Divorce: Behaviors that might place a strain on a relationship

Many married couples in California and elsewhere may encounter at least some level of tension over the course of the relationship. While in some cases, a couple might be able to work through any issues that arise, certain issues could place a significant strain on the marriage. Studies suggest there are certain behaviors that may increase the chances that a couple will encounter issues that leave them wondering if divorce is the healthiest path for everyone involved.

While dealing with confrontation may seem intimidating at times, studies indicate that withdrawing from or attempting to avoid conflict could prove detrimental. Studies suggest that such behavior could leave important issues unresolved and leave the other party feeling as though their needs do not matter. Studies also indicate that being unable to let go of previous arguments and move on may also be harmful, as grudges can place a significant weight on a relationship.

In some cases, both parties in a marriage may also experience varying degrees of success, and any feelings of jealousy that arise could have a negative impact on matters. Scenarios in which one person constantly makes important decisions without speaking with his or her spouse could also prove harmful to the marriage. Studies also indicate that couples who constantly argue over seemingly insignificant matters may also be more inclined to consider taking separate paths in life.

While some couples may wish to take every possible measure to work through their issues, in some cases, there may come a time when divorce is the best path for everyone. When facing the end of a marriage, a person could benefit from speaking with a family law attorney early on for advice on what to expect from the process. An attorney can work with a client in California in forming a strategy to pursue the most favorable outcome achievable concerning his or her future during subsequent divorce proceedings.
