I personally believe that most people don't know when it's time to end a relationship. I personally believe that most marriages that end in divorce probably shouldn't be. About 66% of divorces aren't necessarily warranted - warranted meaning that in the end it is not necessarily going to pay off for you financially, emotionally, relationally. And the reason this happens is that most people divorcing don't end up fixing their problem. They just altered their problem from one person to another.
We often see cycles in relationships. Some are in relationships where they can't communicate and they aren't getting their needs met. Because they can't talk and their needs are not getting met, they start looking around at greener pastures. They start looking for other relationships, start connecting to others, and start thinking of other ways to get out of the relationship.
When this happens, I generally see that they don't deal with the issues in the relationship. I don't think that you should ever divorce without dealing with your issues. Statically, there is a 60 to 65 percent chance your next marriage is going to end in divorce as well. And up to 80 or 85 percent chance your third marriage will if you don't deal with your issues and learn how to overcome them effectively.
Don't become more of the problem! Learn the skills you need to either turn your current relationship into a healthy one or if you need to end the relationship, learn what when wrong and how to improve for the next relationship.
