All Florida marriages take effort to make them work, but sometimes, a spouse might think it’s no longer worth it. While this is a difficult conclusion to come to, there are certain signs that it’s time to cut your losses and get a divorce.
Lack of intimacy
Although it’s common for married couples to experience dry spells, a longstanding lack of intimacy can signify doom. You can take it as a sign that divorce is in your future. A lack of intimacy is deeper than not having sexual relations; it often means you and your spouse are in different places emotionally as well.
Any type of domestic violence within a marriage is cause for a divorce. No one should perpetrate any form of abuse on the person they love. It crosses a line and sends the message that the person doesn’t care about their spouse. Although many couples try to work things out, it only puts the victim in greater danger and further erodes the relationship.
Infidelity is a big sign that your marriage is about to end. If you can’t move past the idea of your spouse being physically intimate with another person, you may lose trust in them, which is no way to have a relationship. Once those bonds are broken, divorce is the only logical option.
You’re leading separate lives
Even if you and your spouse have opposite schedules, you should still be spending quality time together whenever you both have the time. However, if you’re leading separate lives and spending less and less time together as a couple, you might end up getting divorced.
Before telling your spouse you want a divorce, know that it’s what you truly want. You might want to first see if your marriage can be saved.
