How do I know it's time for divorce?

Divorce is a major life event that many people will endure during their lifetime. Some will endure it more than once. There are couples that know they are headed for divorce. Then, there are others where it sneaks up on them. So, how do I know it's time for divorce in Rhode Island?

One of the most obvious signs that it might be time for divorce is when you are often put down or criticized by your spouse. This tends to lead people to feel less than good enough in your marriage. Criticism by one spouse of the other is a big reason why marriages end in divorce.

Spouses who constantly feel lonely even when with their spouse is another sign that it might be time to file for divorce. This makes you experience less closeness, affection and intimacy. Many times spouses will find themselves confiding in others about their marriage and other problems instead of their spouse.

Difficulty being vulnerable around your spouse is another sign it might be time to file for divorce. Spouses in this situation often feel guilty when they reveal their feelings and desires to their spouse.

A marriage will become exhausted when one or both spouses put the needs of their children above all else all the time. This results in demanding, insecure children and alienated, resentful spouses.

Couples who rarely have sex or have different sexual intimacy needs might also need to come to the realization that it is time for divorce.

When you no longer want to socialize with your spouse's friends or family members, this is a sign that it might be time for divorce. This leads to the spouses spending less time with each other.

Disagreements never seem to get resolved and you begin to fight about the same thing over and over again. You begin playing the blame game and stop compromising and apologizing.

The end of a marriage happens for various reasons. Whatever your reason is, our experienced family law attorney in Providence, Rhode Island, can help you through the process from start to finish.
