Signs that a marriage may be ending

The decision to get a divorce can be a difficult one for some people in Georgia. They may wonder whether they need to give the relationship another chance. According to some experts, there are signs that can indicate when the relationship is in serious trouble and that divorce may be the best option.

Some of those signs are symptoms of a larger problem. For example, many experts say that when couples stop eating dinner together or having sex, this can indicate a larger lack of connection and intimacy. If spouses stop having fun together, this could also be a sign that the marriage is in trouble. These tendencies could mean that the couple is living separate lives, which suggests that divorce may not be far behind.

Some couples may agree that they will stay together for their children's sake. However, this is only putting the decision off since the children will grow up. Furthermore, it is not necessarily even good for children, especially if the parents are fighting often. A more serious issue, such as an addiction to gambling, alcohol or drugs, can make it impossible to continue in a relationship. Other signs that a marriage may be near its end are a lack of respect, a reluctance to spend time together, a lack of empathy for one another and relief at the thought of it ending.

These issues can make the divorce process difficult as well. For example, having no empathy or respect may make it hard to negotiate an agreement on child custody. However, divorcing parents should try to put their feelings about one another aside when it comes to their children. If their negotiations are unsuccessful, they may have to go to court where a judge will determine what kind of arrangement is in the best interests of the child.
