How To Predict Your Own Divorce In 2023

Women, for better or worse, are the caretakers of relationship. Men are usually content with a relationship even when it’s broken, which is why women have to bring issues up.

Some of the highlights:

Women bring up 80% of relationship issues.

The  ones who shut down and refuse to talk about these issues? 85% of them are men.

69% of  conflict in relationships is unresolvable, perpetual problems.

And the four predictors of divorce are things I’m sure you are familiar with:

  • Criticism (sharing a complaint while putting the blame on your partner)
  • Contempt (negative thoughts about your partner coming from a position of superiority)
  • Defensiveness (self-protecting either in the form of victimizing yourself or righteous indignation)
  • Stonewalling (emotionally withdrawing from your partner.)

I think this  confirms things we already know.

Women, for better or worse, are the caretakers of relationship. Men are usually content with a relationship even when it’s broken, which is why women have to bring issues  up.  When women bring things up, men tend to shut down or pull away.

This means that they are often poor communicators, but it also may mean that women have too many complaints, expect too much of men, and don’t know how to deliver their feedback in a way that men can listen.

And if you look at your relationship and see that you are the person who is critical  and contemptful,  you’d a) better check your attitude and b) choose a different partner who doesn’t make you so critical and contemptful.

Your thoughts, below, are appreciated.
