5 Reasons Why People Stay In Unhappy Marriages

Staying in an unhappy marriage might seem something out of the ordinary for some people. But in fact, these things do happen. People have their own reasons why they stay in an unhappy marriage.

Here are the most common 5 reasons why people stay in an unhappy marriage:

 

    • For Children Sake - kids are always the main reason why people stay together. Parents think that their divorce might affect their children in unimaginable ways. And they are most of the times, right. Divorce can damage children, ruin their childhood, dreams and hopes. But only because you two have children, it is necessarily to stay together. The bad words and awful behavior can affect children worse than a divorce can.

 

    • Social Shame - some people simply can't detach themselves from others. They listen to what people say and they fear that others will gossip about their divorce. These are those people who simply prefer to stay in an unhappy marriage rather than having to deal with other people's words. Unfortunately, until they learn how to simply not care about others have to say, they will remain unhappy.

 

    • Lifestyle or Habit - some people have grown quite fond of their lifestyle or their habits. And despite how hard or awful the presence of their partner becomes, they prefer to stay in an unhappy marriage, but take advantage of the lifestyle they have now. At the same time, some people do not get a divorce because they are accustomed with the unhappiness. It might not make any sense to most of you, but yes, some people need to feel unhappy, they need to complain and not do anything about their current situation. Usually these people have given up on trying to work things out, but at the same time, they do not want to divorce because they are used to feeling this way.

 

    • Fear of Losing Things - some people stay in unhappy marriages because they fear that once they divorce, they will lose all the precious things they have. In a marriage people build stuff together and they also buy stuff together. Once you want to get a divorce, these things will go half and half. At the same time, people might fear losing their common friends to the other side. In a divorce you can't predict which friends will take your side and which won't. So people simply do not want to find out.

 

  • Fear of Being Alone - once you have been with someone for a few years, you pretty much forgot how to be on your own. You did all the things with the other person that doing things on your own now is not something you know how to do. So instead of getting a divorce, most people simply stay in an unhappy marriage because they fear the idea of being alone.

 

Staying in an unhappy marriage is not going to solve your problems. Only you and your partner can decide whether to work things out or to give up.
