Politics affect almost everyone in some way. Even when individuals try to stay out of political discussions, certain aspects of their lives could be impacted due to political decisions. According to recent reports, many individuals -- including New York residents -- may even end up facing breakups and divorce due to the effects politics have in their lives.
A survey was conducted by a research institution that was interested in learning more about the effects of political differences on relationships. The survey consisted of 1,000 participants -- both married and unmarried -- who were 18 years old and above . Apparently, the survey found that 11 percent of individuals ended their romantic relationship due to political disagreements. Additionally, that number doubled to 22 percent for individuals in the millennial generation.
The current political climate has also caused more tension in these relationships than financial issues, which is typically a leading cause of relationship troubles. According to reports, 42 percent of millennials disagree about politics in their romantic relationships more now than they had in the past. Even individuals who are not in relationships can be affected by this correlation as 22 percent of survey participants indicated that they knew couples who had faced problems due to political disagreements.
The decision to divorce is a big one, and whether individuals choose to end their relationships due to political differences or other issues, they may wish to prepare as best as possible. Information on the proceedings they will likely face and how to go about working toward their desired divorce goals may help them better understand what to expect. Additionally, interested New York residents may wish to consult with experienced attorneys regarding their options.
