Though people who are very financially successful COULD be more likely to have the kinds of personality traits that make marriage difficult. There's not a whole lot of room for an ego in a happy marriage. That’s interesting, but I don’t think it’s a cause.

You don't have to be rich to cheat or to resent your spouse for holding you back financially. However I can understand how being wealthy--or being married to someone who's wealthy--could exacerbate marital discord. People who are wealthy (or becoming wealthy) tend to work a lot, prioritizing their business over most anything else. It's stereotypical but not inaccurate to imagine the abandoned non-working spouse, bored and neglected, turning to extra-marital affairs for attention, affection, etc. Rich, bored, and/or resentful spouses also like to spend money. In addition, working spouses might feel the need to "buy" their bored/resentful spouses off with expensive gifts and lavish vacations in order to make up for their absence, neglect, or whatever. Which only leads to more resentment and marital discord--and to spouses feeling like marriage holds them back financially. Besides, survey responses on whether marriage holds you back financially might be based on previous, expected, or third-party experiences with divorce--which we all know is bad for the finances of both spouses.

I never really thought about this, but I guess considering how often celebrities and the likes get divorced this makes sense. We are still far from being wealthy and I hope it doesn't ruin our marriage. Fascinating post.
