2 signs that divorce is on the horizon

Divorce may be on your radar if you are not happily married. With the start of a new year, many people in the Cumming area find they are ready to start over and leave their partners behind. If you are one of them, it is a good idea for you to look before you leap.

Things are not always going to be rosy and conflict-free between you and your spouse. Uttering the word divorce every time you fight to get your spouse to act the way you want can backfire. Here are some things for you to consider if you are not sure if divorce is right for your situation.

1. Nonstop arguments

It is normal for people in relationships to disagree on things. If you find you and your spouse spend more time arguing than not, you might want to assess your communication style. In order for you and your partner to communicate effectively, you both need to learn to listen to each other. When your spouse speaks, do not interrupt. Think about what he or she is saying before you respond. Try not to let your feelings lead your conversations.

2. On two different pages

Usually, when two people get married, it is because they can see themselves building a future together. Not all couples stay on the same page throughout their marriages. People grow apart and change. Sometimes it is necessary to seek out counseling to help you rediscover your partner. If you feel that you or your spouse has changed so much that you no longer want to be together, you should start examining your divorce options.

Keep in mind that there are no quick or fast answers to relationship issues. Determining if divorce is the right solution can seem challenging and stressful. If you are still on the fence and ready to get past the uncertainty you feel, you might want to consult with a therapist and divorce attorney for guidance on the matter.
