How do I know that my marriage is unhealthy?

5 Answers

Sienna34 Answered:

Signs of an unhealthy marriage include the following: 1. One person seems to have all the power in the marriage. 2. Individual aspirations are being crushed by the other partner. 3. Conflicts have become nasty and unproductive. 4. Emotional and physical abuse have crept into the marriage. 5. Depression is evident in one or both partners. 6. Substance abuse has become a big component in the marriage.

ELLISRE Answered:

Psychologists have shown that a strong indicator of an unhealthy marriage is if there is something called a demand/withdraw cycle. If one person asks for or strongly demands something, and the other person withdraws without much response or commitment, they are very likely to be having other marital issues.

HOWARD Answered:

One of the clearest signs that your marriage is unhealthy is that there feels like there is distance between you and your spouse. Without clear communication, issues that are festering inside of each of you cannot be resolved and will only lead to more trouble and resentment down the road.

Lovemybabe Answered:

When there is conflict about everything, or if you bicker constantly, the marriage can probably use some work. If you are harboring resentment, that's also a sign that the marriage is struggling.

Leandarina Answered:

When you notice that you are in a bad mood being with your partner, that you are always critisizing each other and that you only bring out the worst in each other so that you avoid spending time with him/her.
