Getting a divorce is one of the most difficult decisions someone makes in her life. There is no going back (though some people do try, and it isn’t pretty). There is a massive blow to the ego involved, and a shattering of dreams. When you marry someone, it’s because you believe, 120 percent, that you’ll spend forever with that person. You believe you two can make it through anything, and you believe it so much so that you involve contracts, you drop thousands of dollars on a wedding, and you invite everyone you care about to witness your promise to stay together forever. Getting a divorce means saying, “I was wrong about a very important factor in my life.” That can, of course, be difficult to do. And, if you did choose to marry this person, it’s because, at one point, there was so much good there. It’s hard to believe that two people who once had something great couldn’t get that back. But, sometimes, that’s the case. And, when even your closest friends begin to hint as much, it could really be time. Here are signs your friends think it’s time for a divorce.
They ask if you could go on like this forever
Your friends have started asking you to really consider whether or not you could live another five, ten, thirty years in this exact same situation. Could you bear to spend your life with things the way they are now, with your spouse? They ask you this because they don’t believe your dynamic with your partner will change.
