Couples more likely to divorce if spouse develops cervical or testicular cancer
Date:9/27/2007

the emotional rewards from the union are particularly devastating early in a relationship and that an increased care load is most difficult to accept at an age when illness is most unexpected.

Women with cervical cancer had an increased risk of divorce of 69% at age 20 years, but this risk was reduced to 19% at 60 years, implying that the effect of cervical cancer on divorce risk decreases with age, Syse said. The same tendency was seen among men with testicular cancer. The increased risk of divorce was estimated to 34% at 20 years, while it was estimated to fall 16% below the risk of the general population at 60 years.

As for why most cancers resulted in a decrease in divorce risk, Syse said a cancer diagnosis might strengthen the bonds between partners.

In addition, a serious disease may save an unsatisfactory relationship because a break-up would be considered inappropriate in such a situation, or because an expected fatal outcome will make it unnecessary, said Syse.

The study found that divorce was least likely to occur when the cancer had spread or for types of cancer that have a poor prognosis, and more likely in cancers with a good chance of recovery.
