Signs You Might be Headed for a Divorce

Deciding to move forward with a divorce can be challenging. It might not always seem clear if you should put more time into resolving your marital issues or if it is time to call it quits and focus on rebuilding a new life without your spouse. We compiled a list of signs that often indicate a marriage is headed for divorce. Of course, you know yourself and your situation best, so examine your feelings as you continue to read and ponder your choices.

Is it Time to End Your Marriage?

Most married couples will hit a rough patch in their marriage now and then, so it is not necessarily a sign in itself that a divorce is the right move for you. If your relationship is consistently on shaky ground, however, that is not a good sign and it might be time to closely examine your marriage.

Here are some signs that indicate you should consider a divorce:

  1. You are unhappy most of the time: No one is happy all the time, but if you are unhappy most of the time and frequently get involved in arguments with your spouse, this is a big red flag. If you feel like your spouse is not responsive enough or have some fundamental differences that are making peace an impossible feat in your relationship, a divorce might be the only recourse you have.
  1. You often try to avoid your spouse: Understandably, the honeymoon period does not last forever. That said, trying to avoid your spouse is a major sign that the health of your marriage substantially deteriorated. If you try to stay out more to avoid spending time with your spouse, ask yourself why and find out if there is an underlying issue that needs to be addressed.
  1. Your spouse feels more like a roommate: It is not uncommon for couples who are headed for a divorce to live separate lives before they even begin considering a divorce. If you feel like you drifted so far apart from your spouse that you feel more like roommates, maybe it is time to pull the plug.
  1. Your priorities and values are no longer aligned: It is impossible and unnecessary for partners to have totally identical interests, but if your priorities and values are vastly different, this will present some serious challenges for your marriage that you might not be able to overcome.

If you recognize one or more of these signs in your marriage and already made attempts to address these issues with fruitless results, you might want to consider a divorce. It is a tough choice to make, but sometimes it is necessary.
