Divorce can happen for many reasons in Arizona, but people often focus on only the main ones: money and infidelity. However, things you may never expect can also drive a marriage to the breaking point. For example, simple narcissism can often lead to a divorce.
The problem is in the way that the narcissistic spouse treats his or her partner. At the beginning of the relationship, that person may just come off as confident or alluring. He or she will have a desire to be liked and desired, so the person may try very hard to impress his or her partner. This all makes the relationship feel very good while the two are dating.
After marriage, though, the person often becomes more self-involved and focused on only what he or she wants. Things change so that the focus is no longer on the couple. Part of the reason for this, of course, is that person’s true character, but another part of it can be that he or she feels like the marriage is a final end point, so the need to come off as kind and impressive is no longer there.
Needless to say, this type of shift can cause the other spouse to feel like he or she doesn’t know who the person he or she married. As the two drift apart, even if the rest of the relationship is fine, they may discover that they just do not enjoy being together anymore.
The reasons for a divorce can come into play when figuring out all of the details, so, if you are thinking of leaving your partner, be sure that you know what options you have.
