As the years go by, the reasons why a couple decided to marry may change. Although almost no couple in Illinois gets married with the end in mind, it’s just a fact that marriage will change as spouses evolve. In some cases, divorce may be the best option. Here are a few ways to tell if spouses are headed for a divorce.
Lack of intimacy
An absence of intimacy is a clear sign that a divorce could be in the cards. Although every couple goes through dry spells, it’s sometimes more than just a lull. A red flag that a marriage is failing is when there is a definite lack of interest in intimacy among spouses and they don’t communicate or do anything about it.
Spouses become different people
Many times, spouses split up simply because they are not the same people as they were at the time of marriage. This doesn’t have to mean that spouses hate each other. They may want different things and have just grown apart through the years.
One not-so-obvious sign that a marriage may be over is when a person constantly complains to family or friends about their spouse. Talking to friends about annoying things a spouse does is very different from constantly griping or complaining about a partner. Trash talk or constant complaining could signal a lack of respect.
Divorce can be one of the most psychologically and emotionally challenging experiences any person can face in life. Those in Illinois who have questions or think they may be headed for divorce can benefit from discussions with a legal representative. A trusted attorney can help clients determine the best and most efficient route to take to get through this difficult event.
