When criticism in your relationship becomes too much to bear
On behalf of Barli & Associates LLC posted in divorce on Friday, April 20, 2018.
We all divorce for different reasons, but some reasons for divorce surface time and time again. Of course, the circumstances surrounding the following common cause of divorce will be unique for every marriage, but – if your spouse is criticizing you nonstop – you might be able to relate to the following situation:
Imagine that you can’t do anything right no matter how hard you try, and for the sake of your marriage you have tried. In fact, you’ve tried so hard that you’ve become a dramatically better, more caring and more responsible human being. The problem is, it’s never enough for your spouse.
There’s always something that you’ve done wrong, and even though your spouse is not blatantly abusive, the sum total of all the criticisms have left you feeling small and diminished – as if you’re some kind of failure. In fact, even though you’ve told your spouse that this is how the criticisms feel, time and time again, the nagging and critiques never stop. Welcome to one of the primary reasons why marriages collapse. If you identify with the above, it might be time for you to call it quits on your marriage.
Once you’ve decided that divorce is the only solution to your marital woes, it’s time to get serious about understanding the various steps and procedures involved in the process. You’ll also want to understand what kind of outcome you can expect in your child custody and/or property division agreements. By fully understanding what you’re getting into by choosing to divorce, you’ll be more equipped to navigate your divorce process quickly and cost-effectively.
