While infidelity does cause marriages to end, it’s often much more complicated than that. When two people are headed for divorce, there are many reasons and combinations of factors that have seen them arrive at this place. Around one in three marriages in Australia will end in divorce, with the average length of marriage for those who get divorced about 12 years.
Here are some of the major reasons why:
1. Communication difficulties
The breakdown in communication is a major reason for many marriages ending. When two partners no longer share information, share feelings, or talk about what’s going on, it is a recipe for disaster. If communications become caustic, tense or strained and you are always bickering, can’t be civil or are giving each other the silent treatment all the time, you’ve got a toxic communication environment and eventually, something will have to give. via lifehacker.com
