– Friedrich Nietzsche
If one partner suffers from depression, the other has no one left to rely on for support. The increasing emotional gap distances the partners. If you are suffering from depression, try talking to your partner; he/she will understand you and will try to help you fight it. If nothing seems to work even after a long time, one of the two might want to opt for divorce.
There is nothing to look forward to in the relationship. This means that the relationship isn’t growing and has become stagnant. After a time, the other partner will stop taking initiatives to renew this marriage and it may lead to divorce
However, in these circumstances, the wife goes into depression and the responsibility of the newborn is left to the father along with that of his job. The marriage is anyway going through a truckload of problems and now, due to these extra responsibilities, the husband’s professional work might also get affected.
When the depressed person distances himself/herself in the marriage, the other partner at times, starts believing that he/she isn’t worthy of that person. In such circumstances, a divorce can be thought of as the solution.
It’s very easy to find escape routes and to find the easy way out. However, the easy option isn’t always the right one. If this problem isn’t understood in time, intimacy of one partner with someone else might lead to divorce.
