Separation Rate High For Couples Dealing With Miscarriage

The entry into parenthood can bring a couple closer together than they ever were before. But when a pregnancy ends before it's run its full course, it can have a devastating effect on the couple.

In the first study of its kind, researchers at the University of Michigan found that couples who endure a miscarriage together are 22 percent more likely to separate up to three years after the loss. According to the study, those who go through a stillbirth have a 40 percent higher risk of breaking up, even up to nine years after the loss. Though statistics vary, it is estimated that approximately 20 to 25 percent of pregnancies end in miscarriage, meaning that a significant number of marriages could be at risk. Families going through such traumatic events need all of the love and support they can get. For some ideas on how to help friends and family experiencing these tragedies, see what LilSugar readers had to say here.
