It’s very true: Every marriage has it ups and downs.
But not all downs are part of the “norm”. Repeated periods of unhappiness, dissatisfaction, anger, frustration, hurt and disappointment, are unmistakable signs of a marriage in serious trouble.
If you are worried that your husband is looking for a way out, you need to be aware of some the signs that he is about to leave. If you’ll be aware, you could take steps to save your marriage – Before it’s too late.
Can Your Husband Leave You “Out of the Blue”?
A marriage breakdown is always a process. If a woman feels that her husband left her “out of the blue”, she has probably closed her eyes to early warning signs, or just thought that things will work out by themselves.
Unfortunately, they never do.
10 Signs Your Husband is About to Leave You
Here are 10 unmistakable signs that your husband may leave you in the near future (unless of course you decide to do something about it):
1. He Won’t Commit to Life-Time Decisions
If your husband is reluctant to upgrading your home, having a child (or another child), moving, and making large or lasting purchases (even though you know you can afford it financially) this is a big warning sign.
He may be reluctant to make major or long term joint decisions because he just isn’t sure if he’s going to be married to you for that much longer.
But even men who are fully committed to their marriage can be hesitant in making big decisions. So this should only be a warning sign if combined with general ambivalence about your marriage, distance, unhappiness and more signs like the ones you’ll see below.
2. He Shows Signs of an Emotional Affair
If your husband is having an emotional affair, it’s a bigger warning sign that if he “just” cheated once with a stranger.
If he has found another woman that he can be intimate with (not necessarily sexually) and who gives him the things (in his mind) that are lacking in your marriage – Trouble is knocking on your marital door.
If on top of this he said that he loves you but not in love with you, chances are he is planning to leave you.
Here’s how to find out if your husband is having an emotional affair (and what to do about it).
3. It Seems You Can’t Do Anything Right
Be it the style of your hair or the way you walk, if your husband suddenly finds fault with everything you do, he is probably trying to push you away.
If no matter how hard you try, nothing you do is right and he blames you for everything wrong in his life, he is trying to justify (to himself) that leaving you is the right thing to do for him.
You can find out what’s really bothering him by learning how to communicate with him and tear down the huge wall he has put up between the two of you.
Here’s how to communicate with your husband (the right way) and get the truth out of him – Today.
4. He is a Serial Cheater
Some men are just not cut out for monogamy and marriage, even if they really want to have a good one.
Serial cheaters do not only cheat, they tend to put the blame on their and will claim that you are paranoid, controlling and too jealous.
Unfortunately, a serial cheater is more than likely to leave his marriage, at some point (if they’re not kicked out first).
Here’s how to know if your husband is a serial cheater, and what to do about it.
5. He is Completely Uncaring About Your Emotions
If your husband seems to completely not care about your emotions (for a long period of time), it’s a big sign that your husband is about to leave you.
For example, if he makes comments about hot girls. If he makes fun of you and humiliates you in front of friends and family.
If he inconsiderate on purpose, he is sending you a clear message. He doesn’t care anymore.
6. He Refuses to Solve Marital Problems
If your husband is well aware that your marriage is in trouble, yet refuses to get help or even discuss it – He may have mentally checked out of your marriage.
If you repeatedly bring up an issue, ask for help and make it clear that your marriage is in trouble and he refuses to even discuss it, it’s an unmistakable sign that he may be planning to end your marriage.
But, I do believe that even in this case, it doesn’t mean that all hope is lost.
Here’s how to save your marriage alone (when you’re the only one trying).
7. You Lead Separate Lives
If your husband is gradually fading out from your life – It’s a sign not to be over looked.
If he prefers to hang out with his friends, his family or at work and he finds no time to just be with you – He may be a step out the door already.
8. He is Not Interested in Sex
If your husband has no interest in having sex, you should know that it’s one of the biggest warning signs of an ending marriage.
Forget about excuses, like fatigue, work stress etc. Men that are not interested in sex and refuse it even when offered to them – Are probably getting it somewhere else.
Sometimes men can have low sex drive due to a physical problem, but if that’s ruled out than something is definitely up.
Here are some major signs that your husband is cheating (and how to stop it).
9. He is Moving Money Around
If your husband starts behaving differently with your money, you may have a cause for alarm.
If he opens another account (more so if it’s secretly!), moves money from a joint account to a personal one or anything else out of the ordinary, he may be planning for the day he leaves you.
Always be aware of your financial situation and know where all your accounts are and how to access them.
10. He Threatens to Leave You
When couples fight, they say the most awful things. It’s a human weakness. We say things that we regret later.7
But if your husband has threatened to leave you more than once, and over the tiniest things, he may mean exactly what he says – He wants to leave you.
Even if he just jokes about it, especially around friends, do not ignore this warning sign.
Whatever you do, the main thing is that you do.
Do something about these warning signs to save your marriage before it’s too late.
