Personality traits and the chances of divorce

According to relationship experts, divorce attorneys and psychologists, people who have certain personality traits have a higher likelihood of getting divorced. Texas residents should learn what these traits are, determine if they have them and hold themselves responsible for their actions.

Selfishness is a trait that everyone has in some degree. However, issues with selfishness arise when it becomes a habitual behavior that makes the other person in the relationship feel inadequate. When the selfishness of one partner begins to harm the other person, the marriage can quickly devolve.

Having disagreements is a healthy aspect of a marriage as it allows both parties to air out their grievances, improve the manner in which they communicate with one another and address their issues until they are resolved. However, if one or both parties avoid arguments in their relationship, it results in issues being unresolved. This can cause the marriage to stall and contribute to the unhappiness of both spouses.

Having a fragile ego is another type of personality that can contribute to the end of a marriage. People who have deep-seated insecurities may attempt to resolve their insecurities outside of the marriage. For example, their insecurities can result in emotional or physical infidelity.

It may not be surprising to many people that the likelihood of divorce among people who are narcissistic is extremely high. It is not unusual for narcissists to play the victim in situations in which there is some form of conflict or if something goes wrong.

Individuals seeking a divorce may speak with a divorce attorney about their legal options. The attorney may evaluate the factors surrounding the ending of the marriage and have clients specify their desired divorce settlement terms. Litigation and negotiation tactics might be used to resolve issues regarding alimony and property division.
