Most of the time, infidelity is a sign of other problems and is simply the factor that gets to be one thing too many. Many times, though, people divorce for simpler reasons. If one spouse was dependent on the other for many years, such as someone might be if he or she chose to stay home with the children, sometimes this relationship can begin to erode as this spouse gains more independence once the children are out of the house.

Retirement may sometimes cause people to divorce. In some situations, people might find that without their careers and children to focus on, they no longer enjoy each other’s company as much as they did when they were first married.

Once the children are grown up, these couples might decide to divorce because there is no longer a reason for them to stay married.
