Adultery
It is an unforgivable sin for a partner. If either of them is involved in any such activities, it can be too difficult to bear that person any more. A person’s trust and confidence in their partner is shattered and they find it impossible to continue together.

Stress and Rude Behavior
Stress is one of the more common causes that lead to divorce. A person might be facing financial crisis or an emotional set back. During such phases a person can become bitter and might involve in fights with their partners. During such moments, they may utter hurtful phrases which is normally a reason for divorces.

No children
Children are considered as the gluing force between parents. In many situations regardless of how bad the relations between the parents might be, they compromise for the sake of their children’s future. However, if the couple doesn’t have any children, the relation can get weaker with time. Therefore couples find it easier to leave their partner.

Difference of Beliefs
It normally happens when people marry outside their community because of love and affection for their partner. However, ignoring core values such as religious beliefs is a potential cause of divorce. Initially, couples are happy compromising on certain issues but with time, it can get frustrating enough to cause separation.
