How to Tell If Your Marriage is in Trouble
Getting married is one of the highlights of life, but there are instances where misunderstandings and whatnots are so exhausting physically and emotionally that you are willing to end the relationship altogether.
Divorce can have complex legal processes involved, such as distribution of property, child custody, spousal support, and child support. So, if you really want a divorce, make sure that you are ready for all its legalities. Below are some signs that may show that getting a divorce is worth all the trouble.
Communication is non-existent
Communication is one of the key areas of relationships. If the husband and wife don’t make the effort to communicate anymore, it may be a sign that they don’t care anymore. Discussing problems, hearing each other out, and forming a connection through communication are all important aspects of a marriage.
Fights are common and violent
Maybe you stopped communicating because you have nothing to say to your partner anymore. All you can do is criticize your partner’s move. In worse instances, you can’t even stand your partner anymore. You fight over the same things repeatedly, and you dwell on those fights for a long time before you recover a bit and fight again. Your fights are also violent, in the sense that you don’t use humor anymore to lighten the mood, and you are not willing to back down just to salvage the relationship.
There is an invisible wall between you and your spouse
After fights, you tend to build a wall between you and your partner. This may be a good way to deescalate arguments, but in the long run, it just causes alienation and separation between husband and wife. In worst cases, you may even feel that your partner has turned into a stranger, as if you are living separate lives even though you are on the same roof. You would rather be alone than do anything with your partner.
You don’t trust your partner anymore
Like communication, trust is one of the cogs that make relationships work. If you have little to no trust towards your partner anymore, because of all the arguments and whatnots that you two have gone through, it may be a sign that the marriage is failing. You also have daydreams about not being with your spouse, worse, about being with someone else.
