You’ve been married for several years and there have been many ups and downs along the way. You had the honeymoon period in the beginning and as time went on you both faced some setbacks. This is a normal pattern for marriages to take. The important thing is that you and your spouse faced challenges together and came through the other side.
Recently, it’s started to feel like there are no good times. How do you know when the differences in your marriage are irreconcilable?
There is no more teamwork
No matter what challenges arose, you and your spouse would always face them together. Now, all you seem to do is criticize one another, even over things that are insignificant. You can’t seem to find common ground anymore and communication is practically non-existent. The teamwork that held your marriage together seems to have disappeared. This is a sign that your marriage could be in trouble.
Signs of dishonesty
Recently, your spouse has been working late all the time. Initially, you assumed that their company was just going through a busy period and they were pitching in. However, you bumped into a mutual friend and they told you that they spotted your spouse in a restaurant with a coworker. While this could be perfectly innocent, they never told you about it. Secrecy and dishonesty always have a negative impact on the marital relationship.
If you are getting the sense that your marriage is in trouble, then it’s important to think about protecting yourself. Seeking some legal guidance will help you to prepare in the event that a divorce is on the horizon.
