There are all kinds of issues that may arise during your marriage, but most of them won’t be serious enough to have the potential to lead to a divorce. That said, there are some signs that your marriage is headed for rocky times and that a divorce might be in your best interests.
Knowing the kinds of things that could signal the end of your marriage may help you prepare, so you can focus on yourself and your life as a single person. Here are four signs to watch out for.
- You don’t trust your spouse
The first sign that you may want to consider divorcing your spouse is that you no longer trust them. If you cannot rebuild that trust, you may never be comfortable in your marriage.
- You’re not intimate
Not all couples are intimate, but they are usually affectionate towards each other at the very least. If you aren’t feeling loved and wanted, it’s worth exploring couples counseling. If your spouse isn’t interested, it may be time to end your relationship.
- You can’t see a future with your spouse
Another thing to consider is if you no longer see a future with your spouse. Maybe you imagine being with someone else, or perhaps you just envision a future alone. Whatever it is, if you don’t see your spouse there, that’s an issue.
- You don’t want to work on your marriage
Finally, if you know there are issues in your marriage but you’re not interested in working on them, it may be time to cut your losses and walk away. It takes two committed individuals to work on a marriage and make it work. If you’re not committed, it may be the right time to say goodbye.
These are four signs that it’s time to consider divorcing. While it’s possible to save your marriage in some cases, you both need to be willing to work together to do so. If you’re not in a situation where that’s possible, then it may be the right decision to move on separately from your spouse in the future.
