These signs could mean that divorce is imminent

On Behalf of | Oct 19, 2021 | Divorce |

A marriage is often one of the most joyous occasions in a person’s life. Over time, however, spouses may grow apart. What started off as a blissful union can turn into a challenging mess. For spouses in Michigan wondering if their marriage is headed for dissolution, here are a few things that could signify that a divorce is inevitable.


In a healthy marriage, spouses support each other and value their marriage more than themselves. When spouses distance themselves from each other or feel disconnected, it may mean they could be headed for a split. A few signs of disconnect are a lack of communication, lack of intimacy or simply the way spouses treat each other.


Mistrust is a big indicator that a marriage may be headed for a demise. Trust is one of the primary foundations of a successful marriage. If trust is gone, the marriage is often doomed to fail.

Seeking help

Marriage can be tough. However, just because it isn’t all sunshine and rainbows doesn’t mean there is nothing there to salvage. Rather than looking for signs that the marriage is over, identify the feelings and positive things that exist now and work together to determine the best path forward. For spouses who want help, it is often beneficial to meet with a marriage counselor or therapist.

Some marriages just cannot be salvaged. Truthfully, some actually should not be reconciled because of the negative impact the relationship has on those who are in it. There is no shame in choosing to divorce. For any person in Michigan who is contemplating divorce or whose spouse has already begun the divorce process, it can be very beneficial to consult with a compassionate and experienced family law attorney.
