Does a change in your partner indicate a divorce is coming?

On Behalf of | Nov 15, 2022 | Divorce |

If you get divorced, you know that it’s important to understand that it’s coming as far in advance as possible. This gives you ample time to consider the future, define your goals and plan and in advance so that you’re ready for the court process.

But what exactly should you look for? If you notice a change in your partner, does that mean that they’re thinking about getting a divorce?

They stop arguing

One way that this can happen is if your partner stops disagreeing with you. Some couples who have been involved in arguments for a long time just think this is how the relationship is. But if it stops, rather than meaning things are getting better, it may mean your spouse has simply decided to stop arguing and get divorced.

A change in priorities

You may also realize that they just don’t prioritize spending time together like they used to. Maybe they look for excuses to stay late at work or spend time with friends. Couples do need time on their own, but a significant shift to more of this alone time could mean they’re unhappy.

Picking conflicts

On the opposite side of the spectrum, when compared with the first change, you may notice that it seems like every little thing becomes an argument. This could also be an indicator that your spouse is considering a divorce because they’re feeling frustrated with you in general. Little things that shouldn’t cause conflicts are suddenly beginning to do so, and that’s a reflection of the state of the marriage.

If you do end up getting divorced, just make sure you know what legal steps you need to take.
