Raise your hand if you want to get married only to be perpetually unhappy or end up seeking a divorce? Of course not. It is a waste of time and energy. But, most people don't go into their marriages thinking that it is a temporary arrangement. You meet, fall in love, get engaged, eventually tie the knot, and maybe throw some kids into the mix. For the lucky ones, it works out and there's a lifetime of happiness. But, for others, the bickering and animosity begins, and eventually they engage in fights that show your marriage is over.
If only marriages were like fairy tales; one day you exchange vows and wedding bands, and the next you live happily ever after. But anyone who's been in a long-term relationship can tell you that this is not the case. Marriage takes work, patience, and compromise. Both parties need to be on the same page, willing to work through the rough parts and cherish the good times. If one of you stops trying, the relationship is in trouble. If both of your stop trying, there is little sense in staying together.
Here are some of the fights you may have in your marriage that may mean it's over.
