The statistic that 50% of marriages end in divorce has been highly debated and disputed over the last few years, yet that number just keeps swirling around.
There are several reasons why people have failed marriages but below are just five of them.
An abusive relationship is likely unsalvageable and needs to end. Abuse is never acceptable and no one deserves it or should have to live with it. It’s important to seek support if you are dealing with abuse in your marriage.
2.You’re constantly criticizing your partner—or vice versa.
We all get cranky. (Hello, would it kill you to choose the restaurant for once?) But you need to determine if your frustration is stemming from an actual lack of respect for your plus one, or if you’re just having a bad day. In this present day Nigeria , a lot of men are frustrated but that doesn’t give you room for criticizing your wife and children Everytime.
3.Flaws And Faults Are Used As “Jokes”
If one of you makes light of a mistake once to ease tension, that’s fine. But if one partner is constantly “joking” about the other’s faults and flaws, this can cause resentment and generate passive-aggressive behavior in the relationship.
Finances, in general, can be a source of contention in marriage, whether it’s in the first five years or the next 20. However, student loans, something many young couples are saddled with, can prove to be a large burden in a marriage’s early stages.
- Your inability to sustain God’s presence in your marriage.
God’s purpose for the marriage relationship is to be the door of the Christian home. The loving relationship between wife and husband should give the most clear blueprint of Christ’s love. The representation provides to the church, children, and the world would genuinely draw others to the love of Christ. Someone might be lucky enough to have a family were they don’t give a damn about Christianity or anything pertaining to God and there marriage would still be going fine and smooth.
But , everybody’s destiny is not the same , upholding God’s presence might be one of the necessary requirements for your marriage to be sustainable. Therefore , since we do not know what lies ahead of us , wouldn’t it be better that you teach your children , your wife and yourself the principles of God’s kingdom ?
