We often see many people in our office who come in and claim that they were completely blind sighted when their spouse told them that they wanted a divorce. Often this happens when one spouse is too wrapped up in other aspects of their life beside their marriage, like their job, extended family, friends or children. If things in your marriage seem a little rocky right now, you may want to check out this list of signs that could indicate you and your partner may be heading for a divorce even if you don’t know it.

  1. The Negative Outweighs the Positivesdreamstime_xxl_16496692
    This is a great way of examining all of your relationships, not your just marriage. If negative experiences with a person are far more common than positive ones, you are doing yourself a disservice by keeping them in your life. Yes, of course, we hope that people will change and occasionally they do, but the reality is that as adults, we are likely to remain the same people and your negative experiences with you spouse are not going to cease out of the blue one day.
  2. You Don’t Confide In One Another Anymore
    At the beginning of a relationship and even in successful long term relationships, your partner is the first person you want to tell things to. Whether it be something wonderful that happened to you or something that completely ruined your day, confiding in your spouse should be a no-brainer. However, couples who find they are unhappy in their marriages often stop communicating in general, as they have no desire to engage with their spouse.
  3. One Or Both Of You Is Constantly Defensive
    If everything your partner says rubs you the wrong way, or they are continually defending themselves even about seemingly unimportant issues, chances are one of both of you is unhappy in the relationship. If one or both of you constantly seem mad, chances are you are.
