Bertus Preller Shares the Top Three Reasons for Divorce in South Africa
“Infidelity or adultery, more commonly known as cheating, is near the top of the list of reasons for divorcing in South Africa. Infidelity undermines the root of the relationship – trust,” Bertus Preller told Nivashni Nair from The Times.
Preller, divorce attorney and author of Everyone’s Guide to Divorce and Separation, was explaining what the top causes of divorce are in South Africa. Other common causes are a lack of communication and abuse.
Cheating may no longer be one of the main reasons for divorce in the UK, but in South Africa infidelity is still among the top three causes of marital break-ups.
A UK-based company, Co-operative Legal Services, has found that couples today are half as likely to list cheating as the reason for divorce as they were 40 years ago.
