How do you know when to call it quits on your marriage?

Cupid’s Advice:

Marriages take work. Many couples find themselves working through various problems. Whether you are attempting to save your marriage or going through a separation, sometimes it is best to sit back and see that your marriage may just not be working. Here are some telltale signs that it may be time to call it quits:

1. Everything becomes an argument: Arguing in any relationship is inevitable and healthy–to an extent. If you find that every conversation or discussion is turning into a heated argument, you are having difficultly resolving issues, and the art of compromise seems nonexistent, you may want to sit down and reevaluate your union.

2. You aren’t intimate: Intimacy is extremely important to the success of a relationship. When you lose communication and trust, chances are intimacy is closely following.

3. You or your spouse are cheating: If one, or both, of you is cheating, there is no longer a sacred bond between the two of you. Spending half your life devoted to someone and then suddenly focusing your time and thoughts on another is a clear sign that something just isn’t working.
