when to decide it is time to divorce?

I was raised in arab christian roman orthodoxian family and a muslim society. i had no choice but to marry in a church. arab eastern traditions are many to mention here but most important is divorce is not possible unless there is adultery or insanity. before, if possible, to find a way to get divorce, i want advices when to decide to get divorce? asking myself, do i have enough reasons? please advise.

Is it the social norm or is it the law?

if you take the religious aspect out, then divorce is merely a matter of deciding if you have any chance of being happy with this person in a situation where you are growing and respected...


if those are missing, it isn't much or a friendship let alone a marriage. don't let your culture or your church tell you what your heart and your mind are saying to you, i stayed 10 years too long in a dead marriage.

If you are married to someone you truly do not like, get a divorce or at least live separately.

You only have one life and if both of you just can not get along then why torture anymore.

Get divorced asap. If you are already asking these questions it is time to get out.

Is it the christian church's perspective you are worried about? Does the muslim society influence your decision at all? Do you know anyone that is divorced?

Dear guys, thanks for the comments, appreciated

but to tell you the truth, my wife "loves" me and "claims" she's happy..me? on the contrary, not at all, that's why i'm confused..i don't want to be harmful but it's my life and my happiness after all, isn't it?

muslim society doesn't have influence on my life but the traditions which is also accepted by arab christians.

but the church is strict in divorcing, only for adultery or insanity, which i can't claim the other part have one of them.

I think only you can really answer this question because only you know if there is any value left in the relationship. For me personally, when the love is gone, so is the marriage. Simple. I marry for love. Without it, there is nothing that I define as "marriage" left. Good luck to you.
