A new study done by scientists at Harvard University, Brown University and UC San Diego finds that divorce is a contagion that can spread through social groups like a virus, weakening the marriages closest to it.
In fact, the breakup of a close friend’s marriage can increase the likelihood of your own marriage ending by a whopping 75 percent! Some couples exist in a relationship where co-dependency has developed, which tends to be based largely on insecurities and fears rather than pure love and confidence.
A relationship like that can be emotionally draining. Though many go on this way for a lifetime, others realize they are in a failed relationship and stay unfulfilled. In many cases they want to move on, but just don’t know where to start. As humans beings we fear the unknown and worry about the future.
For a woman who is in a relationship with children, she may wonder how she can make it as a single parent, and this may keep her longer in a failed relationship. It can be difficult to admit that you and your partner are not compatible or that you have been unsuccessful with making the relationship work.
Your partner may not want to acknowledge that the relationship is over, and this can be painful. If you are considering leaving your relationship, perhaps it is time to minimize the stressors by speaking with me to explore whether your rocky relationship can be saved or not.
