Signs Of Divorce
Most married people think they would know if their marriage was headed for divorce. They might look for major signs like money problems, abuse, addiction, and infidelity.
However, there are other signs that your marriage is in trouble. They’re not always so easy to notice, so we might ignore them, causing our marriage to really take a nosedive.
By understanding the signs of a failing marriage, you can seek the right kind of help to get your marriage back on track or you can decide to get a divorce and move on. Here are some warning signs to look for.
You’re Not Happy
This is a major sign that you should not overlook. Sure, marriage isn’t all rainbows and sunshine, but if you and your spouse are constantly fighting and you’re not getting what you need out of the marriage, then it’s time to have a serious talk about the future of your marriage. Is your spouse on board or not?
There’s a Lot of Negativity
Researchers say that happy couples should have 20 positive interactions for every negative interaction—a 20:1 ratio. So if it seems as though that ratio is reversed when it comes to your marriage, and things aren’t improving, then it’s time to pull the plug on the marriage.
Conversations Are Difficult
You can’t communicate with your spouse without a full-fledged argument. He ignores you or accuses you of nagging. She’s always yelling and can never agree with you. If you both have started to ignore each other because of difficult conversations, then you need to improve your communication skills or find out the root cause of the issues.
You Avoid Your Spouse
Happy couples should want to see each other, especially after being apart all day. However, if you’re doing what you can to ignore your spouse and are always finding excuses not to come home, then something’s seriously wrong.
You Live Like Roommates
If there’s no communication or intimacy when you two are around each other, then that’s a major red flag. Marriages should have some romantic element involved, so if your partner’s existence is more like that of a roommate, then it’s time to get out.
Your Instincts Tell You to Divorce
Sometimes there’s no glaring reason why you should divorce. Maybe it’s just a gut feeling. If your instincts are telling you to get out, talk with your friends and family and see what they think. If they feel the same way, start packing and call a lawyer.
Seek Help for Your Divorce
The line between marriage and divorce is not always so easy to see. There’s no need to stay married if you’re not happy with the relationship.
