A new survey has revealed that a majority of married couples who go through long-term separations cannot afford the expense of going through a divorce. Over 7,000 people participated in the study, which was conducted by the National Longitudinal Survey of Youth 1979. A total of 49 percent of participants had left a first marriage and 80 percent of these separations ended in divorce. The survey also found the reconciliation after separation is often unsuccessful, with half of the couples participating in the study going on to divorce.
