DIY CAUSES DIVORCE!
Recent polls have found that unpredictably, DIY which is often known to aid happy relationships, is also a now a leading cause for divorce across the globe, as home renovations increase stress and arguments.
Over 50% of those surveyed by home improvement website Houzz.com, responded that their renovation process caused a significant amount of stress in their marriages. In fact, approximately 12% of those polled indicated that the stress of renovation caused them to consider or pursue divorce or separation.
One thing relationship experts recommend is that couples who are considering home makeovers consider rooms for each couple to decorate individually, as this is known to take some of the stress out of the process as couples are not forced to attempt to mix their personal styles.

- Lack of Communication
