Conflicts are inevitable in a marriage regardless of how much you love your spouse. However, an inability to resolve a conflict may make it necessary to end a marriage with the help of a Pennsylvania mediator or judge. This may be true even if you aren’t subject to physical, emotional or types of abuse that might put your physical or mental health in jeopardy.
You aren’t in love with your partner anymore
Over a period of several years or decades, you may realize that you don’t have anything in common with your spouse anymore. It’s also possible that you never shared common interests but felt obligated to stay together for the kids or because you were scared to be alone. Although your partner doesn’t harm you in any way, it may still be in your best interest to get out of a loveless marriage and see what others have to offer.
Your partner engages in physical or emotional abuse
Ideally, you’ll divorce a person who is physically or emotionally abusive as quickly as possible. The same is generally true if you’re subject to financial, sexual or any other type of mistreatment. Examples of physical abuse include slapping, hitting or kicking another person. Examples of emotional abuse include disparaging comments about your looks, personality or accomplishments at work.
Your partner isn’t contributing to the relationship
If your spouse refuses to contribute to household bills or get involved with important decisions, you aren’t in a true partnership. Instead, you will be called upon to make the tough choices and will likely get all the blame if things go poorly. Even if you don’t mind making decisions, it can still be emotionally draining to feel alone even while married.
