    but I think you're getting warmer about why these marriages fall apart so often. Not having enough money is extremely stressful, even apart from the other problems you mention. If a relationship isn't healthy in the first place, then the additional, unending stress of not being able to make ends meet can easily be the tipping point. People under stress lose their tempers and say things they don't mean. Resentment piles up on both sides and one day the whole thing blows up.
