You never want to leave a marriage thinking you didn’t do everything you possibly could do to save the marriage. But remember that not every marriage is meant to be saved. It is no surprise many married couples refrain from getting a divorce for far longer than they should.
Why You May Put Off a Divorce
There are several reasons and here are just a few reasons you may refrain…
- Fear of the unknown
- Not wanting to disrupt you or your children’s lives
- Financial reasons
- Sadness at the loss of a relationship
- Loss of Identity as husband and wife
- Loss of friends and your social life
Clear Indicators It’s Time To Get a Divorce
However certain instances are clear indicators it is time to get a divorce or at the least separate from your partner for some time.
- Abuse of any kind
- You truly do not want to be with each other anymore
- Therapy failed to make a difference
- Infidelity that cannot be forgiven
- Criminal activity
- Lack of communication
Most times the primary reason for divorce is not being in love anymore. Ultimately, the decision to divorce is entirely up to you and your spouse. No one can make this decision for you. Do you want to live with this person for the rest of your life? If you don’t, then decide to file for divorce but try to do it along. Make sure you have the counsel of a good divorce attorney who you can trust.
