Study Finds Impotency as Major Reason for Divorce

A study led by a group of doctors has shed light on the reasons for divorce. The biggest reason that they deciphered for the same was impotency.

There has been a rise in number of divorce in India. Researchers have linked impotency with the same. It says that around 20 % to 30 % marriages in India are breaking up because of dissatisfaction in sexual life.

Anup Dhir, a reconstruction surgeon and andrologist said, "The analysis revealed that of the 2,500 men suffering from erectile dysfunction, one in five was divorced while the marriages of one in 10 were on the verge of breaking over their physical health".

This study was conducted by Alpha One Andrology Group, which is an association of doctors dealing in sex-related problems in men. They followed almost 2,500 Indian men suffering from erectile dysfunction or impotence.

Authors of the study discovered that the erectile dysfunction affects 50 % of men over the age of 40 and 10 % of men below 40. According to the authors of the study, impotency has been largely misunderstood by the couples. Couples usually have sex 58 times in a year, which is approximately more than once in a week. If the number reduces that means there lies dissatisfaction in marriage, says Dhir.

The doctors have attributed existing impotency problem to sedentary lifestyle, hypertension and busy schedule.
