While there are obvious indicators a marriage is headed for the trenches — infidelity and irreconcilable differences — there are other, less noticeable problems that can chip away at a relationship over the long run. Divorce lawyers hear it and see it all, oftentimes noticing a common thread between their clients. Here are the top signs that your marriage won’t work according to the pros.
1. Money deception
2. Silent Treatment
Everyone communicates differently, but how a person reacts to a situation that gets them upset, angry, or all-around frustrated is important. According to Evie Jeang, the founder and managing partner of Ideal Legal group, giving your partner the silent treatment is a tell-tale sign of the relationship’s poor communication. “This is essentially the kiss of death for couples because it leads to feelings of resentment. Being able to work through issues that arise paves the way for resolution,” says Jeang.
3. Keeping lots of secrets
