Top signs of trouble in a marriage

Marriage is a partnership. Generally, this partnerships is intended to help foster a healthy relationship between two individuals, a relationship where each partner can feel supported and loved. Although many marriages may begin this way, approximately half falter.

The divorce rate in the United States continues to hover around 50 percent. Since divorce has been around for a couple of generations, relationship experts have plenty of data to pull from in an attempt to figure out common causes and provide some tips to avoid a split. Experts have found that there are some recurring themes that a marriage is headed towards divorce. These signs often appear early in a relationship. Proactive partners can use the signs to begin discussions before the issues build to the breaking point. 

A recurring theme in the list of common red flags for relationship trouble is communication. Top triggers listed by these professionals include repeatedly arguing over the same things, feeling criticized when sharing thoughts and feelings with a partner and a lack of argument resolution. Instead of arguing about common issues like who should clean the kitchen or how a family budget should be structured, couples may build a healthier relationship by taking the time to sit down and work towards a resolution. Conflict is inevitable, but how it is dealt with can make the difference between a strong marriage and one that is filled with struggles. 

Marriage, of course, is a two way street. If both individuals are not dedicated to making the marriage work, divorce may be inevitable. Those who are considering divorce should discuss their options with divorce attorney. This legal professional can review your situation and help put together a plan that not only protects your interests but also minimizes the emotional pain that can be tied to a divorce.
