Top Six Reasons for Marriage Separation

Sep 13, 2008
Many couples who are considering divorce often choose to try marriage separation before making that final legal split. There are many who say that marriage separation has actually saved their relationship and made things much better. Of course, there are other couples that marriage separation just doesn't work for. It is dependent upon your unique situation and your spouse and many other variables. Here is some more information on the top six reasons for marriage separation.

Infidelity -

This is a big one. Many times, when you've been cheated on, you just don't know if you can forgive your spouse. Some individuals wonder if they will always think of their spouse cheating and if they will ever be able to get over it. Marriage separation allows couples more time to think and reflect on their relationship and whether the cheating was too much to forgive. After a certain period of time, they can usually determine whether to move on without their spouse or with them.

Financial Reasons -

While many people don't think money would play a huge part in the health of a relationship, studies and research shows that it does! Couples disagree on how and when the money should be spent, the amount that was spent and much more. A marriage separation allows them to try and work their problems out and puts things into a better perspective.

Communication -

We all know communication plays a huge role in the health of a marriage. When couples cannot effectively communicate, it's only a matter of time before problems occur. A marriage separation allows them the chance to practice better communication in order to rebuild the health of their marriage.

Family Problems -

Our family (such as mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers and others) can sometimes cause problems in our marriage. For instance, if you have an interfering mother-in-law or you don't get along with your sister-in-law, problems can occur within the marriage. Separation allows the couple to figure out how to best solve their problems with the family.

Child Discipline -

Many couples disagree on how the children should be disciplined and since most of us really care how our children turn out - this can be a source of many problems. Couples use marriage separation in this case to cool off and decide on a universal method of discipline or one that they can both agree to and follow through with.

Careers -

Unfortunately, for many of us, a career can cause problems. If our spouse is feeling neglected, lonely or upset because of our jobs - there is usually a lot of anger and hurt feelings. A marriage separation allows the couple the chance to decide what is going to happen and puts things into perspective as well.

Because of these top six reasons for marriage separation and many other reasons, couples often need time to think and reflect. Marriage separation allows them this option and they can better decide what to do from there.
