It’s no secret that a large percentage of marriages end in divorce. In fact, most marriages in the United States now end in divorce. This is a dismal fact of life in today’s day and age. With this in mind, it can be easy to jump to conclusions when having issues in your marriage, but when is it really time to end your marriage and when should you stick it out?
Signs Your Marriage Isn’t Working
Everyone’s individual situations are unique and there is no one-size-fits all way to tell if things just aren’t going to work out. However, there are a few signs you may want to look for that have commonly caused people’s relationships to fall apart without repair. These include:
- Loss of trust
- Too much conflict (i.e. excessive arguing, consistent inability to come to resolutions)
- Lack of commitment – such as, lack of interest or effort from either or both parties, loss of romance.
These signs can show that your relationship may be heading into, or already in a place where you cannot recover. Unfortunately, many couples find themselves in these situations and divorce may follow.
You may be wondering how you got into this situation and if there was anything you could do to prevent it. There are a variety of common causes of these issues including:
- Religious differences between spouses
- Financial trouble
- Getting married young
- Lack of education about marriage
These are just a few sources of conflict that may lead to irreparable difficulties and divorce. But ultimately, there might not be a way to predict or prevent divorce.
If you find yourself in a dissolving marriage it is important to find support, get your finances in order and seek legal counsel. The divorce process is emotional and challenging, no matter your situation, but seeking the right help can make everything simpler and more straightforward
