The 4 most common divorce triggers

No one envisions a divorce in their future when they are engaged or newly married. However, unfortunately, many marriages are terminated in this way. While all marriages go through difficulties, some issues are worth working through.

If you are going through a difficult time in your marriage in the state of Michigan, it is important that you take the time to reflect and consider whether you can make things work. The following are the 4 most common reasons why couples tend to call it quits.

Abuse in the relationship

No spouse should ever be subjected to abuse by their partner. All marriages should be supportive and safe; therefore, if you are suffering from physical or emotional abuse, you should seek support and remove yourself from the situation safely.


Most romantic relationships are based on a foundation of monogamy and honesty. Therefore, if a spouse has extramarital sexual relations, the marriage can be shaken to its core. Acts of infidelity can point to deeper issues in the marriage such as disconnection and a lack of intimacy.

A change in values

Relationships work when two people have mostly shared values, beliefs and future aspirations. Unfortunately, it is possible for two people to literally grow apart in their marriage, and sometimes, this shift can be unreconcilable.

Problems with addiction

Unfortunately, addiction is a big problem for many people and can lead to changes in personality and priorities. Addictions can come in many forms, from alcohol and drugs to food and gambling.

If you are struggling in your marriage, you should consider counseling sessions. It's also a good idea to prepare for any outcome, including a possible divorce.
