Is your marriage headed for divorce?

When a Nevada couple is having marital problems, it can be difficult to know when a rough patch is simply part of the normal ebb and flow of a marriage or is indicative of a more serious issue. Every relationship has ups and downs, but there are some signs that should not be ignored. If the following scenarios sound all-too-familiar, it may be time to consider whether your marriage is on a path toward divorce.

One thing that happens when spouses begin to disconnect is that their communication begins to suffer. You may no longer want to tell your spouse the things that you are fearful of, or share those aspects of life that bring you the most joy. Your partner should be the first person that you think of when something monumental takes place, good or bad. When that level of communication has been lost, there may be serious trouble ahead.

Another sign of discord involves the feeling that you are alone in working on the relationship's issues. Every couple has a list of things that can be improved, and in a healthy marriage both spouses work together to address these matters and work toward solutions. When one party feels as if he or she is the only one who cares about keeping the marriage healthy, divorce may be on the horizon. Not only is this scenario suggestive of a lack of cooperation between partners, but a serious imbalance of marital responsibility can breed contempt on the part of the spouse who shoulders those burdens.

If these problems are at play within your marriage, it may be time to sit down and consider where the relationship is heading. With early intervention, many Nevada marriages can be saved through therapy or each spouse's re-commitment to the union. In other cases, however, divorce is the best path for both spouses, giving each a chance to find lasting love with a more suitable partner.
