How to know when divorce is the best possible option

Many Texas couples spend years trying to repair their marriage. Few spouses are willing to give up easily on a relationship that they intended to last the duration of their lifetime. However, there are certain circumstances under which a marriage is simply untenable and where divorce may be the best possible option.

One example lies in couples who have tried marriage counseling and found no reward for those efforts. When both spouses make a sincere attempt to participate in counseling yet are unable to resolve lingering issues, it may be a sign that they've grown apart. In other cases, too much damage has been done, and it is impossible to rebuild trust and reach forgiveness.

Another example is when one or both partners is seriously considering an extramarital affair. Cheating leads to the end of many marriages, but even the urge to cheat indicates a serious underlying problem. Spouses who find themselves frequently weighing the pros and cons of an extramarital affair may want to consider ending their marriage.

Divorce is never an outcome with which any spouse is comfortable. Most people take their vows with the full intent of spending the rest of their lives with that individual. However, there are cases in which Texas spouses should consider whether divorce may be a better option, and whether happiness might be found on a new horizon. In many cases, when asked about their experience years later, many people wish that they had called it quits long before they actually filed for divorce.
