Cupid’s Advice:

You and your spouse don’t always see eye to eye. Lately, it seems like all you do is bicker at each other. The romance is completely gone and you begin questioning your marriage. Cupid is here to help you make the difficult decision:

1. Constant fighting: It’s one thing to argue over who’s going to cook dinner tonight, but if you’re arguing over every little thing there’s a problem. Ask yourself how many arguments you have with your husband on an average day. If that number seems high to you, it is and you should see if your spouse is noticing the issue as well. Talk to him about it; the solution may end up being divorce or separation. Don’t be afraid to talk it out though. If you don’t you both will continue being unhappy.

2. No compromises: You have been married for a few years now and want to start a family. Your husband however wants to wait and is unwilling to listen to your opinions on the subject. This should send up a red flag instantly. Having children is a major step in both of your lives. The decisions should be for you to make as a team. If you are finding it difficult to work together in your marriage, perhaps it’s time to have a long discussion with your spouse and set your priorities straight.

3. Sad all the time: If you find yourself trapped in your marriage, don’t ignore your gut instinct. Your husband doesn’t always want to go out on the weekends and makes you stay in all the time. You are left feeling guilty for wanting a different lifestyle than him. Your spouse most likely notices how sad you get, and feels as if he is holding you back from the life you truly desire. If you are upsetting each other constantly, it might be time to reconsider the marriage.
