Cupid’s Advice:

Despite what your reasons may be, divorce can be one of the most difficult things a person experiences. No one wants to let someone they once agreed to commit their life to, go. But there comes a point when you have to face the facts:

1. You’ve communicated your issues: No matter how long you’ve been together or how well you think you know one another, most marriages fail because of the lack in communication. If you’ve both communicated your issues, listened to one another, made compromises and still haven’t seen a difference, then there might be nothing left for you to do.

2. You’ve tried professional help: Many couples steer clear of counseling because they think it’s admitting defeat. But the truth is, if you truly want to save your marriage, you’ll try anything before giving up. If you’ve been seeing a counselor consistently and both been putting in the effort, it might be time to rethink things.

3. Your partner doesn’t care anymore: It takes two to make any relationship work, just like it takes two to restore one. No matter what your issues are, if your partner is not committed to help repair the damages in your marriage, it may be time to call it quits.
