Marriage is not always easy — it can be a rocky road littered with potholes and ups and downs. Married couples may from time to time question their commitment to each other. For most, the positives of marriage override these concerns and life continues on, but for more than 40 percent of married couples, this is not the case.
Divorce is a huge decision, one that doesn’t happen overnight, or even over several weeks or months. No one goes to bed feeling great about a marriage and wakes up the next morning deciding to seek divorce. Quite often this decision is reached after years of debate, and sometimes that debate goes on without one’s spouse even being aware there is a problem. But once a spouse finally decides to divorce, it’s unlikely he or she will be willing to retrace the chosen path.
