Signs that you might be headed for a divorce

On Behalf of | Feb 14, 2024 | Family Law |

The struggles that lead a couple to consider divorce often begin much earlier than the final decision. Couples in Connecticut struggling in their relationship should consider several signs that might lead them to end their marriage.

Factors for divorce

While each couple’s journey to divorce is unique, some factors are often listed in divorce proceedings. Some of these include:

  • Financial struggles
  • Infidelity
  • Miscommunication
  • Addiction
  • Emotional and physical abuse

Early signs of struggle in marriage

In many marriages, there are signs that the marriage is struggling enough to be on the path to divorce, but early in the relationship, they might be subtle and missed by both spouses. It might be possible for some couples to work on these issues if they can recognize the signs. Some of these signs include:

  • Constant blaming of the other person
  • Lack of communication between the spouses about serious issues
  • An ongoing expectation that the other person will change, and issues will be resolved
  • A failure to resolve any issues between the spouses

What to do if you recognize signs that your marriage is struggling?

When spouses struggle to communicate healthily and instead find themselves in a never-ending cycle of fights, blame and distance, it might be difficult to find a way out. It might be time for reflection for both spouses, about their roles in the conflict, their actions that might contribute to this and how they want to move forward.

Deciding to seek a divorce is difficult for everyone involved. However, if your marriage continues to struggle and the attempts to work on these issues continue to fail, it might be time to make a decision. If that is where you find yourself, you should begin to prepare for the next step, gathering your personal and financial documents and creating a plan that works best for you.
