0

Who doesn’t want to see the world and have an opportunity to be a jet setter? The sales position that requires you to travel can be a dream come true. You get a chance to see different cultures, sightsee after your shift ends and meet new people every day, but what about your spouse?

We live in a world that is focussed on status, income, and lifestyle. Now that women have a better chance at climbing higher up the corporate ladder, we are seeing more job opportunities such as trade work and executive positions opening up to females.

13. Movies Actress

Whether you are a Baby Boomer, Millennial or Generation Z, we can’t count on both hands the number of actresses that have filed for divorce with their celebrity or non-celebrity spouse. As we look into the glass window of their relationships through tabloids and red carpet pictures, the life of an actress seems like it is to die for, but in some cases, the reality is far from glamorous.

The job may bring with it several challenges, such as being selected for a movie role that requires you to be on the other side of the planet. Not to mention that kissing a popular singer in a music video can create speculation in the relationship. We also cannot forget about the temptation of groupies, people close to them in their entourage, or the nightlife. Even the headline of a tabloid can create a rift between you and your partner. Many believe that once a story is printed in a reputable magazine, it must be true. Yes, there are actresses that have been happily married for a very long time but they are usually the ones that keep their personal lives private. Perhaps because they know how hard it can be to protect their relationship in Hollywood!

I will never forget the day when I was driving on a busy road and saw a woman working with a team of men on a construction site. While all of this sounds great, the reality is there are careers that will negatively impact the dynamic of a marriage and a relationship in general. This might be the very same reason that we all know at least one person that is simply not interested in being in a committed relationship, having children or settling down. The amount of time a person has to spend on the job, the overall job environment, the stress that comes with the profession or the emotional investment of the position itself may all play a factor in why a divorce could be around the corner. For all of the students or seasoned professionals reading this article, take out a pen and notepad and get ready for a quick education as we cover 12 female careers that are sure to lead to divorce.

12. Hollywood Actress

Whether you are a Baby Boomer, Millennial or Generation Z, we can’t count on both hands the number of actresses that have filed for divorce with their celebrity or non-celebrity spouse. As we look into the glass window of their relationships through tabloids and red carpet pictures, the life of an actress seems like it is to die for, but in some cases, the reality is far from glamorous.

11. Traveling Sales Woman

Who doesn’t want to see the world and have an opportunity to be a jet setter? The sales position that requires you to travel can be a dream come true. You get a chance to see different cultures, sightsee after your shift ends and meet new people every day, but what about your spouse? While he is at home taking care of the house, he needs someone to hold late at night too. As your passport collects more stamps of foreign places, the love you have can die down. Not to mention the factor of trust on both ends. He might fall into temptation while you are out of town for two weeks. You might be in Brazil and see a man that reminds you of Enrique Iglesias. Who knows what is bound to happen. A committed relationship can’t remain strong for too long with Skype video chats and pictures sent in text messages. Being physically there in person is a part of the packaged deal. If you find someone that will be fine with this type of career, good luck, but remember if it starts to feel like a permanent long distance relationship you may want to consider a new profession.

10. Transportation Worker
While you may have read this heading and thought I’m talking about being a bus driver, a day in the life of a transportation worker is on a whole other level. These women usually drive big trucks throughout their country and being away from home weeks on end means saying goodbye to their family for long periods of time. Their personal safety is compromised as they drive through multiple cities carrying the delicious food that we buy from grocery stores and other products. This job can leave people feeling lonely when they spend most of their time commuting in a truck. Sitting most of the time can cause back problems and all you want to do is be healthy to go home to your family. It may start to feel like a dead end job and this can create a limited income if there is no ladder to climb at your company. You just need to hope that if you set up your lifestyle the right way, you can work for a certain period of time throughout the year and take an extended vacation.

9. Social Workers

Social workers help bring families together and handle problems in dysfunctional homes. They are often awake late at night working on cases and often have to show up to court to testify as a witness. Social workers are often on-call and have to be there for their clients at inconvenient hours. Women in this profession are the backbone of broken homes and quite often they end up having their own mental health issues to the point of seeing a therapist themselves. On the bright side, social workers are good listeners and give helpful advice because solving family problems is their forte. What can be unfortunate is if a social worker starts to turn to drugs or alcohol to help muster the energy for another day of work. An alternative to this career is becoming a professor and teaching about the fundamentals of this profession with real life examples to get your students ready for what’s to come. Opening your own practice is another way to use your family-building skills to avoid this challenging job. Nobody ever said this career was going to be easy, but there are circumstances that you might see that will change your perspective about life forever.

 

8. Paramedic

Studies show that 22.75% of divorces are with people that work in the medical industry. Paramedics jump in trucks all day and rush people to the hospital with the goal of saving as many lives as they can.

If a paramedic works around the clock, they might be calling their paramedic truck their bed because losing sleep happens all of the time. The job itself is also traumatic, with many women helping people with horrific injuries, and that isn’t something that many of us can handle. They may save a life, but the realization that some people are beyond saving can be hard to take. While these caretakers do their job, speaking about a difficult situation with your spouse after work might be difficult. Being in a high-stress environment can also get in the way of maintaining good health. While it can be a rewarding job, think about your partner waiting for you at home as you work late nights.

7. Fashion Photographers

Fashion is one of the industries that helps make the world go around. If you sit down and think about it, fashion images teach us how to dress. Whether we see amazing photos in a magazine or at a museum, someone had to take that Kodak shot. Photographers are not guaranteed an income and competition in the business is expected. Accepting multiple clients to pay your mortgage can turn your job into a day, night and weekend schedule. Keep in mind that buying new equipment that includes upgrading your camera can also get pricey. Home improvements might have to take a back seat and depending on necessary updates, it can bring with it a lot of stress on your partner. When you have a lot of clients to handle by yourself, it can also become incredibly easy to feel burned out. Being paid on time because a customer is waiting for funds can also delay date night with your loved one. You might even have to put your values aside to get a client that has a different vision. For most artists, this can be discouraging and make them feel like they are not being true to themselves. But you just need to hope they can keep their head up and hope they’ll be able to create art that speaks to who they are as a person.

1. Police Officers

With all of the negative press on the news these days, I wonder how any male or female police officer can walk the streets and do their job without wondering if they will make it home safe. It is one thing to watch COPS on television and think we know exactly what they endure but it is only a sample of what they actually go through. Female cops are constantly compared to their male counterparts.

They are teased on the job for being a woman that can’t live up to the male standard in the industry and often have to work irregular hours. Many spend more time at work than in their own house that they paid for! What does that mean for her partner? Spending time with her a few hours a day, listening to her work related (dysfunctional) problems, watching her resort to alcohol to heal the pain or accepting the fact that the both of you might have to regularly see a marriage counselor.

The suicide rate for cops is also high because of the graphic situations they have to see on a daily basis. The salary of a security guard for a career change is not desirable, so taking on an office job at your police department might be a better fit if you were looking to mix things up.
