When couples get married, they rarely ever expect their relationship to
ultimately end in
divorce. However, divorce is still relatively common and there are many reasons
why spouses decide they can no longer make their marriage work. Continue
reading to find out more about the most common reasons behind divorce.
The Most Common Reasons Behind Divorce
Marriages can end for any number of reasons, but some occur more frequently
Below is a list of some of the most common reasons why marriages often
end in divorce:
- When spouses marry at a young age, it leaves a lot of room for personal
growth and, unfortunately, sometimes that growth drives spouses apart
instead of bringing them together. When young couples get married, the
chances of their marriage ending in divorce are substantially higher.
- Money may not be everything, but it can certainly put a strain on a marriage.
When spouses live in poverty or have a modest income, problems can arise
that may lead to a divorce.
- Sex is not the only glue that holds a marriage together, but it is a way
for couples to connect. When physical intimacy is totally absent from
a marriage, it is often indicative of a deeper problem in the relationship.
- Substance abuse can cause serious problems in any type of relationship,
especially in a marriage. If your spouse is addicted to drugs or alcohol,
you may be facing some serious struggles that may make it impossible for
you to keep your marriage together.
- An affair may not necessarily be a death sentence in itself, but it can
erode the trust between spouses, which can be near impossible to repair.
If your spouse had an affair and you cannot move past it or forgive it,
divorce may be the best option for you.
