Not all marriages will end happily ever after. That’s the sad truth about the world today. People fall out of love with each other. They fall in love with others. They have arguments that seem to never end. Money problems get in the way of the relationship. Ideas of life together change. All of these are reasons that a marriage can end in divorce. But, do you know the signs of an impending divorce?
Take a look at some of those signs:
Couples that begin to drift apart and don’t care about doing so will likely wind up getting a divorce. This includes a lack of support from your spouse and the inability to help each other emotionally.
Communication is the sticking point to every relationship. When communication fails, so will the marriage. The inability to speak with each other about your problems, worries, concerns, fear and other issues can be a deal breaker.
Have you started making excuses so you don’t have to go home at the end of the day? This is a big sign that your marriage is in trouble and might be treading water.
Do you put too many people ahead of your spouse in your life? Your spouse should be a top priority in your life at all times. That doesn’t mean you cannot focus on others, but friends, co-workers and other should not be placed above your spouse.
Do you or your spouse go out a lot without the other? When you stop hanging out with each other, even just to go out with common friends, there’s a lot of trouble brewing in your marriage.
The signs of an impending divorce mentioned in this post are the most commonly found in marriages. There are others that can crop up in your relationship. Just be sure that you know what to look for, so you are not taken by surprise.
