Signs Of A Troubled Relationship & How To Know If Your Marriage Is Heading For Divorce » Signs That You Are Headed For DivorceEveryone hopes for a marital union that will last an eternity: ‘Till death do us part’. While every relationship goes through its happy ups and painful downs, it is not always possible to gauge whether you should throw in the towel or plough on through the bad times.

A marriage doesn’t pack up overnight, there are indications of things going from good to bad to worse. Are you headed for Splitsville or will your marriage stand the test of time? Here are signs that your relationship may have run its course.

You are hardly together. Do you find that the time you spend together is rapidly reducing? That you don’t go on vacations together (despite time, leave from work and money being no constraint)? That your spouse is becoming increasingly independent, preferring to be on his own and do things on his own? Even while being in the same house, does it seem like you are both there and yet not? The lack of synchronicity between two partners shows a growing distance that does not bode well for the relationship.

You hardly talk to each other. Watch your conversations with your partner closely. Do you hardly talk to each other, let alone communicate on a deeper level? And even if you talk, is it only about either inanities (the weather, the TV programme, etc) or complaints (“You don’t love me”, “You didn’t do this for me”, etc)? Effective communication is the foundation on which a strong relationship is based.

If you communicate, you are more likely to be emotionally bound together, which, in turn, leads to physical intimacy. If you’ve stopped confiding in each other or are unpleasant to each other, it shows a lack of trust. And isn’t a good relationship all about trust and respect?

The ‘I Versus You’ factor. Does it seem that you are headed in opposite directions with you both pitted against each other, rather than together? If there is an unhealthy competitiveness between you and your spouse, it is dangerous.

A marriage is not about one or the other, it is about one and the other. When you talk to each other in a condescending way, are critical or defensive, it shows your relationship is fast deteriorating to a point of no return.

You hardly have sex. A healthy couple in a healthy relationship has frequent sex. Are you doing it less and less? Even if you do it, is your lovemaking mechanical, quick, passionless? Do you both share a room and a bed, yet don’t have any affectionate or loving words to share? Is there no playful touching between you two? Wake up. It’s the strongest sign of a troubled relationship.

You don’t go out as a couple. Do you prefer to go alone to all the parties to which you are both invited? And once there, do you make excuses for your spouse not being there? Does it give you a feeling of freedom or escape? A couple in a steady relationship likes to be seen together and do things together. The fact that you no longer feel the need or desire to take your partner with you shows that your relationship is under the threat of a breakdown.
