Common Reasons For Divorce
The average divorce rate across the UK is around 42%. Marriages often end up in divorce due to a variety of reasons, some of which we will discuss here today in this blog. Why are so many marriages ending and what can be done about it? As a divorce solicitor, I want to spread as much knowledge and advice as I can.
This is why I’ve put together this list of common divorce reasons and how to possibly combat them.
Poor or miscommunication
One of the reasons behind many couples’s arguments is due to poor communication. When one person refuses to hear the other out or listen intently to their point, the other will begin to resent them. If this resentment builds up it can cause major problems to the relationship and marriage. So how do you solve this?
If you feel as though your spouse is not communicating effectively with you then it’s time to sit down and talk with them seriously.
You could set a time and date to have a proper conversation about how you feel to your spouse. Setting a time to talk will hopefully let your partner know that this is a serious issue for you in the relationship and they will be more likely to take the conversation seriously.
Sometimes after many years together, couples tend to drift apart from one another. This could be because of a variety of reasons including not spending enough quality time together. A great way to spend time together as a couple is to find common ground. Finding a hobby or activity which you both equally enjoy could help solve this problem.
By spending quality time together doing something you both like, you’re strengthening your bond and creating fond memories together. This can put a stop to drifting apart and do wonders for your marriage.
A lack of intimacy is one of the most common reasons behind the divorce rate in the UK. This doesn’t necessarily mean sexual intimacy, a lot of couples withdraw from each other completely. If someone in the marriage feels as though they are not getting enough physical affection, they may feel rejected and build resentment up.
This can massively impact a marriage as one person may feel unloved and unwanted by the other. The way to solve this issue is by attending couples therapy as a lack of intimacy often means something needs to be worked on in the relationship.
