Deciding on whether to divorce your spouse can take years to do. No one wants to accept that their marriage has failed, because this was never their intention when they became married.

However, if you are feeling deeply unhappy in your marital relationship, it is important that you address the existing problems so that you can start to enjoy your life again. There can be many reasons why a marriage can fail. However, by working on some of these root problems, many couples manage to rekindle their relationship and to live a happy life together. Ultimately, though, it is important that you reflect on the situation and that you take whatever action will facilitate your own peace of mind and joy again.

What questions should I ask myself about my relationship?

When you have been married for many years, it is likely that you have been through some difficult times with your spouse. If disappointments and breaches of trust are left unaddressed, resentment can build up over time. If you are considering filing for a divorce, it is important that you process and assess the built-up resentment that you might have for your spouse. This can affect every aspect of a marriage. Through therapy and counseling, it can be possible to resolve the issues that have led to the resentment. As a result, the health of a marriage can possibly be restored.

If you have been unfaithful or if you are thinking about being unfaithful to your spouse, it is important that you take the time to examine what might be causing you to have those feelings. You might, for example, be feeling emotionally neglected by your spouse, or you may be getting the feeling that your spouse is no longer attracted to you. There could be ways to work through these feelings, or you might conclude that there is no way for the marriage to be salvaged.
