Do assets impact divorce?

On Behalf of | Jan 19, 2023 | Divorce |

When going through a divorce, you likely spend time thinking about your assets and how they will end up divided.

Because assets take up such a large part of people’s mental space when going through a divorce, it is important to know the ways in which these impacts may manifest.

Wealthy couples and arguments

As Business Insider states, assets do tie into divorce in numerous ways. For example, some people believe that the more assets a couple have, the more likely they are to fight.

This even has some evidence in the fact that upper-middle-class couples actually fight more than any other wealth bracket, despite having a good amount of assets and wealth.

At the same time, however, upper-class couples have the highest rate of amiable divorces. This goes directly against the idea that couples with more assets fight more often.

The view on assets

Instead, it might boil down to how a couple views their assets rather than the actual number of assets they have. In short, even if one couple has fewer assets than another, they may fight less if they feel more financially stable.

This financial stability can lead to one couple having fewer arguments throughout the process of their divorce. It is impossible, however, to truly determine how many arguments will happen over the course of a divorce or how intense these arguments may grow.

Thus, while it is prudent to look at how assets may impact divorce itself, this should not be used as a tool of prediction for couples.
