Why Do Marriages End In Divorce?

Here are some common reasons a marriage may end in divorce:

  • Growing apart. Growing usually denotes a good thing, but growing apart is just a "feel good" term used to say that there is no longer any interest in honoring ones commitment.

  • Extramarital affairs or infidelity is a fancy way of saying they cheat. Again, no honor, just selfish gain.

  • Lack of commitment means that they just gave up, or don't really care.

  • Financial problems can lead to one or the other resenting their marriage mate.

  • Disagreements related to children which can include religion and lifestyles. It is especially difficult for step-parents.

  • Alcohol or drug abuse is a leading contributor to divorce. Mental health issues play a big part in substance abuse.

  • Domestic violence and abuse are strong catalysts for divorce, and rightly so. If you are facing domestic threats, contact us.

  • Constant arguing and conflict over everything and nothing is an indicator that your partner is nit-picking and no longer interested in maintaining the marriage.

  • Differing lifestyles and values is another fly-by-night way of saying that your partner no longer wants the same thing and will just treat your marriage as disposable refuse when they get a whim to go in some far flung direction.
