Can Donald Trump be blamed for causing couples to divorce?

It is impossible to turn on any new channel and not be bombarded with commentary on the early days of the Trump administration. Whether one loves or hates the new president, he has certainly made politics interesting. For some New Jersey couples, a failure to agree on whether Trump should be lauded or lambasted could lead to contention. In fact, researchers believe that serious political disagreements could lead some couples to seek a divorce.

According to a recent study, couples in which one partner holds far different political views than the other are at risk of marital problems. More specifically, survey respondents were asked about their views on Trump, and how those views have impacted their relationship. While the full results of the study have not yet been presented, researchers say that there are couples who have decided to end their marriage over political discord.

Divorce attorneys in both the United States and the United Kingdom back up that assertion. They state that there has been a definite increase in the number of divorce cases that are centered on the Trump administration. It should be noted that while political arguments may be the straw that breaks the camel's back, it is unlikely that arguments over Trump are the sole cause of a marital breakdown.

For many New Jersey couples, marital discontent has been brewing for many years. When a contentious topic, such as differing political views, takes center stage in a marriage, the other aspects of the relationship that are not working can become glaringly obvious. That, and not simply a failure to agree on our current president, is likely the cause behind these instances of divorce.
