Is your marriage headed for divorce?

Data shows as many as half of all Arizona marriages and others throughout the nation are at great risk for divorce. You may be sitting on the fence at this time, trying to determine if your marriage is fixable or if you've done all you can and now it's time to go your separate ways. If you're leaning toward the latter, then you may be one of many spouses will soon file a divorce petition in court.

No one can predict which marriages will last a lifetime and which won't. You can definitely tell when your relationship has gone off-course, however, and you might find that the issues causing problems are not isolated to your own relationship but that many other married couples have had similar experiences.

Problems that often lead to divorce

Only you and your spouse can decide whether you should, perhaps visit with a licensed counselor to see if you can get your relationship back on track or whether the most viable option for you is to begin divorce proceedings. As you analyze your situation, you may relate to some of the following issues that have led others to divorce in Arizona and other states as well:

  • Couples who constantly fight over money are at risk for divorce.
  • You may not fight over money; however, if a financial crisis arises, your relationship might not be able to withstand the strain.
  • If you've experienced infidelity in your marriage, it might be a main cause of the breakdown in your relationship. This issue causes many divorces throughout the nation.
  • Family crisis can also lead to marital crisis. If a child dies, for instance, or a spouse receives a diagnosis of a terminal illness or loses a job, the marriage might simply crumble under such stress.

You may have already tried a time or two to restore your relationship with your spouse after one or more of these problems drove a wedge between you. If you ultimately make the decision to divorce, there's no use mulling things over again and again in your mind, blaming yourself or wondering what you could have done differently. Instead, it helps to look toward the future and to build a strong support system.

Who can help?

If you have a close friend or relative who has gone through divorce in the past, he or she may be a great asset in your time of need. You can also arrange a meeting with a counselor or minister to talk about ways to cope with your situation. If you're worried about legal matters, you can tap into local resources for support in that area as well.
