Is the Trump administration responsible for increased divorce?

Even in a healthy marriage, Colorado spouses will often fail to see eye to eye on certain matters. Being in complete agreement on every issue is not a requirement for a long and happy union. When spouses stand in firm opposition on certain topics, however, the marriage can become highly contentious under certain circumstances. According to some researchers, the Trump administration has provided the conditions under which some couples will move toward divorce.

The research looked at survey responses that probed participants' political preferences and their marital health. While the full results have not yet been made available, researchers have stated that couples appear to be arguing more over the Trump presidency than over financial matters, which is often cited as a top cause of divorce. Approximately one third of Americans report encountering problems in their relationships, based on opposing political views related to the current administration.

Attorneys in both America and the UK state that they have seen a marked uptick in the number of divorce filings that have distinct political undertones. It should be noted, however, that disagreement over how Trump is doing in the early stages of his presidency is not likely to cause a sea change within a healthy marriage. More likely, political tensions serve to underscore a lack of common values and beliefs, and to highlight other tensions between spouses.

For those in Colorado who are at odds with their spouse over political matters, it is important to make sure that both parties are respecting the viewpoints of their partner and avoiding undue arguments that could impact their marriage. In cases where political debate is just one more in a long line of complaints about the union, it may be time to consider moving toward divorce. With just over 100 days in office, the Trump presidency will stretch over a considerable length of time. The thought of hashing out new and varied political arguments may spur some couples on to seek a timely divorce, even if Trump is not to blame.
