When you get married, you are convinced that you have made the best choice. But, according to statistics, 1 out of 4 marriages end with a divorce. And then it comes very hard to believe in the saying “and they lived happily ever after.” Well, it seems many people live in an unhappy marriage.
Would You Stay in an Unhappy Marriage?
No matter how difficult it may seem, there are many reasons why is not worth it to stay in an unhappy marriage.
You have more chances to meet the right person!
When you are married, you keep, unconsciously, distance to the opposite sex, not to give reasons of jealousy to your husband/wife. In this way, you miss the opportunity to meet the wonderful people who might become your friends.
This is not a bad thing when you have a happy marriage. But if you feel that marriage is choking you, you may not have met the right person for you yet. You don’t have to feel the pressure to stay with someone for life if that endangers your health and fulfillment as a woman.
You can devote all your energy to personal development!
If you are caught in an unhappy long-term marriage, you are putting your emotional health at risk and you risk losing touch with yourself. Do you remember the hobbies and small pleasures that brought you so much joy once? Does your husband support your visions and decisions? Do you like the life you are going to at this moment? If the answer to the above questions is “no”, then it may be time to make a change in your life.
An unhappy marriage prevents you from doing the things you want or get the ones that you deserve. After divorce, you stop devoting the energy to a relationship that is no longer working and you use it for the things that matter in your life.
You feel happier!
When you get out of an unhappy marriage, you lose a husband, but you gain happiness. Life is too short to waste it with unhealthy relationships. And if you feel that your marriage makes you unhappy and unfulfilled, then maybe it’s time to give it up.
An unhappy marriage can destroy your health!
Your kids will be happier too!
Many couples realize that they are unhappy and yet remain together for the sake of the children. But this is not a good idea. Children feel the sarcasm and understand the quarrels between you and are constantly stressed by the tension that reigns in an unhappy marriage. Do not forget the golden rule: a happy parent means a happy child.
Your health will improve!
Many people think marriage can improve your health, but in case of unfortunate marriage, this rule is no longer working. On the contrary, a marriage marked by quarrels and conflicts can seriously damage your health, so it’s better and healthier to be alone than caught in a relationship that doesn’t work.
You’ll start looking better!
Even if you intend to go on a diet or do sports intensively after divorce, you’ll notice some unexpected changes in your appearance. Many people who divorced said that they felt an inner transformation and began to feel better and full of life. This change improved their self-confidence.
