Hearing your spouse utter the word divorce can be devastating for some. For others, it can lead to a sigh of relief. Many people who get divorced already knew it was inevitable based on various signs or issues in their relationships. Let's take a look at the most common warnings signs that divorce is imminent.
There will be times during your marriage where you criticize your spouse for something they've done. Where this turns into a problem is when you begin criticizing your spouse personally and not the behaviors they exhibit. This can make a relationship unbearable.
When intimacy disappears from the marriage, you may need counseling to determine why. Failing to come to terms with this problem can lead to divorce. There needs to be two levels of intimacy present for a relationship to succeed — emotional and physical. Even if one of these vanishes, you can still have big problems.
Have you shut down lately? Do you walk out in the middle of an argument? If you answered yes to either of these questions it's likely you have serious problems in your marriage. These are signs that you don't care enough about the relationship to work hard at fixing it.
When one person's views on having children changes drastically, the marriage could very well be in jeopardy. For example, maybe you got married under the pretense that you would have children. Now your spouse no longer wants children. This can be a deal breaker for many.
Divorce is not an enjoyable milestone in life. Sadly, it is something that millions of people endure each year for one reason or another. It doesn't matter why you are getting divorced. All that matters is that you are protecting your rights when you file.
