Today’s Tip – Does the Auto Industry Induce Divorce?
USA Today recently reported that 40 to 50 percent of marriages in the United States end in divorce. That’s a sobering statistic.
That rate is nearly unchanged regardless of a couple’s faith, financial, and family status. From where you sit, glance around and you’ll see people that are married, have major relationship issues, and certainly some who are divorced. It may even be more than once.
Fair or not, the automotive industry has been named by some as an industry that strains marriages. There are 12-hour work days, 6- or 7-day work weeks, late nights, drinks after work, and an all-consuming focus on making the next commission. That sounds like the whistle of the divorce train steaming down the track, doesn’t it?
