So who initiates divorce most of the time, men or women? A Forbes contributor writes:
Many people are surprised to learn that about 2/3 of divorces are
filed for by the wife. That number climbs even higher among women who
have more economic independence and social acceptance of the choice.
Based on my professional experience, my take on this trend is that
even though a man may engage in activities that take a toll on the
marriage, he’s usually not inclined to end it himself. By contrast, I’ve
seen many women put up with a range of destructive behavior — cheating,
drug or alcohol addiction, gambling, emotional or physical abuse, narcissism,
or any number of things – until they just can’t take it any more, or
until they see that their children are being irreparably affected by it.
At that point, they initiate divorce proceedings.
In my practice the Forbes' study matches what we see as well, that women initiate the filing of divorce 2 out of 3 times. This has been the case for us since 1998. The lesson here is for the men. If you think your wife will put up with poor behavior indefinitely then your are in for a surprise.
