Money issues are a common cause of divorce

Marriage is a happy and joyous occasion that should be celebrated. No couple ever marries, thinking that they will one day separate. However, statistics say that over half of all marriages in Arizona and across the United States end in divorce. A number of factors can contribute to a divorce, such as infidelity and lack of communication. However, one of the most common reasons why couples separate is money issues.

Even wealthy couples who seem to be financially secure can have marital issues rooted in money. The divorce proceeding of former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani and estranged wife Judith recently made headlines. According to reports, Judith detailed claims of lavish spending by Rudy while she was cut off from finances.

Judith said that Rudy had spent nearly $900,000 in just a few months, which included over $286,000 that she claimed was used to support his alleged mistress. Although Rudy Giuliani previously called the situation "amicable," the divorce proceedings have involved high degrees of conflict between the couple. The judge urged the couple to attempt to work through their issues in private.

Financial issues can affect any relationship, even those of wealthy couples. Money is a common cause of the great amounts of stress that so often lead to the collapse of a marriage. Regardless of the reason, the end of a marriage can be a difficult and confusing situation to experience. Those in Arizona who have questions about divorce could benefit by seeking the services of a legal representative. An experienced and knowledgeable attorney could offer protection and help individuals navigate through this stressful time.
