Why do some people marry for the wrong reasons?

On Behalf of | Nov 19, 2020 | Divorce, Family Law |

Getting married can seem like the happiest day of your life. While it might seem like a great idea at the time, a lot of people in Illinois get married for the wrong reasons. Whether you’re on your second marriage or your fourth, your marriage might be destined for divorce if you’re still dealing with unresolved issues.

While they don’t always admit it to themselves, many people get remarried for the wrong reasons. In some cases, they are dealing with a bad breakup and want to lose themselves in a new relationship. They convince themselves that everything is fine and even flaunt their new marriage in front of their former spouse. Unfortunately, they can’t keep up the act forever, and if they’re not truly happy, the marriage could end in divorce.

Other people get remarried because they’re afraid of being alone. They’ve never lived by themselves or stayed single for more than a few weeks. They eagerly jump into new relationships so that they can distract themselves from their problems. While this might seem appealing at first, these people tend to be needy and clingy and end up driving their partners away.

Others get married because they’re not seeing their partners clearly. They’re so infatuated with the other person that they magnify all their good traits and ignore the red flags in their relationship. When they get married, they see who their partner really is for the first time, and it’s not always pretty.

Whether you’re thinking about divorce or already taking the first steps, hiring an attorney might be one of the best things you can do for yourself. An attorney may help you with a wide range of issues, including alimony, child support, asset valuation and more.
