MOSCOW, July 4 (Itar-Tass) - Most of the respondents interviewed by the All-Russia Public Opinion Poll Center (VTSIOM) said that the main reason why couples divorce is either poverty in a family or infidelity of the spouses. Both husbands and wives are equally responsible for a break-up of a family, the poll showed.
Most of the respondents, like in similar polls conducted in 1900 and in 2007, are inclined to believe that husbands and wives are equally responsible for break-up of a family. Twelve percent put most of the blame on men and external factors. Male respondents (12 percent) are inclined to blame women for ruined marriages, while female respondents (18 percent ) said that men are to blame.
Infidelity (24 percent) and poverty ( 21 percent) were the most often cited reasons for a divorce. Quarrels in a family and the reluctance to make a compromise also "help' break up a family, said 19 percent of the respondents interviewed. Couples divorced because of abuse or alcohol or drugs were mentioned by 16 percent of the respondents, while only one percent mentioned such serious factors as violence in a family, excessive influence produced by relatives, infertility, early or unequal marriages.
Jealousy and no place to live in are also serious reasons for a marriage collapse, according to three percent of the respondents.
Ten percent said they would upkeep their marriage no matter whatever the cost might be, while approximately the same number of respondents (11 percent) said that problem couples should rather divorce. The majority (48 percent) agreed that the problem whether a couple should divorce needs an individual approach in each particular case.
The public opinion poll was conducted in 130 settlements on 42 territories of the Russian Federation on June 29-30, 2013 when 1,600 respondents were interviewed.
