Are You Truly Happy In Your Marriage Or Is It Time To Get A Divorce?
Are you Heading Towards A Divorce?
Do you have doubts in your relationship? Is your husband the one you see yourself growing old with? Do you ever question whether you should stay together or not?
Did you know that 4 out of 10 marriages end in divorce? And that 34 percent of married couples divorce before their 20th wedding anniversary? These numbers are scary high. and I don’t think that anyone goes into a marriage thinking that the most likely outcome will be a divorce.
Getting in a rut is easy. I know it too well. Taking care of kids all day (or working), keeping the house clean and getting food on the table is exhausting sometimes. And it’s easy to forget about yourself and your marriage.
Most times it feels like there aren’t just enough hours on a day to take care of me, my family, and my relationship. And when the night comes and the kids are tucked in, I usually rather lie on the sofa and watch TV, than spend time with my husband.
To avoid being part of the statistic above, there are warning signs you need to take seriously. And you shouldn’t be afraid to seek help before a divorce feels like the only way out.

Why People Get Divorced
People get divorced for many reasons. And there’s usually not only one single reason for why a couple decides to split up.
The most common reasons for divorce are:
1. Money Problems
Worrying about money can take a lot of your energy. And it’s not uncommon for couples to be on various pages on this subject. You might have different values, where one of you likes to spend and the other one to save.

Unfaithfulness breaks down trust and makes it difficult to establish honesty in a relationship. Flirting might be accepted in some relationships, but not everyone is accepting about this.
3. Interfering ex-partners
Staying in contact with an ex isn’t all that uncommon, but it can create tension. Even if you don’t have any intentions of starting an affair with your ex, flirty talk raises a warning flag.
4. Differences in sexual libido
It’s common for couples to not have the same level of sexual libido. And you might worry that you’re not sexually compatible with each other. Or you’re just too tired from everything else to have the energy for sex anymore.
5. Children from previous relationships
If you live with kids that aren’t your own, it might be difficult to establish a relationship with them. People tend to react differently to their own children and someone else’s children.
6. Intrusive parents
Problems can occur if you or your partner have parents that are too intrusive. There’s a difference in having a good relationship with your parents or your in-laws, and parents who interfere.
7. Difference in how you resolve conflict
Conflict can be good. But if you don’t care enough anymore to fight or if you fight too much, it’s a warning flag. It can also cause difficulty if one of you argues a lot and the other one doesn’t like to argue.

8. Difference in communication
Talking is essential in a relationship. If one of you likes to talk a lot and the other one doesn’t like to talk as much, it might make you feel lonely since your partner doesn’t want to listen. Or you’ll feel like your partner’s nagging all the time.
9. Privacy problems
Showing off your relationship on social media might be a sign that something is wrong. An American study has shown that the more insecure a person is about their partner’s feelings, the more they make the relationship visible in social media.
Don’t Forget That You Are Amazing!
The thought that you might be with the wrong person or that you are not just right for each other might seem scary. But you owe it to yourself to evaluate your relationship so you can start working on improving your relationship together, or go separate ways.
You deserve to be happy and you deserve to feel loved. You are amazing and there is no one else out there who is like you. Don’t you ever forget that!
