Wanting out is a good enough reason to end a marriage

On Behalf of | Apr 23, 2020 | Family Law

You may feel as if you need come up with a tangible reason to end a relationship before you seek a divorce. However, the truth is that you can get a divorce in Georgia just because you aren’t happy in your relationship. Let’s take a look at some common reasons why individuals want to leave their spouses.

No one should endure domestic abuse

If you are being physically or emotionally abused by your spouse, it is generally a good idea to get out of the relationship as soon as possible. Unless your spouse wants to change his or her ways, there is nothing that you can do to stop the behavior. It is worth noting that there was nothing that you did to encourage or provoke the abusive behavior. Instead, it was caused by a flaw in your spouse’s personality or character.

People change over time

There is a good chance that your interests, goals and priorities will change over the course of your life. While this doesn’t mean that your marriage is doomed to fail, it could mean that you see your partner in a different way as time passes. Without good communication and the feeling that your spouse is truly a partner in what you’re trying to accomplish, you may discover that you’re better off alone.

There is a lack of intimacy

A lack of intimacy can cause couples to become distant over time. In some cases, this means that you spend less time in the bedroom together or sleep in separate rooms entirely. It could also mean that you spend less time cuddling on the couch or talking about your day while eating dinner. If you feel like your needs aren’t being met, it may be a sign that a relationship has run its course.

If you are planning on dissolving your marriage, it may be a good idea to meet with an attorney. There are a number of procedural steps to take that an attorney can outline.
