How can I tell if my marriage is in trouble?

For Denver couples experiencing problems in their marriage, divorce might not always be an option. However, there are some signs that a marriage is headed towards its end, and it's important for couples to be aware of these signs so they can either take the steps necessary to save their marriages or prepare themselves for divorce. Business Insider explains some of the signs of a troubled marriage and why they often point to the possibility of divorce. 

Stonewalling is commonplace

Stonewalling occurs when a spouse refuses to communicate about the marriage. Many marriage counselors consider this an essential sign that divorce is imminent since it's virtually impossible to work through issues when one person isn't communicating. Listening is key to working out issues, and when a person stonewalls they're likely to ignore their partner's thoughts and feelings about the marriage and why it isn't working. 

Fights about money occur frequently

Many married couples have fights over financial issues. While proper management of finances is important for a healthy union, problems relating to money also involve trust. For instance, if you and your spouse agree on a budget and then he or she makes a large purchase without your approval, it's natural to feel that trust has been broken. Worries about money also put stress on a relationship, which causes tension and strain between partners. 

One spouse moves further and further away

If you recognize issues in your marriage it's natural that you'd want to work them out. This is only beneficial if your spouse is responsive. If not, it may feel like you're endlessly pursuing your spouse while he or she increases the distance. The more you pursue and are rejected, the more strained your connection will become. This can lead to the other party shutting down also, which often leads to the end of a marriage.
