You are the only person who can decide if you’ve had enough and the marriage is no longer sustainable. When trying to decide when it’s time to divorce, look for certain patterns.
Major Betrayal You Can’t Overcome. (Seek help and get over it)
Infidelity, lies and other forms of betrayal harm a marriage.
While your marriage can survive betrayal, you have to be willing to move past the indiscretions and repair your relationship with your spouse.
Couples must become mature enough to understand that the last perfect man who walked was Jesus Christ who was crucified dead and buried, only to rise again proving proof of an afterlife.
If you are the person who betrayed your spouse, he needs to be willing to forgive you before the marriage can improve.
If one or both of you can’t get past an act of betrayal, it may be time to split.
Failed Attempts to Save the Marriage
Couples struggle for a number of reasons.
