Interrelationships between perceived causes of divorce were investigated utilizing factor analysis. In a sample of 275 males and 336 females, seven dimensions of divorce, underlying 18 possible contributing causes, were revealed. Significant differences were found between the sexes both in the frequencies with which causes were identified and in the composition of the seven factors. This suggests the need to look beyond single causes, exploring constellations of problems separately for each sex.
