Major reasons for marital breakups

On Behalf of | May 9, 2024 | Divorce

Going through a divorce is inevitable for some couples in Florida. However, in some cases, a marriage that appears to be broken can be mended before divorce papers are filed. Here is a look at a couple of common reasons why people get divorced and how these issues may be addressed. 

Top causes of divorce and ways to prevent it 

A major reason for divorce is constant arguing. This is because arguing is the antithesis of successful communication. Learning to communicate appropriately and accept the other person’s emotional needs may help minimize arguing. This includes toxic communication behaviors, such as constantly criticizing the other party or being verbally abusive. 

Another reason why divorce may happen is if two spouses are not intimate. Research indicates that women’s physical fulfillment is dependent on emotional connection. For this reason, it is critical that spouses prioritize their emotional connection to enhance their intimacy and personal relationship. 

How a family law attorney can help 

If an individual cannot reconcile his or her differences with a spouse and is contemplating divorce, it may behoove the individual to contact a family law attorney in Florida as soon as possible. The attorney can help this individual make educated decisions regarding divorce matters such as property division, spousal support, child support and child custody and pursue a fair and comprehensive settlement with the other party. The attorney will strive to ensure that his or her client’s rights and best interests are upheld during each phase of the divorce proceeding.
