If you’re discontent in your marriage and you aren’t communicating with your spouse like you used to, it’s normal for you to feel lonely and unsure of what to do next. All couples go through rough patches, and it can be difficult to discern between a brief period of conflict and irreparable issues in your marriage. Sometimes it’s helpful to have something with which to compare yourself and your relationship, even if you ultimately need to make the decision about divorce for yourself.
I recently wrote an article outlining some common reasons for divorce I’ve encountered when working with past clients. If you’re feeling shaky in your marriage and want to take stock of its positive and negative aspects, you can consult my article to see how it compares. Make sure to keep in mind that each marriage is different, and you should always trust your own assessment of your relationship over a general guide like this one. However, it can be a great jumping off point for analyzing your marriage more deeply and possibly even open the line of communication with your spouse.
