When two people say, “I do,” they generally do not expect that
they will eventually have to untie the knot. Unfortunately, many people
do end up having to do exactly that. Why do so many once happy couples
end up having to pull the plug on their marriage? Read on to learn about
some of the most common reasons why people get divorced.
They got married for the wrong reasons: Without the proper foundation, a marriage will inevitably crumble. For
couples that marry for flimsy reasons that cannot sustain a lifelong marriage,
happily ever after will only last for a short while.
A loss of identity: Codependence is not a healthy. When one or both partners lose their identities
and do not have their own interests or opportunities to express themselves
outside of the marriage, it might feel like the marriage is erasing who
you are. One day, it will become so unbearable that divorce will seem
like the only answer.
Intimacy disappears from the relationship: When the level of intimacy begins to change in a marriage, it can trigger
the pullback of a partner and, if this goes unnoticed, it can lead to
severe intimacy estrangement. Both partners might feel unloved or unappreciated,
leading to a divorce.
An inability to resolve conflicts: Everyone argues and it is completely natural. However, if a married couple
is unable to resolve their conflicts, the anger and resentment can begin
to build up and ill feelings might linger.
There is a loss of shared interests: Being able to connect with shared interests and priorities is a key element
in a successful marriage and is just as important as having your own separate
outlets for expression. Without it, spouses will inevitably grow farther
and farther apart.
