7 Warning Signs

7 Warning signs that your marriage is in trouble.

  1. Fighting has become the rule rather than the exception to the rule Broken Home
  2. You find yourself looking outside the relationship for comfort, care, and understanding
  3. You can’t remember what attracted you to your partner in the first place.
  4. There is little or no intimacy in your relationship – sleeping in different rooms or different beds, lack of interest, anger, and hostility so that intimacy is out of the question.
  5. Spending very little time together, friends seems to be more important than your partner.
  6. Reactions to situations are disproportionate to the content of the disagreement (Example: feeling your partner doesn’t love you because she/he didn’t like the meal you cooked.)
  7. Feeling helpless and hopeless to change anything.  Feeling done with the relationship, but unclear as to where to go and what to do.  Feeling of anger, resentment, pain, and desperation are predominate.

If any of these describes your marriage then your marriage is already in trouble and something must be done before the situation escalates to something more severe, such as affairs, extreme arguments, increased jealousy, rape or even physical or verbal abuse.

Do not fall into the belief that everything will get better in time, in fact what usually will happen is an increase in resentment and anger, than after that usually things will only get worse.
