Why does divorce happen?

Nobody goes into their marriage looking forward to the day when they will divorce. Even so, thousands of couples go down this path every year.

If you know why divorce happens, you may be able to take steps to preventing it. It's not always easy, but it's possible. Some of the most common reasons for a divorce include:

-- Getting married for the wrong reasons in the first place.

-- An inability for both partners to retain their individual identities.

-- A lack of common goals, which can eventually pull the couple apart.

-- Unrealistic expectations in regard to what the marriage will bring.

-- Financial challenges, such as one spouse losing his or her job.

-- Two different sets of priorities.

-- Inability to resolve conflicts in an appropriate manner.

As one half of a married couple, it's imperative to realize that you will be faced with challenges on a regular basis. If you know how to deal with each one, you can avoid situation deteriorating. If you don't, however, there is a greater chance of divorce.

Although nobody wants to divorce, there is a chance that you could find yourself in this situation at some point. If you do, you need to focus on the future and making things right for yourself, and any children you may have.

Just as when you got married, there is a lot that goes into the divorce process. If you find that you are headed in this direction, learn more about your legal rights and which steps you need to take to protect your interests.
