Money and divorce: What recent divorce research has to say about poverty's effect on marriage
Our take: In recent years, sociologists have speculated numerous correlations between divorce and financial stress.

A few trends include the rate of divorce among poverty-stricken communities and the middle class, and the impacts of unemployment on divorce rates.
