European Study Potentially Links Long Commutes to Divorce


European Study Potentially Links Long Commutes to Divorce

Long commutes are a problem that people face all over the world, as much as many think that those in Southern California face the most intense driving conditions anywhere on the planet.  In fact, commuting to and from work has become such a problem for so many people that researchers are beginning to dig heavily into research of this phenomenon to find out more about its effects and general costs.  Surprisingly, a recent European study showed a potential link between those who suffer through long commutes every day and their probability of getting a divorce.

The study was done at Umea University in Sweden, and the line of demarcation for a commute was set at 45 minutes, as the researchers felt that those who faced a longer drive than this every day were enduring ‘long’ commutes.  Several different factors regarding the lives of these commuters were studied, and one of them was their overall success rate with marriage.

The study concluded that those commuters who faced daily or even regular ‘long’ commutes were 40 percent more likely to be divorced than their counterparts who did not face these commutes.  Unfortunately, no additional study resources were dedicated to answering why this was the case, but findings like these generally lead to additional research that could help identify the answers to these questions.

While the study mentioned above does not necessarily provide insight as to why those who spend many hours in their vehicles are more likely to be divorced, it seems relatively clear that people whose lifestyles push them to the limit deal with more stress on every aspect of their lives than others.  This could lead to difficulties with a marriage, and those who face this situation need to do what they can to put a California divorce in the past as quickly as possible.
