7 Reasons Women Leave Men

Date:

Wondering why women leave men they once loved?

The marriage failed. You didn’t. Before you serve your soon to be ex-spouse with divorce papers; which could create a long legal battle, why not try and see if collaborative divorce might be a better option?. Collaborative divorce may help you and your spouse avoid a myriad of issues, including the stress that divorce litigation can cause.

Here you will discover some of the most common reasons women leave men and what you can do now to improve your current or future relationship.

  1. Too Much Responsibility

Both spouses share the responsibility to make a relationship work. A healthy relationship requires communication, effort, and attention. If a woman feels like she is carrying most of the weight of the relationship, she will eventually become frustrated. If this frustration isn’t resolved and continues to grow, she might eventually ask, ‘why even bother?’

  1. She Feels Taken for Granted

No one wants to be taken for granted. If a woman feels like her partner doesn’t appreciate all she does for him, she may stop putting in the effort altogether. Or worse, she may decide to look for someone who will appreciate her more.

  1. Repetitive Arguments

If you continually argue with your spouse about the same topics, this can cause strain on your relationship. Resolving these conflicts requires compromise on both sides. If you are unwilling to compromise, she may stop arguing – not because the issue is resolved, but because she is “done.” HuffPost says, “When their needs continue to go unmet, mutual resentment grows ― a factor that is lethal to a relationship”.

  1. No Quality Time

Relationships need strong communication, love, effort, and time to grow. Your relationship will slowly start to die if you aren’t spending time together and communicating often about those things most important to each of you.

  1. Comparing Her to Other Women

Some women are secure enough that they aren’t affected by their partner mentioning or paying attention to other women. Other women internalize the comparison, causing them to feel inadequate. Making comparisons between your partner and another woman, maybe an ex-partner for instance, could damage her self-esteem or maybe think she’s not good enough.

  1. Emotional Connection is Fading

If she no longer feels an emotional connection with you, she may start looking for that connection somewhere else. Huff Post states, “When we choose to be open to learning about loving ourselves and our partner, our heart opens — which is what enables us to connect. We cannot connect with a closed heart. Choosing the intent to learn when with your partner is vital for connection.

  1. Abuse or Neglect

Emotional, physical and verbal abuse is responsible for as much as 34% of all divorces. Even if one spouse hasn’t put their hands on the other, behavior such as name-calling and screaming can be perceived as emotional abuse and the scars from being on the receiving end can last a lifetime. In some cases, one spouse commits domestic violence against the other; however, there are some situations where both spouses are physically or emotionally abusive to each other.

Marriage Builders says, “One reason for divorce is “neglect” itself. These include both emotional abandonment and physical abandonment. Husbands that work away from the home, sometimes leaving their wives alone for weeks at a time, fall into this category”.
