Getting married is something that many assume they’ll only do once in a lifetime. Unfortunately, in some cases, our enthusiasm and hope that the marriage will last a lifetime dwindles and things often get difficult.
Since there’s no rulebook for marriage, sometimes the hard times get the best of us. The inability to move past a struggle or move forward, together, as a couple, sometimes poses an insurmountable obstacle to continued happiness.
When things are tough and couples worry that they’ll never be on the same terms that they once were, divorce might be considered as the next step. While divorce is a choice that only the couple can make, it might be a good idea to try marriage counseling, first. Some couples do well with counseling. Even then, making the decision to get a divorce is up to the couple. No one else can make that decision.
There are several things to consider once you’ve begun to discuss divorce. While those that are in physical danger might need to leave immediately, those that are safe and able to think long and hard about divorce should consider the following.

Do you want a better marriage? Being unhappy in a marriage can often lead to disagreements for no reason, finding yourself spending time apart and contemplating divorce. Those marriages are often the ones that could be saved, if both adults are willing. An unsalvageable marriage is one where the participants cannot work through the challenges and difficulty. They’re unable to resolve problems and divorce is really the only answer.
Will they seek therapy? Marriage counseling or couples therapy may work great for some, but that’s not always the case. Those that want to try and work through the bad times might seek help with therapy. It’s a great last shot, for those that want to do all they can to salvage their marriage.
