5 common reasons marriages end in divorce


13 October 2020

By Farhad Islam
  1. Money. As finances are becoming more stretched for so many households, one of the top reasons couples seek marriage counselling is financial issues.
  2. Infidelity. Across history extramarital affairs have ended countless marriages. However infidelity is not what it used to be with just face-to-face encounters. Social media platforms make easier for intimate exchanges to be made via text or video calls – till caught out.
  3. Constant arguing. Now more than ever there are more pressures upon relationships. Nonstop bickering over children, work, money, or chores, compound problems often beyond repair.
  4. Lack of intimacy. Lack of intimacy is not just physical; it can also be a lack of emotional connection or interest. With increased working hours and general pressures of life, time can be scarce leading to people drifting apart.
  5. Substance abuse. Alcohol and/or drugs abuse can put a huge strain on a relationship, not just emotionally but physically and financially. Addiction changes a person’s priorities, and not for the better.

Whilst not all relationships can be saved, many can with the help of counselling. However when things come to a head and the relationship is over, it is important you get the right legal advice to ensure matters end as amicably as possible. Where ever possible we take a non-confrontational approach to finding the best all round solution. However when needed we have the experience and determination to get the best possible result.
