Divorcees are known to be more likely to drink and have money problems than others.

Several studies have repeatedly shown that people who drink large amounts of alcohol are at a heightened risk of divorce.

‘On average, divorced people drink more than married people,’ said Fartein Torvik, a researcher at the Norwegian Institute of Public Health who has studied alcoholism, in 2013.

‘To some extent this is due to increased drinking after a divorce, but people who drink heavily also have a higher risk of experiencing a divorce, so heavy drinking likely interferes fundamentally with the quality of marriage.’
