The 5 Warning Signs That May Lead to Divorce If Not Resolved
Don’t end up caught off guard if your spouse tells you that he/she wants a divorce; know what warning signs to look for so you are not taken by surprise.
- Cheating/Infidelity: This is one of the top predictors of divorce. When one partner is cheating, there usually is a bigger problem. The bigger problem can equate to “unmet needs” or other issues in the marriage that remain unresolved. It is essential to get to the bottom of the reason behind the infidelity to determine if your marriage issues are resolvable or not.
- Lack of Communication: If you and your spouse barely talk or cannot have deep conversations about important issues; then you need to figure out what can be done to change the breakdown in communication. If you are committed to your marriage, then seek professional help if you are not able to come to a resolution with your spouse. Effective and open communication is the backbone of any successful relationship.
- Money Matters: A lot of marriages break up due to money problems. Whether it’s that one spouse spends too much, or the other spouse does not manage money well; it can definitely lead to conflict. Furthermore, if couples do not see eye-to-eye on money and have different views on money; it can cause friction in a marriage.
- Always Fighting: Arguing and fighting is another major cause of divorce. It causes unnecessary stress and if it keeps happening all too frequently, one partner is bound to get frustrated and want out of the marriage. Seeking professional help to see if this is an issue that can be resolved may thwart off divorce. If there is no resolve; then it may be better to part ways for the sake of everyone’s well-being.
- Lack of Health: This can have many different meanings. Lack of health can pertain to letting yourself go and stop taking care of yourself and your health; resulting in weight gain. Weight gain can lead to depression or intimacy issues. In rare cases, it can also mean that one partner is ill, and the other partner chooses to exit the marriage instead of staying and taking care of their spouse.
