Not all marriages last forever. Of course, no one will have entered into a marriage expecting it to break down, but nonetheless, this is what happens in some cases. Divorce is part of marriage for some couples. Yet, many will try to prevent this from happening even when it’s the best thing for all involved. When you should be getting a divorce, and yet you keep trying to do more and more to keep your marriage alive, all you’re really doing is making everyone involved miserable and even more angry with one another.
With that in mind, here are some of the key signs you need a divorce. It may not be the most pleasant thing to think about, but if you can recognize at least some of these signs and if you know that a divorce would make you and your spouse happier people, surely, it’s worth considering. Read on to find out more.
You’re Not Happy
When you’re in a relationship, it should make you happy. You should be glad to see the other person, enjoy their company, and generally feel content and satisfied because they are part of your life, and you are a part of theirs. If this is not how you feel, if the relationship makes you feel angry or sad or – perhaps worse – nothing at all, then it could be time to think about contacting family law attorney Vahey & Betouni to apply for a divorce.
Everyone deserves to be happy in their lives. If there is a situation that is causing you not to feel happy, then it’s wise to remove yourself from that situation. Sometimes that could mean your marriage. It’s an important consideration, and you’ll need to think objectively about your life to come to the right conclusion.
You’d Rather Be Alone
Do you find that you make all the excuses you can to be on your own and not spend any time with your spouse? Do you avoid them? This means there are issues that you need to deal with; alone time is great – it’s necessary for your mental health, and so you can do things that you enjoy, which is important in a healthy relationship (you both need to have your own activities as well as doing things together) – but when it’s all you want to do, then there is clearly a problem in your marriage.
In a happy marriage, you’ll want to be with your spouse and have time to yourself. If you value the latter over the former, are you really happy? It could be time to free yourself and get a divorce.
You Don’t Enjoy Your Partner’s Touch
Remember when you first met, and you wanted to be with one another in an intimate way whenever you could? Over time, this initial reaction will fade, and you’ll fall into a comfortable, less ardent way of loving one another. This is perfectly natural.
What’s not natural is recoiling from your partner’s touch. If the idea of being close to them makes you uncomfortable for any reason, this indicates a big problem in your relationship. It might be something that can be helped with counseling, but it could also mean that you need to be apart from one another permanently. Think carefully about what it means to you if you can’t stand your partner’s touch anymore.
