The risk of a divorce triggers a precautionary‐savings motive. However, this motive is weaker when individuals can invest in owner‐occupied homes because homeowners' higher savings partially substitute for precautionary savings. When young, the larger asset accumulation due to divorce‐risk‐induced precautionary savings enables households to buy homes earlier, whereas the presence of transaction costs leads to reduced homeownership for middle‐aged and older households when divorce risk goes up.</dcterms:abstract> <dcterms:issued>2019-08</dcterms:issued> <dc:contributor>Fischer, Marcel</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Khorunzhina, Natalia</dc:contributor> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
