The Titanic

Sometimes no matter how hard you try, a marriage ends in divorce. In fact, according to a report from the CDC, about 43 percent of first marriages end in separation or divorce within 15 years. The reasons why a marriage ends can be as varied as the couples themselves. How do you know when you're on a sinking ship without any hope for recovery? Some people linger for years, even decades, in unhappy relationships before they realize that the situation is hopeless. Consider these red flags if you are uncertain whether or not to stay in your marriage.

  • There is physical, mental, or emotional abuse.

  • There is chronic adultery.

  • You spend more and more time imagining what your life would be like without your partner.

  • You're indifferent from years of stored up resentment, hurt, or frustration and no longer have the energy or desire to work at the marriage anymore.

  • You don't respect or admire your partner.

  • You feel as if you're suffocating in mud and if you don't leave you'll get sick or die.
