Marriages sometimes have ups and downs that the couple can overcome. Sometimes, there are subtle signs that something is amiss. Knowing these may help you to determine if there’s something in your marriage that you need to address.
It’s important that you’re honest with yourself as you’re looking into your marriage. Don’t overlook the small clues that might signal something is amiss.
Fighting has stopped
You may think that fights are a negative thing in a marriage, but they’re actually a sign that you still care. When the fights stop, it’s a sign that you’re giving up on correcting the things that are wrong in the marriage.
Less or no intimacy
Intimacy is an important part of marriage. When intimate times start to slow down or stop completely, the marriage might be in trouble. It’s possible that a marriage might go through short spurts of a reduction or cessation of intimacy, but it shouldn’t last very long.
Dreaming of a single life
If you find yourself dreaming of a life without your partner, you may have mentally checked out of the marriage already. You may even be planning for that life.
If all three of these points are present in the marriage, divorce is probably right around the corner. Some people may try to salvage it with marriage counseling, but others just want to get out of it.
The end of a marriage is a turbulent time. It’s best if you take steps to protect yourself during this time. Working with someone who’s familiar with the divorce laws in Colorado can help you to learn about your options.
