I'm doing a short story and I was wondering if any psychology studies have been done that broke marriage problems down into a list of reasons, eg. there are 9 main reasons why marriage fails; lack of respect, cheating, bad communication, etc, etc.

I've been searching online and can only find tabloid magazine type lists of why a marriage might fail. I'd like a more academic list if possible.

I found this book - - which looks good but there's no hard list of X amount of reasons, I could gather a ballpark figure from it though if needed.

Thanks for any help.
