Is your career negatively impacting your relationship? PART 2

In our last post we started a discussion about how a career may impact your relationship. Specifically, we looked at the health care field. In general, although many may think that doctors have high divorce rates, that does not seem to be the case. So what careers have a reputation for putting a strain on a relationship?

One that you may not initially consider is the job of a massage therapist. The issue comes from the feelings of jealousy that might come from the spouse of a massage therapist. This can happen due to the fact that during the course of the job, the massage therapist has physical interaction with his or her clients. This occupation has a high divorce rate that sits at just over 38 percent.

Another occupation that has a high divorce rate that of a bartender or waiter. Bartenders often keep late hours and are often surrounded by a party-like atmosphere that includes alcohol. The divorce rate for this occupation is 38.4 percent, which is the second highest when looking at divorce and careers, according to one study.

Another one people may not consider is the job of a casino worker. Like bartenders, they also work in a party-like atmosphere and have a tendency to work long hours, late hours, and during holidays.

Finally, the career that tops the chart for most likely to get divorced is that of dancers and choreographers, with a divorce rate of 43.1 percent. It's not totally clear why this is the case, but a lot of it may have to do with their schedules, the amount of stress involved in their work and any travel involved.
