Signs It Could Be Time For Divorce

There is no cut-and-dry formula for determining when a marriage is over and divorce is imminent; every couple is different and has unique problems. Perhaps even more importantly, every couple has unique responses to problems. What may be considered a deal-breaker for one couple may be considered fixable by another. However, for many couples, the following problems are indicators that a consultation with a divorce lawyer is forthcoming.


Infidelity is among the most common reasons to get a divorce. When one spouse cheats, it robs the marriage of trust. Unfortunately, infidelity is all too prevalent. Infidelity can cause the other spouse to feel betrayed, angry, and rejected. It is often difficult, if not impossible, for the spouse to learn to trust his or her partner again. Some couples opt for divorce immediately after infidelity is revealed. Other couples try marriage counseling after infidelity; however, feelings of resentment may linger for months or years and may ultimately lead to a divorce.


For a marriage to thrive, both spouses must be able to communicate honestly and openly. Some marriages end in divorce because the spouses realize they no longer have personal, meaningful conversations with each other; rather, they only communicate about mundane, day-to-day tasks. Other couples turn to divorce lawyers because efforts to communicate consistently end in fighting.


Another sign that it could be time for a divorce is if one or both spouses feel disengaged from the marriage and disconnected from each other. In a successful marriage, both spouses work together as a team, sharing the same goals and values. Disengagement can occur when one spouse no longer supports the other in lifelong ambitions or when the spouses act more like roommates than a married couple.
