Love May Not Be Enough
An unintended byproduct of the sometimes overenthusiastic portrayals of romance in books, television shows, and movies is that many people develop unrealistic expectations for their relationships and marriages. The reality of this disconnect is evidenced by the high rate of divorce in America, which is estimated to fall anywhere from 40 % - 60 %, with the number trending ever upward. This statistic is somewhat inflated by the rising prevalence of persons who marry and divorce repeatedly.
If the circumstances of your married life have you considering the possibility of filing for divorce, contact the Denton divorce lawyers of Alexander & Associates at 972-420-6560. Such a significant decision should never be made lightly, and experienced legal counsel can help you determine the best course of action for your situation.
Factors that Lead to the Fall
It is easy to be swept away by the torrent of emotions that accompany newfound love. That “honeymoon” period can lead you to overlook potential roadblocks for your long-term relationship and marriage, and it can distort your own evaluation of the situation. But as time passes and those illusions fade, the fact that people change over time becomes quite clear, and sometimes those changes pull a couple apart. Some factors that can elevate the likelihood of a divorce include:
- Marrying young (before age 26)
- Stunted financial stability and educational standing
- The development of different goals and ideals
Nobody enters a marriage with the expectation that it will fail. Personal growth is never a failure, and when that drives a couple apart it is many things, but a failure is not one of them. If you’ve found yourself in this situation, contact the Denton divorce lawyers of Alexander & Associates at 972-420-6560.
