Female Soldiers Often Divorced

"Enlisted women are three times more likely to be divorced, and thus more likely to be a single parent [than enlisted men]."

From here.

Some of this is probably due to the fact that the military is the only employer that compensates soldiers with more children living with them more that those with fewer children living with them. It may also have something to do with gender role expectations.
