Justin McCrea sure has. In his experience working with those involved in failed marriages, the Sacramento divorce attorney has many versions of love gone bad. Here are 3 common reasons those seeking a divorce in Sacramento call me so you can avoid brooking trip to Splitsville.
1. Not Seeking Help For Anger Management or Depression Issues
Refusing to seek help for mental health issues is a common issue involved in many divorce cases in California. Mental health issues range from anger management to inattention to depression and many more. Men often struggle because they don’t like to seek mental help — this really confirms the presence of stigma that surrounds those seeking assistance for mental health issues. Many women also have mental health issues and they often fail to seek help.
2. Financial Issues
They say, money doesn’t buy happiness. But it can relieve some stress and provide for a comfortable lifestyle in the right amount. But, yeah, having too little money is really a problem in marriages. Men often have an expectation that they will be the provider for their family. This may not always be the case. Some families sacrifice, the mother, a potentially higher or equal earner, stays home to attend to domestic duties while the husband vows to support the family. As a result, the family misses out on dual incomes or greater income potential.
This is definitely a problem for many couples. There is often no substantial benefit to the family with just the husband or wife working. Dual incomes can often provide better education for involved children, homeownership, new vehicles, vacations, savings, and investments. Some couples are ok with just one spouse working and that may be ok with them but may cause issues during a divorce.
One spouse’s infidelity can lead to financial issues.
3. “You Cheating Bastard!”
It may not always be the man cheating but it often is. Most women do not desire to get into relationships involving infidelity. Cheating starts at different times in relationships. Some cheaters were never monogamous while other cheaters may have only strayed once or twice. Was your spouse ever true to your or was it all just a bunch of lies and acting. People have different motives and reasons for having affairs. When a spouse discovers the infidelity of the other it is commonly irreconcilable.
