When is it time to get a divorce?

Everyone has their own reasons to get a divorce. In some cases, you might not even have a clear reason at all. Perhaps you simply want to be a single person because you feel you were happier before you got married. Whatever your personal reasons are -- or whatever your spouse's personal reasons are -- chances are that one or several of the following reasons played a role in your marital breakdown:

Constant criticism: If one spouse is always criticizing the other spouse, it won't bode well for the marriage. In fact, criticism and disapproval is one of the primary reasons why couples decide to call it quits.

Defensiveness and guardedness: Being on guard and being defensive with a spouse is one of the reasons why couples grow apart. The spouses might not feel comfortable being themselves with their partner anymore, and this might lead them to want more space and more distance by living in different homes.

The children come first: When two people are in the throes of a very toxic relationship, it can wreak havoc on the psychological and emotional well-being of the children. Sometimes, couples call it quits just to give the children a break from the constant fighting.

You're spending more time in separate activities: Couples need to do things together, as a duo. They also need to have their own lives and separate activities, but if separate activities become the theme, and the couple doesn't enjoy doing things together anymore, it could be a good reason to end the relationship.

You feel lonely in your relationship: Many people who have been married for decades are suffering from intense feelings of loneliness. This can come about when you feel your spouse doesn't "get" or understand you. Even living in close proximity to someone can result in feelings of loneliness if you can't truly connect with the person.

When you are able to recognize that you're ready to move on from your partner, no matter how long you've been married, it's a sign that divorce is near. Just make sure that you divorce in a peaceful and diplomatic way as it will make things easier on your family, your pocketbook and your stress levels.
