London, Jan 18 (UNI) And they lived happily ever after for the fear of financial and emotional hardships-- is how the real life story ends.
A new survey revealed that as many as half of all marriages in Britain were unhappy, but millions of men and women would not walk away for fear of financial and emotional hardship.
The study revealed that 56 per cent of people admitted they were not completely happy in their relationship-- and more than half said they had considered divorce.
Money worries were the reason behind 29 per cent of the respondents staying in a doomed marriage while it was the fear of losing their home for another 42 per cent.
Thirty-seven per cent said they were staying because of their children. The survey, commissioned by Seddons solicitors after a rush of New Year divorce applications, showed 30 per cent of men are scared that they would have to be without their children, The Telegraph reported.
More than half also admit they would miss the financial security that comes from being with their husband or wife, and the same number say they would stay for the sake of the family unit.
