Being in my mid-twenties, I know a handful of people my age who are divorced. The writers of Bustle made a list of surprising things that could be increasing your own odds of divorce, and you may not even realize it!

  • Failing to practice self-care because once you lose your sense of self, you may slowly being resenting your partner and your marriage. Caring for yourself, and embracing what makes you you are some of the best things you can do.
  • Not fighting which may seem funny, but fighting usually means that you care, both about what you're fighting about and who you're fighting with. Once you stop fighting, it usually means that you've given up.
  • Always putting your children first which you would think would be a good thing, but you two need to make time for you two as a couple. Forgetting about the commitment you made to your partner could spell disaster for your relationship.

Couples tend to have high expectations about what they will get out of a marriage, but communication will always help in your marriage, as well as in other aspects of your life.
