What behavior should result in a divorce?

On Behalf of | Sep 2, 2020 | Family Law

When you said your marriage vows, you promised to love your spouse no matter what – in both bad times and good times. Things have changed since then, and you may be starting to realize that you no longer recognize the person that you have married.

If you are wondering whether you should remain in your relationship and you are considering filing for divorce, you may be hesitant because you are unsure of whether your spouse’s behavior is poor “enough” to constitute a divorce. The following is some guidance on how to decide if you are ready to divorce.

Divorce should be based on feelings, not actions

Your spouse does not have to be terrible for you to be justified in divorcing them. It may simply be the case that you have fallen out of love and you are no longer happy in the relationship.

Adultery that you cannot forgive

Many relationships unfortunately have to deal with adultery at some point. While some spouses are able to forgive this behavior and their marriage may become stronger as a result, others react by filing for divorce.

Toxic or controlling behavior

No-one should feel trapped or controlled in a relationship. Therefore, if you’re feeling that you are not free to do the things that you want to do, you may want to consider getting a divorce.

If you are unhappy in your marriage and you live in Georgia, you should take swift action to understand the divorce laws and how they will affect you. By taking early action, you’ll have the best possible chance of a favorable outcome.
