About Lesson

There is an old saying that goes, “If you’re in a good marriage, you know it, and if you’re in a bad marriage, you also know it.” With that said, how exactly are you supposed to know what constitutes a good or a bad marriage?

What is the definition of a “bad marriage?”

A “bad marriage” refers to a marital relationship characterized by significant problems, dissatisfaction, and an overall lack of fulfillment for one or both partners. It typically involves persistent negative emotions, communication difficulties, frequent conflicts, and a lack of intimacy or emotional connection. 

A bad marriage may also involve abuse, infidelity, substance abuse, or other harmful behaviors that contribute to an unhealthy and toxic environment. 

Ultimately, a bad marriage is one in which the partners experience ongoing distress, unhappiness, and a sense of dissatisfaction with the relationship, leading to a diminished quality of life for both individuals involved. It can make you feel that divorce is better than an unhappy marriage.
