The question isn’t if your marriage will end in divorce but rather when will the divorce take place? I know that sounds pretty harsh on my part but I have got a 50% chance of being correct. That’s if you believe the current statistics regarding the rate of divorce. It’s not possible to be 100% accurate but there are some behaviors that are consistently present in relationships that end in divorce.
Have you ever thought about leaving your spouse? If you haven’t I applaud your commitment to your spouse and family. You also are not normal. You are better than most spouses. You see, for most couples there are good days and not so good days in their relationship. On the not so good days, the thought of leaving or being left is appealing. Don’t feel bad if you have had those thoughts from time to time. It’s quite normal to think about being single again.
I have listed below a few reasons why your marriage might be heading to divorce court. The good news is that you can change the direction of your marriage and avoid breaking up your marriage.
3 Reasons Why Your Marriage Is Headed To Divorce Court
You Have Given Up – If you or your spouse has thrown in the towel it’s a clear sign that your marriage won’t last. Once you have decided that your marriage is doomed, you will stop caring. When you don’t care about something it usually gets ignored and before you know it you find no purpose for it. You tend to get rid of things you find no purpose for.
Your Hearts Are Disconnected – This one is a little difficult to gauge because it involves emotions. Spouses are good at hiding emotions and can go years pretending to be connected when in fact there is no connection. Sure you look like a married couple and act like one on the outside but deep down inside the connection has been terminated. The fire has been extinguished and there is not enough spark to re-ignite the connection.
There Is No Reason For You To Stay Together – Couples find reasons to stay together even if they have given up and their hearts are disconnected. It might be the children or perhaps financial reasons. However, when there is nothing keeping the couple together it’s more likely that they will go the divorce route. Unfortunately if spouses are unhappy and not bound together by anything divorce is a logical option.
It takes an effort to care about your marriage and fight to keep it together. I understand when you are frustrated and feel like you are fighting a losing battle. However, giving up must be the last resort. Divorce should not be pursued just because it’s the easy way out. Divorce is much harder than spouses think. If kids are involved, it can affect their future and your family legacy. If you are considering divorce, please proceed with caution.
