I actually just read about this in my Psychology class. The Divorce rate is 60% in North America. Your list is pretty accurate. Most people that are in their 20s are getting married and starting familes, but as all of these extra things (a spouse, career, children, bills, etc.) add up, the strain of life gets harder and the satisfaction is marriage depletes. Only after 24 years of marriage does the marriage continue to increase in satisfaction. Another factor in the success of a marriage are based off of their attachment factors (how their parents marriage was and how their parents treat them substantially incorporate itself into adulthood romantic relationships) and also their college education (college graduates have a higher success rate than those who do not attend college, usually because of the financial stability) Women are more likely to initiate divorce usually because of infidelity, physical/emotional abuse, and drug/alcohol abuse. Men are more likely to divorce because of feeling used/underappreciated, lack of intimacy, and lack of privacy. So you basically were on the right track, and those other factors that you listed are probably correct on some level.0
