A couple of years ago, my wife told me that she wanted a divorce.
I recently read an article claiming that anywhere from 60 percent to 85 percent of divorces are initiated by the wife. How likely are men to initiate divorce compared with women?
The researchers, Margaret F. Brinig and Douglas W. Allen, looked at 25 different U. The oldest examined the 9, divorces that took place nationwide in and found that 62 percent were filed by women. The researchers looked at different variables to understand why divorces tend to be filed by women.
They suggest three main explanations:. Conversely, when men said they were the ones with the greater desire to end the relationship, 16 percent of their ex-wives disagreed, saying they themselves wanted the divorce more.
I also have data on breakups of long-term relationships, and the overall takeaway is the same: Women are more likely to dump a partner to use the brutal common expression than to get dumped by one. A YouGov survey of nearly 1, U. Overall, though, a third of all men and a third of all women surveyed said they had experienced being both the dumper and the dumpee. The YouGov survey also found that women were less likely than men to talk to their exes — only 36 percent of women said they were still in touch with at least one of their former partners, compared with 52 percent of men.
