A rough patch in a marriage can throw up a host of emotions. While men would show signs of getting fed up and spend more time outside home, women tend to pine and moan more and get into depression. As it normally happens, such rough patches are more often than not, temporary in nature and things do get sorted out sooner than the couple imagined.
But in case you ‘feel’ that your marriage has got into serious trouble, you need to be 100% sure when your marriage is over. Remember there is no place for ambiguity or uncertainty here. Either it is on or off – it is really as simple as that. Stop relying on our gut feel as this can unnecessarily lead you onto several baseless conclusions, which can further worsen the situation.
But how can you know for sure when your marriage is over? Go through these tell-tale signs which can more or less confirm when your marriage is over:
o Your partner avoids any kind of open communication with you.
o You know when your marriage is over when your partner does not meet you eye-to-eye. The overall attitude is elusive and dodgy.
o The mood of your spouse is perpetually edgy and irritable. He or she shouts at anything you say irrespective of the company around. He or she may even insult you in public.
o You know when your marriage is over when there is no more sharing of information. Communication only hovers around some common issues of the house like kids, report cards and so on.
o You are sure when your marriage is over when your spouse refuses sex or any attempts towards intimacy.
o Your spouse develops a new set of hobby or pastime which forces him or her to stay out of home and he or she seems to love it.
o Your spouse is no longer interested in your life, problems, your health and so on.
o Your spouse cites a new excuse to stay out every time there is a family event or something similar, where he or she has to spend time in your company.
