Why do people get divorced?

Norwich has the highest rate of divorce across England and Wales. 1 in 8 people aged 16+ in Norwich are divorced or were formally in a civil partnership.

Pauline Godfrey, psychosexual and relationship therapist, explains that relationships can breakdown for a number of reasons. These can include:

  • Financial problems
  • Work/Life balance
  • Becoming new parents
  • Affairs

“Couples go into a negative way of communicating. As they stop listening clearly to each other they pick up on the negative parts of the conversation instead of the positive.”
