If you want a long, happy marriage, don't marry someone who does this as a job

Grandma might have told you to avoid musicians to avoid divorce, but it seems bartenders are more prone to divorce than other occupations.

Trying to avoid divorce? Grandma might have told you to avoid musicians, but it appears bartenders are more prone to marital breakup compared to other occupations, according to recent data.

Service professionals, like bartenders, are more likely to divorce than doctors.

If we judge by Anthony Scaramucci’s life, working for President Donald Trump is the career that will send you and your spouse into divorce court.

[post_ads]If you want a long, happy marriage, you might want to reconsider a job offer from POTUS, but according to new data, the job you want to dodge is bartending.

Despite reaching a 40-year low, divorce is still pretty common, although it doesn't necessarily follow the “half of all marriages end in divorce” myth.

Using data from the 2015 American Community Survey, Flowing Data’s list might have you thinking you should swipe left on a bartender.

The divorce rate for bartenders, flight attendants and casino workers is more than 50 percent followed by machine operators and those involved in a production job, like machine setters.

The stress of telemarketing and answering services must place some pressure on marriages, but actuaries, scientists and doctors have a lower rate of divorce.

The higher the salary, the lower the rate of divorce, according to Flowing Data.

Construction workers, electricians, psychologists, detectives, registered nurses, painters and paper hangers are right dab in the median.

Flowing Data also noted that divorce rates are higher among the unemployed and less common among Asians.

“What surprised me was the differences between men and women. I expected the percentages to end up at similar values for most of the groups, but there’s some flip-flopping between men and women as you change between different demographics. There also seems to be a bigger difference between men and women among the employed and those with advanced degrees.

“I’m not sure why this is. I thought that widows might increase the percentage of women who remarry, but when I looked at only those with a divorced marriage status (excluding those with a married status but married more than once), the differences increased.

“So my only guess is less divorce opportunity for men. We know they tend to marry later than women and die earlier. Maybe the window is smaller? I’m totally guessing though.”
