Jobs With the Highest Divorce Rates

Have you ever considered your job as a threat to your marriage? In some occupations, divorce rates can be astonishingly high.

A recent report shows working in some occupations may wreak havoc on one’s love life. Nathan Yau, creator of personal database FlowingData, retrieved data from the Census Bureau’s 2015 American Community Survey to calculate the rates of divorce in a wide variety of occupations, from actors to actuaries.

Bartenders, for example, work late evenings, weekends, and holidays, which leaves minimal free time to spend with their loved ones. This is especially the case if the spouse works a typical 9-to-5 job. Additionally, a bartender’s median annual salary is about $20,000, well below the median for all jobs of approximately $37,000.
