4 major reasons couples get divorced

On Behalf of | Jul 25, 2022 | Divorce

You may have been with your spouse recently and realized you no longer want to be with them. You can’t quite put your finger on it, but whatever the problem may be, you decided you want a divorce – many people may feel this way. 

So, why do many people get divorced? You may see your situation reflected below:

1. There’s little or no communication

It is often said that communication is key to a happy, healthy marriage. But, that may not be the case for you. The communication (or lack of communication) between you and your spouse may be causing problems in your marriage. This is one of the many reasons people seek divorce.

2. There’s no intimacy (and not just sexually)

You and your spouse may have spent a lot of time dating, watching movies, bonding and cuddling before marriage. Now, there seems to be a lack of intimacy you once had – and can’t seem to revive it. No intimacy in your marriage may be causing you to seek new experiences.

3. There are financial problems caused by one spouse

Some people find they’ve married someone that’s taken on a ton of debt. Your spouse’s debt may be burning a hole in your savings and income, causing frustration in your marriage. You may be pushing for divorce to regain financial independence.

4. There are trust issues caused by bad behavior or affairs

You may have found your spouse with another person, they were financially abusing you or they were mistreating your family. While you dealt with these issues at the time, they may have broken your trust with your spouse. A continued lack of trust may be pushing you away from your marriage.

Every reason for divorce is unique. You may need to know your options when looking to secure a new life for yourself after divorce.
