Can my marital struggles be overcome?

All married couples go through struggles, both due to external factors and due to issues within the marriage. It could be said that the way these issues are handled is the key to whether a marriage will be successful. You can only control the way you handle the situation, and you may feel frustrated by your spouse's lack of effort and support.

If you are going through marital struggles and are contemplating divorce, it is important that you consider how your marital struggles could possibly be overcome before filing for a divorce. Some issues, especially externally rooted ones, can be fixed. But other problems can be irreconcilable.

Marital problems due to finances

If you and your spouse are struggling financially, this can put a significant strain on your marriage. It is vital that you get on the same page regarding your budgeting priorities in this case, and that you determine a game plan for getting back on track, where you both can work as a team. If you are frustrated by your spouse's impulsive spending, for example, this can be problematic, but there could be a solution. It's possible to both make payments to a joint account that is used only for necessities. Your spouse could then have a personal account that could be spent on whatever he or she chooses.

Marital problems due to disinterest or unfaithfulness

The honeymoon phase of a marriage never lasts forever. Many married couples manage to evolve their relationship into a loving companionship, but, unfortunately, other couples become disinterested in each other, and this can sometimes lead to unfaithfulness.

Going to counseling or couple's therapy can help to address the root problems that is causing this situation. If both couples are willing to put in the work, it can be possible for the spark and love in a marriage to be successfully revived.

If you are going through issues in your marriage, you should make sure that you have explored different options regarding saving your relationship. If you think that divorce is a possibility, you could also look into the way that divorce law in Colorado would apply to your specific circumstances. By doing this, you will be more empowered to make the right choice for you.
