The negative aspects of divorce, like divisions of property, debt and questions about spousal support, can be so severe that it leaves many Massachusetts residents wondering what they may have done wrong in their marriage. While no one can know for sure the reason why a particular marriage was doomed to fail, there are a few events that -- if they occur -- may cause some concern.
Living apart is one of those events that can trigger any manner of problems in a marriage. According to RAND Corporation, which conducted a study of military families in 2013, the longer an enlisted service person was deployed away from his or her spouse, the higher chance there was that the marriage would end. This could have as much to do with the time apart as it has to do to the time re-adjusting to being back together again after living apart.
