It is not always obvious that you may be in an unhappy and toxic relationship/marriage. However, if you take the time to step back and look closely, you will see that there are behaviors by your partner/spouse that are not the behaviors of someone who truly loves you.
Unfortunately, in our education for life, either by our parents, family or the school system, no one really prepares us and tells us how a successful relationship, let alone a marriage, should work. Instead, we are left to go through relationships one by one and hopefully learn by experience.
This article discusses five signs of a toxic relationship. Again, contempt is at the top of the list, fighting, secrets, distance and silence.
This is why the alternative processes of Mediation and Collaborative are vital. Did you know that Mediation is now often used to help couples also stay together?
