Marital satisfaction and divorce

Married couples make the decision to end their marriages for an array of reasons. Sometimes, a marriage is seemingly healthy and a couple’s relationship is progressing well, until one incident (such as an affair or an episode of domestic violence) brings the marriage to an end. In other instances, a couple may be struggling with long-term resentment or marital challenges and finally decide to separate. There are many factors that play a role in divorce and marital satisfaction (or a lack thereof) is an important part of a married couple’s relationship.

Often, marital satisfaction is high in the weeks and months after a couple is married. Each spouse may have a bright outlook on their future and their relationship. However, these positive feelings can deteriorate over time and there are a number of situations in which marital dissatisfaction may increase. For example, a couple’s relationship may deteriorate over time or change after a spouse is seriously hurt and struggling with a permanent disability. Other live events, such as the birth of a child, can lead to friction in a relationship as well. Ultimately, when a couple is very dissatisfied in their relationship, their marriage is more likely to fail.

Sometimes, differences are irreconcilable, and divorce is the best way forward. Counseling may work for some couples, while others may not ever be able to see eye-to-eye or resolve their dissatisfaction. When divorce becomes necessary, it is important to approach the process with care. Our divorce page has more on legal topics concerning filing for divorce.
