10. Factory Workers
The factory worker is not in a spousal sexually abusive environment, but the divorce rate is still high. Long working hours, work pressure, and low wages can lead to many problems at home.
They do not work in the healthiest of environments and one can see how a factory worker can easily acquire a bleak and dreary outlook on life. This will lead to obvious problems in the home as the divorce rate is around 30%.
Any factory worker must pay extra attention to his wife so that things can remain pleasant at home.
11. Machine Operators
Machine operators face many of the same problems as factory workers. Long working hours, stressful work environment, and not getting the best salary can make a person stressed. If there is no outlet for this pressure, it will be misdirected towards the younger spouse.
The work environments are also usually dirty and there is no stimulation to the mind. Repeating the same process, thousands of times a day, can take a toll on the brain and cause extreme boredom and/or depression.
The divorce rate for machine operators is about 32.7%. If you’re doing it for a career, you might want to take your wife out to dinner tonight.
12. Casino Workers
No one can say exactly why, but people who work in casinos have serious problems being faithful to their spouses. There have been many reports of intense fraternization in the workplace in almost every casino.
Maybe it’s all the money there is. Perhaps it creates an illusion of excitement and danger and some people like to think it is completely different from the real world. Among those who don’t cheat with other employees, there is always a temptation because the big winners will try to buy some fun with an employee they find attractive.
The divorce rate for casino workers is around 31.3%. The rate of workers handling cash inside cages is even higher, at 34.6 percent.
13. Massage Therapist
It makes perfect sense that someone who reaches out to other people all day is going to have problems in the relationship department. Even if a person is faithful and loyal, there will always be suspicions from his wife. You’ll always be surprised when you can’t see what’s going on.
Cheating is often not initiated by the person doing the scrubbing. Most occasions occur because the client feels so relaxed and comfortable that they begin to develop feelings for their masseuse. What may seem like a harmless flirtation at first can quickly turn into something that has to be off limits if one isn’t careful. Your number here is 38.2% and the real surprise is that it is not higher than that.
This is also not surprising. Any profession that involves alcohol will have marriage problems. It does not matter whether the couple drinks or not. They are not needed. Bartenders do what they do every day. The more the client drinks (and the more aggressive) he will try.
It’s a constant thing and the waiter relies on these guys for good tips until they have to send them back. Statistics show that it is only a matter of time before someone “slips” and makes the wrong decision.
The divorce rate among bartenders is 38.4%. While this is still less than 1 in 2, it is still a number that some couples should be concerned about.
15. Dancers and Choreographers
All you have to do is look at the results of Dancing with the Stars to find the exact number for that. There have been a number of confirmed “hooks” by contestants on the show over the years. This is because when two people dance together, very close to each other, for a long time; It’s only a matter of time before something happens if there is attraction. These dances aren’t perfect without hours of practice.
All dancers face the same temptations. Things are not limited to this TV show. Going out on the road with someone you hang out with every night is bound to mislead one if one does not have strong willpower, yet temptation sometimes trumps even the strongest of minds. The divorce rate for professional dancers is about 43 percent. If you talk about other types of “dancers” you can easily double that number.
