Does your spouse want a divorce? Look for financial clues

It goes without saying that most people know when things aren't right in their marriage. Even so, you may overlook some signs that divorce is closing in on you.

It's only natural to focus on your personal relationship with your spouse, such as how you are getting along and how you deal with any arguments that come to light.

However, there are other things to look at if you have reason to believe your spouse wants a divorce. One of the best places to start is your finances.

Here are some financial clues that could point toward your spouse asking for a divorce in the near future:

  • He or she is always looking to argue about money, as opposed to finding a solution that works
  • Your spouse is hiding money from you, such as in an individual bank account
  • Large cash withdrawals have become all too common
  • Your spouse doesn't want to talk about why money is missing
  • Your spouse puts you on a budget
  • Your spouse is no longer receiving mail at home
  • He or she reduces contributions to retirement and savings accounts

There are many reasons why someone may do one or more of these things, and they don't all have to do with divorce. However, if you notice one or more of these situations, you need to think about what could be going on.

If you soon realize that divorce is the only answer to your problems, learn more about the process and the steps you can take along the way to protect your rights across the board.
