The Top 3 Warning Signs for Divorce

The list below are three (3) of the most common warning signs for divorce, as seen by our divorce attorneys

1) YOUR MARRIAGE IS A ONE-WAY STREET. Your spouse starts to make financial decisions and does not include you in them. Suddenly you wake up and there is a new BMW in the garage you did not know about, or money is being removed from the accounts. This is a warning sign for divorce and that the marriage is no longer a joint enterprise and that they may be starting “divorce financial planning.”

This is a sign that the marriage is no longer a joint enterprise and that they may be starting “divorce financial planning.”

2) YOUR SPOUSE IS ON MISSING PERSONS LISTS

There unexplained gaps in your spouse’s whereabouts–especially if overnight. No there are generally not work meetings/non-spouse work parties overnight. If your spouse is buying lots of new clothes, losing weight, going to the gym, and abnormally focusing on their appearance, while also having missing gaps of time, chances are there is an affair, or a potential for one.

3) WHEN CLEANING THE BATHROOM IS MORE APPEALING THAN SPENDING A NIGHT WITH YOUR SPOUSE

You have given up hope–the “d” (divorce) word is frequently used, there is a lack of physical and/or emotion intimacy, and you don’t care where your spouse is. If being on a trip without your spouse makes you giddy, it may be a huge warning sign for divorce. Indifference will destroy a marriage.
