There are many reasons why a marriage may not last. However, there are several common factors that could predict whether one will end in divorce. For instance, if Kentucky residents have contempt for their partners, it may lead to problems communicating. A lack of communication can lead to disagreements and misunderstandings that erode the foundation of a successful relationship.
Another factor that could lead to divorce is allowing baggage from previous relationships to carry over into a current relationship. If a person was the victim of infidelity in a prior relationship, it could put them on edge in their current marriage. This could result in constantly calling or checking up on a spouse or becoming anxious over the lack of a response to a call or text.
Avoiding conflict with a partner can be a sign that the relationship is not going to work. Although nobody likes conflict, it helps a relationship grow over time. Conflict also ensures that negative feelings are not allowed to linger because they are addressed in a timely manner. It is also important that each partner is allowed to express their emotions and have them validated by the other person. Otherwise, they won’t feel heard or confident expressing their feelings on a regular basis.
A spouse who is going through a divorce may want to talk to an attorney about how to proceed. Legal counsel could offer information that might be helpful when negotiating a settlement. If a couple has a prenuptial agreement in place, an attorney may determine if it is still valid. If it is, its language will largely determine how a settlement is structured.
