Signs You Might Need to Consider a Divorce

Last updated 5 years ago

Every relationship has its ups and downs. Sometimes, you and your spouse may be able to resolve your issues and work through the difficult times. However, in some instances, your marriage may be irretrievably broken and beyond repair. You are the only person who knows what is best for you, but the following signs indicate that it might be time to consider divorce:


Infidelity is never an easy hurdle to overcome. However, in cases where the unfaithful spouse is still friends with his or her former lover or where the spouse is a serial cheater, it is even more difficult to regain the trust and move on in your marriage. It is especially problematic when the unfaithful spouse blames the other spouse for his or her infidelity.


Abuse is never acceptable or justifiable in a marriage. If you have been the victim of domestic abuse, it is important to seek support and give serious thought to whether your marriage is healthy and viable.

Disagreement about Major Issues

There are some issues that you and your spouse must be on the same page about to make your marriage work. One of these topics is children. If you are not both on the same page about having children and how you will raise them generally, this is a red flag for divorce.

Lack of Communication

Communication is always important, and you and your spouse must be willing to work on your relationship after one of you brings up an issue. In a relationship where one partner is not willing to work on the marriage or willing to communicate, you may have to consider whether staying in the marriage is best for you and your family.
