If you hit some serious bumps in the road in your marriage, you may be wondering if you should consider cutting the cord and filing for a divorce. Of course, no marriage is without some problems and it would be unrealistic to think you will never have arguments, but sometimes it can be difficult to know when to keep fighting and when to move on.
Is Your Marriage Coming to an End?
Ultimately, no one can make the decision for you when it comes to ending your marriage. However, if you are unsure if your problems spell out disaster or if it is time to put in a little more effort, it may be helpful to review some of the biggest signs that divorce may be the best choice.
Here are some common signs that your marriage may be headed for a divorce:
- You often feel unhappy: It sounds obvious, but people often do not realize how unhappy they are and chalk it up to the fact that all marriages have problems. Although no one is happy all the time, if you have been unhappy for a long period of time and forgot what it feels like to be happy in your marriage, it may be time to call it quits.
- You avoid your spouse: Spouses should generally be happy to see each other, so if you find that you often look for ways to avoid your spouse, this is a big sign that there is trouble in your marriage that you may not be able to fix.
- You feel like roommates: If you feel like you are living separate lives, despite living in the same home, it may resemble a roommate situation rather than a marriage.
- You do not share the same values anymore: It is common in marriage, especially long-term marriages, for spouses to change and grow. That said, if you are growing apart instead of together, you may find that you no longer have the same values or goals, which can be a deal-breaker for a marriage.
If you recognize two or more signs from this list, you may want to consider a divorce. The list is not exhaustive, however, so even if you do not recognize any of these signs in your marriage, take some time to examine your situation and if it is time to end it.
