When will I know if my marriage is over?

It’s common for many people to spend years of their lives in unhappy marriages, weighing whether or not they should file for a divorce. While divorce is not the best choice for everyone who is going through turbulence in their relationship, it’s important that you reflect on the issues in your marriage and that you never wait too long out of fear of what might be.

If you’re wondering whether your marriage should end in divorce, the following are some signs that it could be time to call it quits.

You feel stressed or angered by them regularly

It’s normal to become irritated and annoyed by your spouse from time to time. If you’re annoyed because they didn’t do the dishes again or came home later than expected, it’s unlikely to be a sign of an unhealthy relationship. However, if you become extremely angered by statements that they make or the way they treat you, this is a sign that something is wrong.

You feel you have to change who you are

You should always feel that you can be your most authentic self with your spouse. You should feel safe to express your emotions and who you are without being ridiculed. If your spouse makes you feel that you need to change who you are to be accepted by them, this is a sign that you are in a toxic relationship.

It’s usually an irrational fear of the unknown that keeps people from leaving unhappy marriages. If you are considering divorce but don’t know where to start, an attorney can help you understand the law.
