Top Reasons For Divorce - 3 Ways to Kill a Marriage

Couples often try to solve their relationship problems by doing the same things over and over again, hoping that "this time" things will miraculously turn out differently.
The bad news about this is that it never happens.
In order to make things better, you need to change how you relate to each other.
The first step in this process it to recognize destructive relationship habits that you and your spouse have.
Once you've identified them, you can work on fixing them.
Here are 3 common relationship habits that can absolutely kill a marriage.
If you recognize any of these in your marriage, it might be time to get some help.
  1. Blaming.
    When things aren't going well in a marriage, it's easy to blame the other person.
    Blaming allows you to feel righteous - you feel clean for a moment, but you don't get anywhere in the long run.
  2. Contempt.
    Quite often, contempt shows not by what you say, but by the tone in your voice.
    It can make your spouse feel shame, embarrassment, or bad about themselves.
    They might get angry and shoot back at you with contempt of their own.
  3. Pace.
    In a good relationship, the pace of the conversation starts out slow, then picks up, then it slows down again.
    If a bad relationship, the pace is moving fast and it stays there.
    It makes it difficult to communicate, because both partners are trying to talk over the other one.
These are 3 "marriage killing" relationship habits that you really need to watch out for.
