The 4 big issues that may lead to divorce in Connecticut

Marriage takes open and honest communication. There are some issues that may take a marriage into territory from which there is no returning. These four big issues, if not rectified, may escalate to the point of causing a Connecticut couple to divorce. They're known as the four As: adultery, abuse, agendas and addiction.

For obvious reasons, adultery is taboo in a marital union. For most married people, it is considered morally reprehensible and the major reason for a marriage falling apart. Infidelity is often the icing on the cake to other issues going on in the marriage that have not been dealt with. Abuse is also the death of many marriages. Emotional and physical abuse can leave a partner feeling isolated and scared and usually culminates in a marriage breakdown if it is ongoing.

Addictions can rear their ugly heads in relationships, causing them to erode. These addictions could involve alcohol, drugs, gambling, and to a lesser extent, things like food and work. But, when partners make a concerted effort to work together to help an individual overcome an addiction, a marriage may be better for it. As for agendas -- partners would do well to adapt to how each changes over the years and learn to support each other as they grow individually and within the relationship. Couples who are on completely different pages may end up closing the book permanently. 

There are times that no matter what a couple does they just can't seem to continue as a couple. A Connecticut divorce attorney may be able to help his or her client to negotiate a divorce settlement when it comes to the marital estate. If the process doesn't involve litigation, it may be less costly and quicker than having to battle it out in court.

  • Hi Yuliana and Attorney Prince, Thank you so much for taking time out of your busy day to meet with me. I really appreciated how compassionate you were while listening to my situation, even through my tears. Thank you so much for sharing such valuable information with me. I left feeling very hopeful that when the dust settles, I’ll be ok.
  • Wendy helped guide us through a very difficult and emotional process and was really able to provide an even and fair account for both parties. It's quite evident in her expertise in this area but the way she was able to make you feel safe and secure in a very insecure time goes far beyond her legal prowess. If the two parties are really willing to cooperate and collaborate, she's there to help gain the best possible solution for all involved, especially if there are children.
  • Regardless of how committed one is to the fact that divorce may be imminent and necessary, it is truly one of the most emotional and stressful situations one can experience. It can also be daunting. Wendy has a remarkable ability to cut through the noise and help you focus on the big picture while drilling down on what is most pertinent to your particular situation., they are a formidable team who work collectively with your best interests in mind.
