Frankie Ballard Praised For His Tipping

The Best And Worst Jobs For Your Marriage

According to a new study, what you do for a living affects the likelihood of your relationship ending. Career site Zippia did the research on how much people’s occupations contributed to their decision to divorce and used data from the U.S. Census Bureau to find out the careers with the highest and lowest divorce rates.

Researchers reviewed divorce rates for individual positions at age 30 and found the worst job for a marriage is in the military a First-Line Enlisted Military Supervisor, which has a 30% divorce rate. Here are the top 10 worst:

  • First-Line Enlisted Military Supervisors
  • Logisticians
  • Automotive Service Technicians and Mechanics
  • Military Enlisted Tactical Operations and Air Weapons
  • Chemical Technicians
  • Military, Rank Not Specified
  • Nonfarm Animal Caretakers
  • Library Assistants, Clerical
  • Engineering Technicians, Except Drafters
  • Diagnostic Related Technologists and Technicians

And on the flip side, researchers found the jobs that are less likely to split couples up and lead to divorce. Here are the 10 best:

  • Television, Video, and Motion Picture Camera Operators
  • Religious Workers
  • Speech-Language Pathologists
  • Dentists
  • Management Analysts
  • Architectural and Engineering Managers
  • Chief Executives and Legislators
  • Transportation, Storage, and Distribution Managers
  • Miscellaneous Legal Support Workers
  • Special Education Teachers

But take this all with a grain of salt because all marriages are different, so even if you have one of the “worst” jobs, your marriage can still be rock solid.
