Couples go through divorces for different reasons. But the common one you may have heard many times, from the people around you to celebrities, is irreconcilable differences. So, what are they? And how do they develop?
Here is what you need to know when filing for a divorce for this reason.
Irreconcilable differences make a marriage unsustainable
Married people are bound to differ on certain issues. These are two parties that may have grown up with different values and belief systems. So, they will have differences, which they can solve and stay married.
However, irreconcilable differences are disagreements that get to uncontrollable levels that a couple can no longer sustain a marriage. A couple may go to therapy and get all the help needed but may still find it challenging to stay together.
Most irreconcilable differences are gradual, but others can happen once and lead to a divorce, for example, when a spouse fails to disclose crucial information before the marriage, and the other finds out afterward or when one gets violent. Gradual differences may stem from issues, including finances, infidelity, communication and substance abuse.
