There have been studies in the past when it comes to brain injuries and how they impact the future stability of marriages. Many studies suggest that most couples will find themselves divorcing within a short time frame. However, researchers are now finding that these statistics are greatly varied. In fact, some of these statistics vary so much from study to study that the ratio is 15% to 78% when it comes to divorce rates. This certainly proves that not every study should be taken for the truth at face value.
- Studies have historically shown that divorce after a TBI was almost inevitable.
- A lot of times the divorce takes place because the spouse does not have any support outside of their spouse’s family.
- Many facilities will help your family engage in therapies related to a TBI so that they feel included.
“A comparison of all divorce rates reported within the TBI literature reveals widely varied findings, with studies reporting breakdown percentages ranging from 15% to 78%.”
