3 Red Flags to Watch for in Your Marriage

Posted on in Divorce

West Dundee Divorce Lawyer

Relationships can be wonderful if you are with the right person. Each situation is different, but there are some warning signs to keep in mind when in a relationship to make sure you are not with the wrong individual. 

If your marriage exhibits a combination of these behaviors, especially to an extreme degree, it may be time to reevaluate. Perhaps your spouse or partner has a reason for exhibiting these traits, but if there is a pattern and you feel you can no longer handle it, it may be time to end the relationship and initiate divorce proceedings

Marriage Communication

Being able to talk to one another about anything is key in every relationship. If your partner does not communicate with you, especially in times in which it is critical to be honest and discuss what is going on, it can be difficult to be with them long-term. A lack of communication is often accompanied by an emotional distance between the parties and a lack of support through actual problems. 

Lack of Trust 

If you have found through your interactions with your spouse that it is hard to trust them, that is something that must be evaluated in your relationship. A trust deficit may stem from them not being honest with you, or a lack of respect both ways, which can cause problems as well. A relationship without trust is likely to be uncertain, confusing, and damaging. 

Disliked by Friends and Family

Odds are, not everyone is going to like the person you are married to. However, if many of your friends and family members are telling you they have a problem with your significant other, that is something to seriously consider. Your close friends and family likely know you well and their ability to witness things from the outside may let them see things you do not.
