Unfortunately, close to half of all marriages end in divorce. As sad of a statistic as this is, it is even worse when an unhappy couple continues to reside together to try to make things work out. People may stay together to try to work things out for many reason which include but are not limited to: for the benefit of the kids, believing that things will get better, believing that one spouse will stop being violent or drinking or abusing drugs.

Although it is admirable to try to save your marriage, sometimes that cannot happen. If that is the case with your marriage, there is no reason to continue to live in pain and unhappiness.
