Six common reasons people file for divorce

When two people divorce, there is usually more than one issue that led them to this point. Additionally, most marriages seem to break down for the same reasons. If no effort is made to reignite the sparks in your relationship, these common issues could signal the end of a marriage.

What challenges could lead to divorce?

Some of the most common reasons people file for divorce are:

  • Loss of individuality: Spouses need to make time for themselves. Having alone time allows you to explore your individual interests and reflect on your relationship.
  • Going through the motions: When couples have children, they often overlook maintaining their own relationship. All of your time and energy may be spent caring for your children, which can limit your opportunities to focus on your marriage.
  • Decreased intimacy: Marital issues may occur if a couple ignores the physical aspect of their relationship. Losing this part of your relationship may cause both spouses to experience resentment and frustration.
  • Financial problemsIf both spouses struggle with money management, problems can arise. It is vital to communicate how you both wish to manage your money.
  • Changing hobbiesIt is essential to identify activities that you both enjoy. Spending quality time with your spouse allows you to bond and strengthen your relationship. Couples contemplating divorce often neglect this part of the marriage.
  • Ineffective communicationListening to one another and working through problems together is a sign of a healthy marriage. Couples who lack communication will often leave their problems unsettled.

If you and your spouse believe there is a chance of rekindling the marriage, speaking with a marriage counselor could be beneficial.

On the other hand, if neither of you see the relationship turning around, then seeking the help of a divorce attorney could be your next step.
