The divorce rate has sky-rocketed over the past few years: as a matter of fact, some studies have revealed that most of the time, women are the ones who take the first step and file the divorce papers, when they feel like their marriage has become a burden. If you have been encountering problems in your marriage and you are afraid you might be heading toward a divorce, here are the top 10 most common signs that your marriage is doomed:
1. You Are No Longer The Great Team You Once Used To be
A marriage creates a very strong bond between two people who love each other. You become one soul trapped in two different bodies, you become an inseparable team that is ready to confront every obstacle and to overcome it, or at least this is how things should be in a perfect marriage. In a healthy relationship, the couple should share tasks and responsibilities, especially when it comes to parenting. However, if you are no longer a team and you have started to work on your own, make plans independently from your spouse or even go on holidays all by yourself, then this is a very strong indicator that your marriage is slowly degrading.
Cheating is by far the most common cause of divorce nowadays. An old saying states that trust is like a mirror: you may try and fix it after it breaks, but the cracks will always be there to remember you that things will never be the same again. Same applies to cheating spouses: if your husband or wife cheated on you once, there is no guarantee that they will not do it again in the future. This is why many people choose not to live with this uncertainty and they take fate in their own hands, by filing the divorce papers. Infidelity is a serious issue that can wreak havoc on somebody’s mental and emotional state.
