3 Professions Divorced Men Should Never Marry

Now that some time has passed since your divorce, you are likely thinking about dating again. You may even be formulating a mental list of your ex-wife’s traits you want to make sure to avoid in a new relationship. Likely missing from that list is profession. After all, what difference does a person’s job make when it comes to compatibility?

If you’re looking to get married again, it makes a huge difference. Different professions have wildly different divorce rates. A woman’s job can make a big difference between future marital bliss or another trip to divorce court. While these woman may be fine to date short term, here are the top three professions to avoid at all costs if you plan to marry again.

Dancers and entertainers

Love attending the ballet or modern dance performances? Do you easily fall for singers and musicians? Cancel your season tickets and don’t go to the performance tonight. Dancers and choreographers top the divorce charts with a nearly 45% divorce rate with other entertainers coming in at a 30% divorce rate. Perhaps it’s the constant travel and long tours or the close quarters with fellow performances. Whatever the reason, a large percentage of entertainers make it a point to perform their swan song in divorce court. If you are looking for a long term relationship, look for someone who doesn’t work in the limelight.

Massage therapists

Dating a massage therapist sounds like a great idea. They are professionally trained in touch after all. Think about how great the last massage you had was and now imagine being married to a therapist and getting that type of treatment at home on a regular basis. Sound like the start of a wonderful life? Sorry to pour a bucket of ice water on your dreams, but massage therapists have a 40% divorce rate. That’s a knot that’s not going to get worked out. Keep your appointment for the massage, but have drinks with someone else if you want to find a marriage mate.


What could be more awesome than dating a bartender? Outgoing, a great listener, and able to mix a drink fit for the gods; a bartender seems to complete the list for the perfect wife. That is until she mixes you a tall glass of divorce papers. With a 40% divorce rate, you may find yourself on the wrong end of last call if you marry a bartender. Order another round of drinks, but make dinner plans with someone else for a lasting marriage.

Don’t lose hope though, there are plenty of professions which offer a low divorce rate. Scientists, engineers, medical specialists, and farmers made the bottom of the list with divorce rates all well below 10%. It appears that complex work leads to great stability in marriage.
