Divorce is not a topic that married, or engaged to be married couples, ever want to broach in conversation. However, it’s always best to be prepared and open – why avoid a discussion that could help your marriage stick in the long run?
The marriage-divorce ratio in the UK is encroaching on 2:1, with 44% of marriages resulting in separation for couples. Surprisingly then, a survey conducted by relationship support experts Relate showed that currently, out of the 5,000 people who were surveyed, 78% felt happy, and even perfect about their relationship. Only 13% of those 5,000 people said that they occasionally regretted getting married or civil-partnered, so why is the divorce ratio so high for UK couples?
Sometimes, a relationship needs the intervention of a family law specialist. However, the infographic below lays out the information you may need to keep your marriage in tip-top condition and steer it away from the path of divorce. It details the top 10 most common disruptions in a marriage, as well as the 7 signs one should be on the lookout for, in order to address the situations and hopefully fix them. Every marriage has its ups and downs, and with the gap between the number of marriages and divorces growing further and further apart, it’s proof that couples now are working harder at keeping theirs together.
