While financial troubles can often lead to a marital runaway, the opposite can happen. In a recent survey, more than a quarter of American married couples said that the relationship had only strengthened their relationship.
Do we have difficulties coupling couples?
Researchers at the University of Virginia have discovered that, out of 29 percent of those surveyed, the recession has undermined the commitment they had to marriage. Among those who had been contemplating the election, 38 percent stayed with the community, at least temporarily.
"A major trauma, which in this case meant financial distress, would degrade some people over the long term." he said Bradford Wilcoxprofessor of sociology, director of the University's National Household Project. "Others are much more flexible, and problems are only amplified. I think there is something similar to that of marriage." Five percent of residents between the ages of 18 and 45 wanted to buy before the farm was killed in 2008. I don't know exactly how many survivors of marriages, but between 2006 and 2009 by 7 percent the election rate has decreased.
Many struggle with financial problems, with one-third of contributors reporting that they often or almost always have trouble paying. 12 of them touched on real estate auction and signage. Unemployment, bar and working hours reduced the lives of 29 percent. More than half of the respondents have at least one mentioned difficulty and 20 or more of them have two or three.
In total, 13 percent said that the marriage did not ruin their marriage, and 58 percent did not confirm, but did not claim, that it had a stronger relationship with the family.
"But the consolation is the fact that he is became stronger on one side of the ropes and over the institution of the house, "said Wilcox.
For example, those who were not so affected by the economic downturn were reported to be happier than those who were (43 percent vs. 27 percent). To assess the risk of choice, researchers ranked the specialist on a scale of 1 to 10. 5 people were very likely to end the connection. Of the couples who felt that their relationship was reinforced, only 5 per cent were at risk, the rest being over 25 per cent. (Currently, 42 percent of first marriages are completed by choice).
The survey also showed that education and religion contribute to the success of the household. College graduate students were generally not so tragically affected by the threat, and they were only half as likely to be threatened. Similarly, only a quarter of regular churchgoers reported stress related to their will, among those who had not practiced any religion, 31 percent. Among religious families, more than one called their marriage happy (44 percent).
E. Jeffrey Hill, according to the Adjunct Professor of Family Studies at Provincial Brigham Young University it is common to see that financial troubles make marriages worse. However, in fact, stress managers are capable of stress, not specifically of the economic situation. "A lot of financially struggling couples stay in the marriage, just as they have vowed in their oaths, because they are committed and take every opportunity to be successful. Everything related to valleys. Hill said. Not all households can be rescued, for example, those that have some kind of addiction, are very difficult.
Hill and Wilcox said that vallбsprevious studies have proven that results in stronger bonds. Religious life includes the support and social aspects. "It's important for financially struggling couples to reach out to their relatives, friends, and other organizations rather than struggling alone." Wilcox suggested.
