The signs of an unhappy marriage are quite obvious as there is a lack of communication, intimacy,trust, you spend more time away from the home with friends, you find yourself looking online for a connection with someone else, sex is just that, sex, there is no more touching, handholding, passionate kissing. When your relationship is plagued by these changes then you no longer have a healthy relationship.
Everyone deserves so much more and yes it is true relationships die because growth of both individuals is inevitable. Some say they stay for the children but what happens when the children grow up and leave home?? So many feel guilt when children are involved and yes the kids do turn on their parents, especially the one that left. We cannot live for our children or through our children and we must find our own happiness.
We owe it to ourselves to be happy and being in love is so important to our mental health. It is so hard to walk away from an unsatisfying relationship but we have to get our needs met or we become unbearable to live with. You can always tell when two people have grown apart just by watching their body language there is distance between the two, they no longer walk hand in hand or chat and smile. When it’s over it’s over and there is no turning back.
