You've heard the statistic before: Half of all marriages end in divorce. Whether that number still holds true is debatable, but for young married people today, it's their career — or their spouses' — that's leading to higher divorce rates. Workers in certain industries are seeing higher divorce rates by age 30, according to a new analysis of U.S. Census Data from career website Zippia. Job holders with the highest chance of divorce are those enlisted in the military. In fact, first-line enlisted military supervisors hold the top spot in the study with a 30 percent divorce rate.
Other jobs that often result in divorce papers are in the engineering, technical trades, service industry and carpentry fields. Bottom line: You might want to proceed with caution when it comes to the following 30 careers or you might end up losing your nest egg to divorce attorney fees.
