Know when to end a marriage

On Behalf of | Jan 4, 2020 | Divorce, Firm News |

Georgia residents may know they have problems in their marriage. However, they may not know when it is time to seriously consider divorce. There are a few indications that a divorce might be a good idea. 

Some people may think that fighting is a sign of a bad marriage. According to Fatherly.com, failing to fight can be an indication that a divorce is a good idea. This is because the lack of arguments may indicate that people are no longer emotionally invested in the marriage and have already given up. Sometimes couples might try counseling and find that nothing works to resolve the problems in their marriage. When people have tried several different methods of working things out but find that nothing works, it may be time to consider a divorce. 

It may be time for a divorce when couples stop thinking of themselves as a team. The Oprah Magazine says that people typically start using words like “I” instead of “we” when they no longer feel invested in the marriage. Additionally, divorce may be a good idea when people start thinking about leaving the marriage but are afraid to take action. In some situations, some people may find themselves hiding part of their personality from their spouse and this might indicate that the marriage is beyond repair. 

Sometimes people may start planning for their independence but tell themselves they are not ready for divorce. Some people might look for a different job or they may open a bank account in their name only. Although some people may not want to think about divorce yet, these steps can be signs that someone is ready to leave the marriage.
