Are You Ready to File for Divorce? These Signs May Point to Yes
Posted on: February 26, 2019
There are some instances in which it is easy to see that a couple should divorce. This may involve one infidelity or some other drastic situation. However, many people are not sure if they should divorce or stay with their spouse. At Kendall Gkikas & Mitchell, LLP we are here to provide legal advice but whether or not now is the time to consider divorce is up to you.
That said, in our years of experience we have seen three signs that often point to it being time to file for divorce. If you see yourself in these three signs, contact us at 909-482-1422 to make an appointment.
You Have Lost Respect for One Another
You Are Not Attracted to One Another
You Do Not Feel as Though You Are on the Same Team
If you and your spouse have completely lost respect for one another, it may be hard to come back from that. This could happen because you no longer trust your spouse due to infidelity. It could be related to the mishandling of money. It could be something even more serious, such as domestic violence. Whatever the cause, if you have lost respect for your spouse, and / or vice versa, then it may be time to consider a divorce.
In most marriages, spouses are attracted to one another and have physical intimacy. While it is normal for a couple to become intimate less frequently as they stay together for years, if you and your partner are not attracted to one another, and you are not physically intimate, then this is a good sign that your marriage may be permanently on the rocks. Not only can this issue erode emotional connections, but it can lead to infidelity.
Do you find yourself thinking of your relationship as you versus them? This is a bad sign. You will find this also includes a lack of empathy, which means you and your spouse cannot understand each other’s feelings or perspectives. This makes it nearly impossible to communicate with each other and work together.
This can manifest in a number of ways. For example, it may be that one spouse puts their personal interests above the best interests of the family, or that one spouse does not want to talk about marital problems. It may even turn into one or both parties purposefully taking actions they know will hurt the other.
