Some jobs obviously cause more friction. My husband's job is ranked in at number two! I can completely understand why it is ranked so high on the list. How do you think he makes such great money? He flirts. He bats his baby blues, flashes his charming smile and makes people laugh. I could see how this could frustrate a partner. Lucky for us, I've been in his shoes, I know what it takes to come home with more than a few singles in your pocket and it doesn't bother me. But it took me a long time to separate that it was his 'job' and had no reflection on how he felt about me.

So what are the worst jobs for relationships anyways? According to, these are the top 15 jobs with the highest divorce rates:

  1. Dancers and Choreographers: Divorce Rate of 43.05%
