Arguing About Money

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

Sonya Britt, an assistant professor who has a PhD in financial planning, says the top predictor of divorce is arguments about money, after studying data from more than 4,500 couples.

She said it doesn’t matter how much you make or how much you’re worth.  People argue about money at all levels.

“It’s not children, sex, in-laws or anything else. It’s money — for both men and women,” according to Dr. Britt.

Divorce for Political Incompatibilty

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

I try to tie current events into a divorce angle on this blog whenever I can.  But I never thought there would be a divorce story in the protesting crowds I am watching in the streets of Egypt on the morning news.

Sure enough though, there’s a divorce angle, according to  After 12 years of marriage, a 31-year-old Egyptian woman has filed for divorce in Cairo from her 35 year old husband.

The reason given is numerous disagreements over the last year about President Mohamed Morsi.  The woman said the husband is stubborn and will not stop his support for Morsi and she cannot accept that in a husband.

The husband said his wife makes negative comments on every decision Morsi makes and only listens for bad news on channels that do not tell the truth.

So far, political incompatibility is not grounds for divorce in Maryland, Virginia or DC.
