In the meantime, read on to learn five signs that your marriage may end in divorce:
- Young Marriage
If you married young, then there is a higher chance that you will get divorced, according to Good Housekeeping Magazine. Many young couples end up in marriage counseling in their 40s. The main reason is that couples who marry young feel like they may have missed out on opportunities in their younger years.
People also change significantly between the ages 18 and 40. As a result, divorce is much more common for those who marry young than for couples who marry in their mid to late 30s.
- Pre-Wedding Jitters from the Bride
A few nerves before the Big Day are common, but according to TIME, serious pre-wedding jitters and doubts may also be warning signs of a short marriage. Pre-wedding doubts on behalf of the bride double the odds that the couple will get divorced. The situation is not as serious when the groom has doubts; in fact, according to the study, this did not have an impact on the outcome of the marriage.
- Money Issues
If you or your spouse has money issues, then your financial woes may well lead to an early divorce. According to Good Housekeeping, many divorces correlate with poverty. This is particularly true when one spouse spends more than the other. It creates tension and unease in the marriage. An imbalance in the salary can also create an untenable situation that causes conflict.
- Challenging Children
Challenging children can be the downfall of a marriage if not handled correctly. Many marriages will end in divorce if the child has issues such ADHD because it places a significant strain on the relationship.
- History of Divorce
According to a study by CJS, if there is a history of divorce in your family, then there is a higher chance that the current marriage will also end in divorce. According to the research, if your parents divorced, then you are 40 percent more likely to do the same.
