Potential divorce? What signs to look for in your marriage

Unfortunately, married couples within Washington and around the country have divorce rates at about 39%. Why is divorce so common, and why don’t people attempt to fix their issues before it’s too late? The fact is that many people simply do not know about certain signs that may indicate a divorce is imminent. The following includes a list of signs to look out for that could indicate a possible divorce.

Constant negative interactions

Married couples certainly have their bad days, but if you are noticing that those bad days are becoming bad weeks and months, there may be an underlying issue with your marriage. Constant negative interactions with your spouse are never a good thing and should be dealt with as soon as possible before a divorce is the only option left.

Family pressure

If you are constantly being told by your family that there is something wrong in your relationship, you may want to pay attention to them. Even if you don’t agree, it is important to hear family members out as you may be missing certain information.

Roommates more than a married couple

Are you sleeping in separate rooms or only interacting to speak about rent or food? These are the actions of roommates and not a married couple. It is important to catch these behaviors on time as it can be difficult to break the habit. All this begins by opening up to the other person about the issue.

Although understanding the signs of a divorce may help you avoid it, the fact is that it’s not always a success. If this is the case, you may need professional help thinking about how to protect yourself and your interests. Bringing in an attorney may help you assess whether divorce is the right option.
