Not every marriage will end happily ever after. There will be fighting. There will be infidelity. There will be irreconcilable differences. All of this can add up to one or both spouses agreeing that it is time to go their separate ways. It doesn't mean the marriage was a failure. It just means that the two people are no longer compatible. Here's how to tell if divorce is the right step.
The lack of effort to share common interests, or any interest, with each other is a sign that things have taken a wrong turn in your marriage. Couples that share in each other's interests, or find common ground, will be able to do a lot of things together.
Has there been a lot of fighting about starting a family? Did one of you change your mind about having children? This can be a major deal breaker when it comes to staying with someone for the rest of your life.
When the two of you stop working together as a team, the marriage is likely unable to be saved. Marriage takes a lot of teamwork to succeed. Making a major decision on your own can affect your finances and the emotional health of your spouse.
Mutual respect is an important part of a successful marriage. If your spouse no longer shows you respect, it might be time to seek out a divorce.
If your marriage exhibits any of the signs listed in this post it might be time to sit down with an experienced family law attorney to discuss your options. Divorce is likely in your future if you've already tried counseling, and you seem to be getting nowhere.
