Choosing to end a marriage is not an easy decision to make, but sometimes
it is necessary, especially if the relationship is becoming increasingly
toxic and unhealthy. However, it can be difficult to know when to pull
the plug and when to keep trying to make things work. Although the choice
is ultimately yours alone to make, we compiled a list of signs to help
guide you through this overwhelming and stressful decision.
Making the Right Choice
It is admirable to try your best to make your marriage work, but there
are some situations in which staying with your spouse will do more harm
If you recognize any of the following red flags in your marriage, consider
reaching out to a divorce attorney:
Your interactions are frequently negative: If you and your spouse are constantly at each other’s throats and
positive interactions are few and far between, this is a pretty strong
indication that your marriage is in trouble.
Your arguments are excessively nasty: Arguments are bound to happen in any relationship, but if arguments with
your spouse are aggressive, unnecessarily offensive, and tend to hit below
the belt, you might want to consider contacting a divorce attorney. Couples
need to be able to resolve their arguments respectfully, without slinging
personal insults at each other. Otherwise, you will reach a point of no
return in your relationship.
You have major fundamental differences: No two people can agree on everything at all times, but if you and your
spouse have major fundamental differences, you will begin to grow apart
instead of growing together. For example, if one of you wishes to have
a large family while the other is more career-oriented, it might not be
possible to have a future together.
Marriage counseling failed: In some cases, no matter how much effort you put into a marriage, it is
impossible to make it work. If you tried marriage counseling and could
not resolve some of your issues, you probably reached a dead-end.
One or both of you were unfaithful: Infidelity is something many marriages are unable to recover from and
it is often a big indicator that a spouse is deeply unsatisfied with their
marriage. Moreover, when a spouse is unfaithful it creates a lot of distrust
and, unfortunately, this trust is irreparable.
