2 warning signs that divorce is near

You and your spouse have been through thick and thin together. You might have the kind of history that makes you feel like your marriage will survive anything. However, even the strongest marriages can fail, and sometimes the reasons for those failure are not entirely clear.

You may wonder whether you and your spouse be able to overcome these hurdles or if it's time to call it quits.

No matter how long you've been married, if you encounter these two divorce warning signs, you might want to consider evaluating the future of your marriage. Can your marriage survive the following?

1. Conflict resolution and compromise have become impossible

If you and your spouse can't reach accord by overcoming your differences, or if the same arguments continue to pop up again and again, your marriage could be approaching its end. When two spouses have unresolved tensions or when one spouse always ends arguments with bullying or argues the other spouse into submission, it's a very bad sign for the marriage. Couples may be able to fake it for a while, but eventually, these differences will become tears in the fabric of the marriage until the only answer is divorce.

2. When one or the other spouse becomes emotionally disengaged

As unresolved tensions mount, the stresses and emotional trauma from constant arguing could result in one of the spouses emotionally checking out of the marriage. Without emotional engagement — and without taking a vested interest in one another's lives — the couple could lose all sense of emotional intimacy. Inevitably, this leads to the breakdown of the relationship and paves the way to divorce.

Which direction is right for your marriage?

Are you experiencing these two marital warning signs? If so, it's likely time to evaluate the future of your marriage. Sometimes, couples can overcome these difficulties. The two spouses can seek counseling to attempt overcome and resolve their differences — and fall in love with each other all over again. In other cases, it's time to start learning about the Indiana divorce process and what it takes to divorce peacefully, swiftly and cost-effectively.
