    'Tight working Schedule is responsible for increasing number of divorces' Is it true?

    no it's not. people are responsible for divorces because we have put our selves in a position where were never happy with what we have anymore.

    I'm with nightwork4 on this one. I know of couples who claim they both 'have' to work, but if they got rid of one their SUV's and hadn't over stretched on their mortage they'd be on the pigs back. People, not schedules, cause divorce.

    I would imagine that a heavy work schedule that conflicts with that of your significant other or leaves one of you in charge of ALL the household and family duties  might contribute to divorce in a marriage that is already troubled, but I don't see it would actually cause a divorce in a good marriage.

    Unfortunately, in this economy, it is not uncommon for one or both partners to work long hours (to keep their job) or to work more than one job so that there is enough money to pay all the bills.  In a good marriage I think that the couple understands that the sacrifice of time together is for the good of the unit and that the partners learn to make the most of the time they do have together. 

    For six years, my husband and I each worked one full-time job and one part-time job.  It wasn't easy and we missed each other's company frequently, but it didn't cause a break-up.  We were understanding of each other and the common goal.   We were not young - maybe maturity helped us through. 

    I do agree with nightwork4 and editor that for many of us the extra work is due to the greed of our personal desires.  I admit that it contributed to our reasons for working so much - we wanted to buy 10 acres of mountain property for retirement without giving up anything we already had.  For us it was worth it - I get to retire in 3 months and we are planning to move to the mountains next spring smile

    To some extent I guess it is possible that both partners working long stressful hours and then topping that with rota work and so on.  Could increase the chances of a divorces,even if two people are lucky and it does not get to that stage i will most certainly sour relation unless they adapt to each others working habits and make compromises to allocate quality time to each other.

    That does not mean just the odd weekend away.

    It is people in relationships that are responsible for their divorce, not the working schedule.

    To reduce the number of divorces, it is best to have open communication. As for tight working schedule that may lead to divorce is not the cause as the main reason will likely be lack of communication.

    To be husband and wife, it takes a million good deeds to bring 2 people together. So, we must treasure marriage at all cost. Be ready to listen with open heart. Once a while we might neglect the other partner but we must know that it is a great blessing to be together as husband and wife. So, always be ready to forgive each other if a mistake is being made. Try to have communication regularly and talk when something is not right.

    Most of the time we find hard to say I am sorry but this may be the best way to keep relationship going. If you are wrong, just say I am sorry. Talk over the things that you have done wrong and ask for forgiveness.
