7 Signs Your Marriage Might End Up in Divorce
On 18th September 2018
Treating your partner badly.
One of the major predictors of a failed marriage is contempt. When you or your partner suddenly barrages the other with criticism or contempt, leaving the other feeling shell-shocked, this results in disengagement and often, over time, leads to contempt. Constant sarcasm, ridiculing, eye-rolling and disrespect can cause mental anguish and stress, leading to health issues.
Couples who get stuck viewing their relationship through a negative lens end up rewriting history that is often distorted. This extreme negative outlook contributes to the demise of a marriage.
You never argue
According to Douglas Kepanis, a divorce attorney in New York City, staying silent to keep the peace just leads to built-up resentment. If you keep secrets so you don’t upset your partner — you could end up destroying your marriage.
