Take a look at these major signals that show you should get a divorce.

No Dispute Resolution

According to research, it is a lack of efficient conflict resolution more than a lack of communication that causes a marriage to fail. Couples who haven’t figured out how to handle differences without harming their relationship end up avoiding conflict and dispute. One or both of them has come to the conclusion that attempting to mediate a disagreement with his or her partner is futile. It’s possible that one or both of them is simply confrontation averse. The fact that someone has given up is all that matters. Differences are buried, resulting in a loss of respect, a widening gap, and a steady retreat.

Emotional Irrationality

Emotional engagement is a prerequisite for intimacy development and maintenance. An element of this is a willing discussion of feelings, both one’s own and the feelings of others. The needed elements for an intimate connection are interested in the emotional life of the other and empathic engagement in each other’s emotional life.


In most cases, emotional engagement is accompanied by a retreat of attachment. If your wife has emotionally disconnected from you, she most likely does not love you. People who are divorcing frequently state that “they have fallen out of love.” And, depending on how sour the relationship has grown, one or both of you are likely to dislike each other.

The Absence of Sex

Emotional closeness is expressed and reinforced through sex. When a couple hasn’t had s*x in a long time, it’s usually a sign that their emotional disconnection is deepening. It’s just another sign that the partners don’t like each other’s company and that the relationships are swiftly disintegrating if they aren’t already broken.
