Is Your Marriage on Route to Divorce?

Posted on in Divorce

Most books and advice columns focus on saving marriages, and for a good reason: divorce is hard, often painful, and expensive. Sometimes, though, it is better to know if you should let go. Marriages that are toxic, abusive, or beyond the point of salvaging are prime examples. No amount of work would likely repair such a marriage, and staying could result in more harm than good. So how do you know if your marriage is on route to divorce? The following information may help.

Time Apart Feels Like Relief

Spending time alone or with your friends can give you the chance to socialize, de-stress, or recharge. Unfortunately, this positive influence can turn into a bad one if you are using time away to avoid time with your spouse. The same goes for spending extra time at work, at the gym, or pursuing personal interests. If these things have become more of an escape and less about the sheer enjoyment, it may be time to consider moving forward with a divorce.

One Party Has Become the Martyr

Overcoming marital problems requires commitment from both parties, not just one. If you and your spouse are having troubles and only one of you seems interested in fixing things, or only one person is willing to do the work, it may be time to end things. Relationship experts also suggest that couples call it quits if they have been working on their marriage for a year or longer with little to no progress.

Your Marriage Lacks Mutual Respect

It is one thing to be angry at or annoyed with one another. It is an entirely different story if one party does not respect the other. If you feel that your spouse simply does not respect your views, personhood, or values, it may be time to move on. This is especially true if abuse or violence are present in the marriage.

Cheating Extends Beyond a Mistake

Infidelity can happen to almost any couple, and many marriages can and do come back from an affair, but those that continuously cheat are not usually willing to work on fixing their marriage. Instead, they take for granted that the other spouse will simply take them back, no matter how many times they stray. If this is where your marriage is, you may want to consider taking the next step toward a divorce.
