Financial issues are responsible for about 40% of the total number of divorces in Qatar, a study by the Family Consulting Centre has revealed.
Factors such as defaulting on repayment of bank loans, debts resulting from the high cost of marriage and extravagant spending eventually lead to a rise in the divorce rate, it was observed.
Speaking to local Arabic daily Arrayah, experts and locals said while bank loans can speed up the process of marriage, it can also make young people take hasty decisions on their partners.
Some senior locals have called for more efforts to spread awareness among young people on the need to know more about marital life and how to make proper decisions and choices in this respect.
They suggested that potential couples undergo counselling on related issues and get introduced to ways in which to manage finances without exceeding the means available.
