Many marriages go through rocky patches once the honeymoon is over. Whether it’s the stress of work, the kids, family relationships, friendships, finances, or even intimacy, the ebbs and flows of marriage can sometimes be difficult to walk together. When you don’t feel like yourself, it can make it even more challenging to communicate what’s wrong. Why do I feel this way? Is it my hormones or is our marriage really in trouble?
According to one AARP study, over sixty percent of divorces are initiated by women between the ages of 40 and 60. (AARP) While infidelity, domestic abuse, and substance abuse were cited as the top three reasons women involved in the study initiated divorce, a breakdown in communication is a known contributor for both genders. Changes in how we feel because of our hormone shifts can make us feel like we’re the opposite of what our husbands married!
Thankfully, how we feel about ourselves through the changing years doesn’t necessarily mean our marriages are doomed. It does mean we may need to consider that growing old together means better understanding what our bodies and minds are telling us. If our hormones are unbalanced, it will affect how we communicate and respond to those closest to us, especially our spouses.
