Signs That Divorce Is The Way To Go
Nobody goes into a relationship planning for a divorce. We engage in a relationship and commit to marriage with the intent of being together for the rest of our lives. But we never know what the future could hold and what road bumps end up destroying what was meant to last forever. Divorce, as scary as it sounds, is not a rare event with 40 to 50 percent of marriages concluding with it. What the numbers won’t tell you though, is what brought couples there. Read more here on things that could indicate that divorce might be the way to go.

Any Form Of Abuse
Abuse looks different for different people and could be any of the following: physical, verbal, emotional, mental, and sexual. If you notice that your partner is becoming violent and abusive, don’t make excuses for him/her nor enable further abuse.

Depending on your values and the nature of your marriage, your partner having an affair does not automatically equate to the end of your marriage. If both of you are willing to put an end to any existing affairs and go through marriage counseling, then there may still be hope for your marriage. But don’t you ever forget that you are not obligated to go through that kind of pain for the sake of your children, as you too deserve to be completely loved and valued.
