Making the decision to divorce can be a difficult decision to make, but
for some couples, it’s the best option. At
Saponaro Barach Bingham LLP, we have seen many couples come through our doors with differing reasons
for their divorce. Below, our
Wellesley divorce attorney has compiled a list of the three most common signs it might be time to
end your marriage. Keep reading for more information, so you can make
an informed decision before calling it quits.
One of the most telltale signs it might be time for divorce is when one
or both marriage partners have gone outside the marriage to have an affair.
The most common reason people site for having an affair is a lack of sexual
satisfaction in their primary relationship. While some couples are able
to recover after one partner has an extramarital affair, others take it
as a sign that it is time for their marriage to end. If the affair started
as a response to a lack of sexual satisfaction, working with a marriage
counselor might help you and your spouse determine if divorce is the right
choice for you. Perhaps some counseling about how to communicate what
each party needs to feel satisfied could be a helpful way to recover from
2. Counseling doesn’t work
As mentioned above, marriage counseling is a productive way to work out
your problems, learn how to communicate, and obtain some training in dispute
resolution. For marriage counseling to work, both partners of the marriage
must be committed to working on the marriage. If you and your spouse are
attending marriage counseling with no sign of improvement after several
months, it might be a strong indicator that it could be time start planning
3. Severe arguments
If you and your spouse get into serious, hurtful arguments fraught with
screaming, name-calling and other disrespectful actions, it could be a
crucial sign it’s time for divorce. While arguing sometimes is normal
for any marriage, arguing that devolves into abusive behavior is not.
If you feel your arguments cannot be resolved without becoming personal
attacks it could be a sign it might be time to contact a Wellesley divorce lawyer.
