Marrying dancers, choreographers - 'an invitation for divorce'

London, Mon, 07 Dec 2009 ANI

London, December 7 (ANI): Dancers, choreographers, bartenders, massage therapists, are more likely to divorce than vets, agricultural engineers and teachers, says a new research.


Dr Michael Aamodt, an industrial psychologist at Radford University in Virginia, came up with the formula to work out the likelihood of success of a marriage based on the occupation of one of the partners.


The study, to be published in the Journal of Police and Criminal Psychology, found that dancers, choreographers, massage therapists and bartenders have around a 40 per cent chance of landing in divorce courts.


Nurses, psychiatrists and those who help the elderly and disabled were also said to be facing the risk of a relationship breakdown with around 28 percent chance, reports the Telegraph.


Dai Williams, a chartered occupational psychologist and member of the British Psychological Society, told the Observer: "This is a fascinating piece of research containing all sorts of surprises.


"It won't amaze anyone that relationships frequently break down under the pressure of jobs involving long hours and unpredictable working patterns. Or that if you work in an extrovert environment, you will have more chance to meet other people and develop competing relationships. Opticians, who have a low divorce rate, meet lots of people, but don't have the time to chat them up.


"But what is interesting is that those involved in caring professions experience a high level of break-up. This might be because they spend too long caring for other people at the cost of their own families, or because they are naturally sensitive people who are more vulnerable and sensitive in their own relationship."


Jobs with the highest chance of a divorce:


1. Dancers and choreographers 43.05 percent


2. Bartenders 38.43 percent


3. Massage therapists 38.22 percent


4. Nursing, psychiatric, and home health aides 28.95 percent


5. Entertainers and performers, sports and related workers 28.49 percent


6. Baggage porters and concierges 28.43 percent


7. Telemarketers 28.10 percent


8. Waiters/waitresses 27.12 percent


9. Roofers 26.85 percent, and maids and housekeeping cleaners 26.38 percent


10. Chefs/head cooks 20.10 percent. (ANI)
