These Careers Have the Highest Divorce Rates


 When you think of the things that keep a marriage together, communication, respect and decent finances are probably some things that come to mind. Many people don’t consider the fact that their career choice could actually impact their relationship. In fact, certain occupations are more likely to lead to divorce.

While people take on jobs to pay the bills, sometimes there are negative consequences involved with working these jobs. What a person does at work can sometimes spill over into their marriage, causing serious issues. These issues can then lead to divorce.

So which jobs should you avoid if you want to keep your marriage intact? Here are the ones with the highest divorce rates.


Dancers work with all sorts of people. They often get close and intimate with their clients or partners. This closeness can lead to physical and emotional affairs.

Massage Therapists

Like dancers, massage therapists get close to their clients. Massaging nude bodies all day is a good way to cause problems in your marriage. This job is very intimate and can make for jealous spouses.


Not surprisingly, bartenders often get divorced. They work in environments where the alcohol flows heavily. Plus, bars are commonly known as places where people go to pick up men or women, so you can imagine that those who work in these places may end up having marital problems.


You hear about top celebrities (and even lesser-known B-list stars) getting divorced on a regular basis. Being a singer or actor can lead to fame and fortune. However, there are downsides as well, such as unstable relationships. Celebrities are often away from their families for weeks or months at a time while they play games, shoot movies and tour the world. This is not the foundation for a happy marriage, especially when these celebrities have fans who would more than likely take them up on an offer to have an affair.

Gaming Workers

Those who work at casinos have a high risk of divorce. Gaming cage workers deal with money, which can be a turn on for many people. Service workers are in the casino where all the action is, so they tend to meet many kinds of people. These situations can cause them to lose interest in their marriage and look for someone more exciting. Plus, casinos involve gambling and drinking, which are not good influences for a relationship.

Factory Workers

Those who work in factories and on assembly lines often have little education. These jobs are highly repetitive and require little skill or experience. The pay is also low, so the work is not exciting or intellectually stimulating. The lack of pay and education can lead to an unstable marriage.
