When it comes to matters of the heart, it’s not always easy to hide how you feel about your partner. The same goes for the other way around. Even though your spouse may think they aren’t obvious about wanting to leave you, the truth is that the signs are easy to see if you look closely enough.
Some indications are more subtle than others, while you may blatantly notice certain behaviors. When you start seeing signs that they no longer want to stay together, you may start wondering if they’re considering getting a divorce. If you’re not on the same page, this can leave you feeling helpless and heartbroken. However, if you’re also feeling less than stellar about your partner, this may come as good news.
However, you may not be sure if the signs you’re saying point towards divorce. Here are some of the most obvious signs that your spouse may be considering leaving you.
They Stop Communicating
Once upon a time, you may have laughed together all the time, which is why you decided to get married in the first place. Then perhaps over the years, you started bickering.
However, when one day you stop laughing and bickering, this is an indication of indifference. When they stop communicating altogether, this is a red flag.
In most cases, the lack of communication may even indicate infidelity.
No Longer Makes an Effort To Spend Time Together
Has your spouse stopped asking what you’re up to or trying to include you in their plans? Maybe they’ve started making their own plans which have nothing to do with you.
If you’re responded to with hostility when you bring up why you’re no longer part of their plans, then this is reason to believe that they are no longer interested in keeping your company.
They Stop Being Affectionate
Losing the intimacy between you is one thing. However, when they stop being affectionate altogether and even stop saying, “I love you,” then it’s likely a reflection of how they’re feeling.
Try to make an effort to break the ice and engage in intimacy. If you’re met with rejection, it’s probably a sign that they’re not interested in being married anymore.
Does your spouse seem more private than usual? Are they hiding their phone or changing their passwords? Do they seem suspicious when you ask them what they’re up to or where they’re going?
While this may not necessarily indicate infidelity, it does suggest that they don’t want to let you into their life.
They Seem Irritated With You
Over time, your spouse may start to grow tired of you, which results in contempt. If everything you do or say starts to visibility irritate them, then it’s time you sit down and have a conversation about whether you still love each other.
