When to End a Marriage

A number one rule that many women have for ending a marriage is abuse.

If your husband is abusing you, your safety should be your first and foremost concern. The statistics say that it is unlikely that an abusive husband will stop abuse. Abuse often occurs in a cycle of violence, where the abuse reaches a peak, then drops off. But each time the cycle starts over, the abuse gets amplified.

It is never okay for your husband to verbally, psychologically or physically abuse you.

Another hard and fast rule for many woman is infidelity.

For many women, it is impossible to get over the fact that their husband has had an affair. Frequently, it isn't even the fact that the husband made a mistake and had an affair, but it is the lying.

For many relationships, after a spouse cheats, all the trust that existed in the relationship is destroyed. Some people are able to bounce back, and the cheating husband can win the wife's trust again. But for a lot of women, infidelity is a one way road.

Trust is very important to maintaining a healthy relationship.

It is your trust in your partner that allows you both to lead lives without worrying about what the other is doing when you're not around. If you don't trust your spouse at all, then you might want to try to figure out how you can fix that (assuming that trust can be restored).

It might be obvious, but it's worth stating, that ultimately, you have to make the decision.

You decided when it was time to get married, and you have to be able to decide when it is time to get a divorce.

It is usually a good thing to take the time to make a carefully thought out decision about where your marriage is, and where you want it to go. Once you put it out there that you want a divorce, there really is no way to take it back.

If you spend enough time to reflect on your relationship, you should be able to determine if you think that you can find the happiness that you want in your marriage.
