It is an unfortunate fact, but many married people have, at one time or another, had thoughts about divorcing their spouse. Even the best marriages have their rocky patches at times. But if you find yourself in a marriage that seems to be more rocky than smooth, odds are you are thinking about divorce quite a bit. So, how do you know if there is still a chance to make things right or if it is time for you and your spouse to go your separate ways? If these five things are a part of your marriage, you should give serious thought to getting a divorce.
The occasional squabble in a marriage is to be expected, but if you are always fighting, this is very bad sign. This is particularly true if arguments go off topic and lead to name-calling or personal insults. Even if you are not always having full-fledged arguments, there may be frequent negative interactions, which over time can be detrimental.
Different Values are Causing Issues
When two people are in love and want to get married, it can be very easy to ignore values. Often they are not talked about until it is too late. If, for example, you are career-focused and want to achieve as much work success as possible, while your spouse is looking forward to starting a family, this could be problematic. If neither of you is willing to bend or compromise, there is almost no point in talking about it and divorce may be the only option.
This is obviously a big one. With some couples, this does not automatically mean the marriage has to end, and eventually this is something they can get past. Through marriage counseling or other support services, a couple may discover that they can make things work. However, because this is such a heated issue, someone else may not be capable of forgiveness and might decide that divorce is the only option.
Counseling Isn’t Working
A couple that is having trouble should think about seeing a counselor. Seeking help from a skilled professional and getting objective guidance can be very beneficial. But in order for marriage counseling to be effective, each person has to want it to work. If one person is not dedicated, there is almost no chance for success.
Lack of Commitment
A good marriage is not a one-way street; both people have to contribute equally. If one person has checked out mentally and is just going through the motions, he or she just does not care if the marriage succeeds or fails. When someone has thrown in the towel, there is little that can be done to save the marriage.
