“T’ill death do us part” is a worthy sentiment but with so much time demand on building a professional career, social status pressure or just plain busy-ness of our daily lives, some couples feel they are growing apart. Some signs of this growing apart trend includes not spending a lot of time together, going to bed at different times, making big decisions without consulting the other, sharing news with someone else before your spouse, etc… A very conscious effort is required to overcome the lack of communication and not spending time as a couple. Adding elements such as anger or resentment, makes couples feel there is no moving forward, or simply they just “felt out of love”. Sometimes people divorce because they “grow apart”. The spouses may continue to work together as a social team, but the attraction and trust for one another is no longer present.
If you pay a little closer attention to your marriage, and to where you are walking, it is possible to pick up on clues that you and your spouse are growing apart and work to fix those cracks before they get out of control. What happens is things start accumulating and over time they become bigger and bigger.
Separating or ending the marriage is hard. Sometimes people feel they have been”deselected”. But when a relationship is antagonistic, bad sidetrack fights, abusive or emotionally hurting your love ones, is time to truly consider legal alternatives.
