The Top 4 Common Reasons for Divorce

There are numerous reasons on why married couples get divorced. However,throughtout my couple counselling that I conduct, there are 4 main causes that led to divorce.

1. Infidelity

This is probably the world's common cause for a divorce. Spouses may be unfaithful consistently during an affair, intermittently, or just once in a one night stand.

Couples should sit down and talk about it, find out the reason that led to the affair. The common explanations for unfaithfulness include resentment or anger (with the other spouse),sexual boredom, lack of communication and many of the other causes of marital failure.

2. Lack of Communication

In any marriage, Communication is the KEY to success. Failure to communicate will led to conflicts among many other things.

In extreme cases, a growing inability to deal with any verbal exchanges without conflict could be indicative of a much more serious problem that requires the attention of a mental health professional.

3. Finances

Spouses found out that either one is spending way above the budget or incurring more debts than before.

4. Interference

Interference be it from families or friends often lead to complications and complications will lead to conflicts and conflicts will eventually lead to divorce.

Your spouse would not want a third party to know the issues that you face. Your spouse probably feels that this is an issue for the both of you to work together.

Recommended Reading: I love to recommend a Co-author of a great book on saving marriages. I am using some of her methods for counselling and the results are great.
