How do I know if my marriage is over?

On Behalf of | Nov 29, 2019 | Divorce

Almost all married couples go through difficult periods where they question whether they should continue to reside with their spouse. Hardships in life can present new challenges and cause even the strongest partnerships to become distant.

Those who eventually file for a divorce often spend months or even years debating whether they should take action. It takes a huge amount of courage to take action on something like a divorce, but if you believe that it will improve the lives of yourself and your children, you should seriously think about it. The following are some of the things you should consider when deciding to end your marriage.

Can you imagine the situation improving?

All relationships are in a constant state of flux. If you are going through a hard time in your marriage right now, this does not mean that things will not improve in time. However, if your spouse has broken your trust, and you don’t believe that you will ever be able to trust them again, you may not be able to move on from that.

Do you have other stressors in your life that could be contributing to your dissatisfaction?

If you are stressed with work, or you are having health issues, this could cloud your vision when it comes to your marriage. You should try to relieve these stressors before deciding on your marriage.

Have you spoken to your spouse about the way you feel?

Communication is important. If you have not spoken to your spouse about the way you feel, you should start by doing this.

If you are considering divorce, you should make sure that you have a good understanding of how it works in Oregon.
