A new study published in Sweden found that the divorce risk is 40 percent higher for couples whose commute to work is longer than 45 minutes. The study says the risk of divorce increases and the risk is the highest in the first few years of commuting.

The disadvantages are obvious: Increased stress, missed social activities, less family time and maybe a disgruntled spouse.

But believe it or not, some commuters point to the commuting advantages, such as higher income, advancement opportunities at work and job satisfaction.
