Interfering in-laws are ‘responsible for one in 10 divorces’ in Britain, study into marriage breakdown reveals
- Rows about how often couples see families are major cause of tension
- Tensions also arise over how to bring up children and where to live
- Top reasons for divorce were affairs and selfishness
- But 11 per cent blamed interfering in-laws for marriage breakdown
Arguments about how often couples see parents and families were the underlying tensions behind nearly a third of marriage splits, while rows over how to bring up the children caused difficulties for a quarter of married couples.
Disagreements over the division of household chores, career aspirations and holidays were also major factors in married couples splitting up.
