How Do You Know Your Marriage Is Over?

Some signs may be:

  • Constantly fantasizing about leaving
  • Feeling overwhelmed by marital negativity
  • Being unable to communicate openly to your spouse
  • Not finding any common ground with your partner
  • Living as roommates versus a couple

These signs may indicate more profound issues such as unbalanced effort, infidelity, unchangeable traits, or a lack of respect and care by you and your spouse. One thing is certain, before starting the divorce process, make sure you are 100% sure that divorcing your partner is the path you want to take. Once that door is open, it’s hard to close.

In such situations, collaborative divorce offers a more amicable alternative than traditional court-litigated divorces. Collaborative divorce involves mental health experts, financial neutrals, lawyers, child specialists, and divorce coaches who work with both partners to address the underlying reasons for the relationship breakdown and guide the family toward a healthier future post-divorce. It is an amicable process where everyone, including your children, has a voice and can give input. It’s not a win-lose type of divorce.

Every marriage is unique, and divorce can stem from various reasons beyond these common signs. Collaborative divorce acknowledges this and provides a safe and amicable environment for couples to navigate the complexities of ending their marriage while embracing mutual respect and understanding.

By recognizing the signs and embracing a collaborative approach, couples can transition through divorce with greater empathy and cooperation, ensuring a smoother path for themselves and their children.
