Certain personality traits may increase likelihood of divorce

When two people walk down the aisle in New Jersey, they naturally expect to stick together long term. Of course, sometimes irreconcilable differences prevent that from happening, ultimately leading to divorce. In many situations, the problem has to do with the particular personality types of the spouses who are married. Here is a glimpse at a few personality traits that could doom a marital union.

One of these personality traits is the tendency to catastrophize. One partner may blow small incidents out of proportion, and this can cause the marriage to erode over time. Oftentimes, the incidents are not significant, but depression and anxiety can easily magnify it.

Another problematic personality trait is materialism. Research shows that if at least one of the spouses has a tendency to want to buy more, this can have a negative impact on the marriage. In addition, if a spouse is inclined to avoid getting into arguments, this can result in unresolved issues that prevent the marital relationship from progressing.

When divorce is inevitable, the process can certainly take a toll on a person both emotionally and financially. However, if two divorcing spouses can find common ground when it comes to matters such as alimony or property division, they can avoid going through traditional divorce litigation, which can be more stressful than resolving such issues outside of court. An attorney can help a divorcing spouse in New Jersey to pursue the most personally favorable outcome possible while simultaneously ensuring that his or her rights are protected each step of the way.  THERE IS LIFE AFTER DIVORCE
