The Red Flags That Make Divorce Your Best Option

One does not go into a relationship with the plan for a divorce. We go into a relationship, and ultimately marriage, in the hopes of growing old together. But we never know what the future could hold and what road bumps end up destroying what was meant to last forever. Statistics bear the frightening numbers that say 40 to 50 percent of marriages took a turn towards divorce. What the numbers won’t tell you though, is what brought couples there. There are many warning signs that point to divorce, and you can learn and read more here.

Being Emotionally Distant
Fighting too much and too frequently is the cause of concern in many relationships. But heavier than that is when a couple no longer fights nor argues about the little things at all. When a couple argues, that means they still have interest in changing things for the better, but when they are apathetic towards each other and no longer care, that means they are beyond the point of mending the relationship. If you believe that this is you, read more here.

Abuse Of Any Kind
Abuse looks different for different people and could be any of the following: physical, verbal, emotional, mental, and sexual. If your partner starts to exhibit abusive behavior, confront them about it, not make excuses for the person. If you are afraid to confront your abusive spouse or feel as though getting out of it is impossible, find the legal help you need and read more here.

Unfaithfulness
Depending on your values and who you ask, discovering that your spouse is having an affair does not mean you must cut ties immediately. If both of you are willing to put an end to any existing affairs and go through marriage counseling, then there may still be hope for your marriage. But do not forget your worth as a person who deserves to be fully loved and given value and remember that having children with your spouse does not obligate you to stay with him/her.

Problems With Addiction
If your spouse is struggling with addiction, that doesn’t mean you have to drop them right away. But if your spouse is not interested in ever getting treatment, then that will only cause serious problems down the road. If you are confused about which road to take, read more here.

We have named above a few of the various warning signs in a marriage that could possibly lead to divorce. If you relate to any of the situations above, just remember to take the time for decision-making, and that you are worthy, you are brave, and you can start again.
