For Texas residents whose marriages may be rocky, the thought of ending the relationship may bring relief as opposed to dread. This is just one of the signs that some experts say indicate a marriage is on the verge of ending in divorce.

Another troublesome sign for people who are in a monogamous relationship is being okay with the thought of their partner being with someone else. If the image of their partner being with someone else doesn’t bother them, it could be a sign that divorce is on the horizon.

With some couples, a clear sign that things are on the verge of falling apart is when a couple is no longer enjoying time together. They don’t laugh, there is no enjoyment, and there is no bonding. This does not mean that a couple cannot take steps to rebuild the fun in their marriage. However, the absence of fun means that there’s likely a level of resentment, which can be hard for some couples to get over.

Some marriage mates say that they stay together because they feel it is the best thing for their children. If that’s the only thing that keeps the marriage together, it could be a sign that the spouses have invested so much time and so much energy in caring for their children that they’re not dedicating any time to building a strong relationship. Some parents who have stayed together for the children and then divorced later in life say they wish they would have done it sooner because it was not until after the divorce that they realized how competitive and how disrespectful their relationship was.

A family law attorney may be able to help an individual as they go through the divorce process. They may be able to provide their client with valuable information on things like asset valuation, division of marital property, child custody, alimony and child visitation agreements.
