Knowing when it is time to move forward with divorce

For many Florida spouses, the hardest part of a faltering marriage is knowing when it is time to pull the plug. We are taught to work out marital problems, and in many cases that is the best approach. There are some unions, however, in which marital damage simply cannot be repaired, and the best course of action for all parties is to file for divorce. A recently published article aims to help spouses identify when a relationship has reached that point.

One issue that may suggest that a marriage cannot be salvaged involves spouses who fight over the same topics, time and again. When a couple cannot come to terms on a certain issue and that matter becomes the center of multiple arguments, the problem may lie in base incompatibilities between a husband and wife. While marriage does involve compromise, neither partner should have to change their fundamental personality to meet the needs of the other.

Another issue that often suggests that divorce is on the horizon involves an increasing tendency to scope out new romantic or sexual partners within the context of everyday encounters. Once one or both partners are beginning to seriously consider other alternatives, their core bond has likely been damaged beyond repair. Regardless of whether one acts on these impulses, the urge to look for companionship outside of one's marriage is a serious indicator of trouble.

In some cases, couples who are going through a trying period can work together to rebuild their connection and can move forward with a marriage that is made stronger for having been tested. For many, however, these and other signs point to marital issues that are beyond repair. Once a Florida spouse has determined that the relationship is heading for divorce, it is imperative that he or she make efforts to determine their rights under state law. Moving forward fully informed is the best way to ensure a favorable divorce outcome.
