1. You or your spouse is cheating.

Trust is a cornerstone of all marriages. An unfaithful spouse can destroy the foundation of the relationship. There are instances when couples work to save their marriage after a spouse has an extramarital affair, but if this is a continuing pattern throughout the marriage the cheating spouse is unlikely to change, no matter how many times they may profess their regret and promise to change. At some point you, have to respect yourself and decide to strive to make a better example for your children. Don’t stay in a relationship because you are scared of being alone or breaking up the family.

2. You live separate lives.

Simply put, you aren’t really in a relationship anymore. You may live under the same roof, but you rarely spend time together. You’ve moved into separate bedrooms. You don’t plan family dinners or outings anymore.

3. You are experiencing physical changes.

You are constantly thinking about how unhappy or uncertain you are in your marriage that it is causing you to show physical symptoms. A sudden change in weight, insomnia, panic attacks, headaches, or hive break outs can all be signs that you should consider different options. You find yourself daydreaming about a life outside of this marriage.

4. You are a one-man show.

The beginning of the marriage was full of promises of how each of you would support each other, but now, without any contribution from your spouse, you find yourself burning candles at both ends to keep your family afloat. You are the one responsible for financially supporting the family, transporting the kids to school and all their activities, helping with homework, cleaning, cooking, and errand running etc. You continue to ask for your spouse’s contribution but never see any effort.

 5. You are in an abusive relationship.

Abuse isn’t just physical. It comes in all forms, mental, emotional, psychological, and physical etc., and it doesn’t have to be a constant in your life.
