No one in New Jersey gets married thinking that it is possible that the union will end in divorce. However, we all know that this is a possibility in many marriages. Sometimes, the realization that the relationship is headed for a divorce happens quickly. In other situations, it may take years or even decades for the couple to make the decision to call it quits. What signs might a couple look for to determine whether or not their marriage is headed for divorce?
A recent article listed several signs our readers can look for in their relationship. For starters, the article suggested that you think about how much you are arguing with your spouse. Is it happening more frequently? More than ever before? If you are, and the arguments are not getting resolved in any meaningful way, the marriage could be in serious trouble.
Another sign is the realization that you simply want different things in life than your spouse does. Maybe you had common interests and goals when you got married, but that has changed. Maybe you never did, but “opposites attract.” If you don’t share the same goals and desires as your spouse, the marriage may be headed for a divorce.
Lastly, the article pointed to how much time you spend with your spouse, and the quality of that time together. Are you still friends with your spouse? Or would you rather be anywhere else but with your spouse? If you are finding that you do not like to be around your spouse for a significant period of time, or that you simply cannot “get along” at all, the marriage may in enough trouble to consider divorce as an option.
