A person's work can affect them in many different ways. Thus, what happens in a person's professional life can sometimes have implications for their personal life. In some instances, work-related problems may even lead to a marriage weakening to the point where a couple decides to divorce.
One assumption that many have is that the more stressful and time-intensive a person's job is, the greater their chance might be of getting divorced. One field that is often associated with long hours and high amounts of stress is the health care field. Thus, one might expect that health care professionals would have a higher divorce likelihood than average. However, a recent study indicates that the opposite may be the case.
