Being stuck in a marriage when you don’t know if it’s still viable is a challenge. For men and women who are in this position, there’s often some thought about whether they should leave or not. The answer to that question isn’t always easy to determine.
Your marriage might not last if any of these are true:
Your spouse betrayed you or you feel alone
Many marriages end because one spouse did something that let the other person down. This could be betrayal, such as having an affair, but there are other possibilities. Feeling like you’re alone or unloved because your partner isn’t spending time with you and is out with friends is another example of disappointment that could lead to a divorce.
You fantasize about a single life
Dreaming or fantasizing about a life without your spouse is a sure sign that the marriage is in trouble. People who are in a happy marriage dream about the future with their spouse. The fantasies could be because you think you’ll be in a better position without your spouse.
You don’t bother arguing anymore
This one might surprise some people because they may think they’ll argue more before the end of the marriage. When you don’t feel like arguing over things that you once would have, there’s a good chance that you’ve emotionally checked out of the marriage already. This means that divorce is imminent.
Anyone who’s considering divorce should learn as much as they can about what to expect. There are various aspects of the split that you have to think about. Make sure that you have someone who can explain the important points to you and help you learn your options.
