Marriages end for many different reasons. But New York couples who find themselves headed for divorce may find they have some things in common with each other when walking down the path toward ending their marriages. Experts suggest that there are some common reasons couples end up divorcing. If these issues aren’t rectified, they can fester and ultimately partners may find themselves discussing separation or divorce.
It seems that infidelity is a leading cause of divorce as is a lack of communication. Extramarital affairs lead the way in the cause of divorce, but when a couple doesn’t communicate openly about the issues they may be having, it may cause one or both to stray in a marriage. If couples are faithful to each other, but are having financial difficulties, their relationship may be strained and that could ultimately lead to the parting of ways.
Money is actually the second biggest cause for divorce, following infidelity. If a couple constantly argues about every little thing, it may wreak havoc in a relationship, leading to its eventual demise. Experts say, too, that as superficial as it may seem, if a partner gains weight, it could also spell disaster for the marriage since it may cause intimacy issues. Other things that may cause divorce are a lack of intimacy, unrealistic expectations about the marriage, a lack of equality between spouses, being ill-prepared for marriage and abuse.
Although some reasons for divorce are common, all couples have their own reasons for deciding to end their marriages. Those who are thinking about divorce may find it helpful to speak with a New York lawyer experienced in the divorce process and the laws that govern that process. Divorce can seem to be a scary prospect, but having some knowledge about what to expect may make the road less rough.
