Divorce questionnaire helps spouse decide best course

A marriage is always in a state of flux, even in the best of times. Changes and growth on the part of either partner necessitates a shifting within the partnership. Outside challenges such as a new child, loss of a job or other stressors can also change the marital dynamic. Many couples in Colorado will consider divorce at various points throughout the relationship as they reevaluate their level of satisfaction. However, many who think about ending their marriage would be better served to consider therapy, either as a couple or individually.

A recently published questionnaire may help spouses decide whether to pursue a path toward therapy or divorce. Questions concern the frequency and regularity of sex with one's partner, as well as the quality of those sexual interactions. One question asks the participant whether he or she can remember why they married their spouse in the first place.

Some questions focus on serious issues that can portend the end of a marriage, such as whether a spouse has an addiction to drugs, alcohol or any other form of vice. Yet another asks if one spouse holds suspicions of infidelity on the part of the other. The last question asks whether the couple spends more time fighting than laughing.

While the decision to divorce is certainly worthy of more contemplation than a simple quiz can provide, this tool can help a spouse identify which issues are of most concern in their marriage, which can be helpful if he or she decides to enter into therapy. There are some marriages in which conditions are present that prevent the relationship from moving forward, and those partners generally proceed straight to their respective divorce attorneys. However, many partners in Colorado and elsewhere may find that there is a path back to happiness if both spouses are willing to make that a priority.
