Psychologist John Gottman, who is called a man who can predict divorce with 90% accuracy, has named a sign that indicates that a relationship is over or on the verge of collapse, according to Your Tango.

The main harbinger of divorce

When contempt arises in a marriage, feelings of love between spouses diminish, as per the psychologist. Conflict arises when one partner perceives themselves as superior to the other.

Disrespect is displayed through rudeness, ridicule, and sarcasm. Engaging in hurtful joking, mimicking your spouse's actions, rolling your eyes, and openly criticizing them destroys the relationship.

"When contempt begins to overwhelm your relationship you tend to forget entirely your partner’s positive qualities, at least while you’re feeling upset. You can’t remember a single positive quality or act. This immediate decay of admiration is an important reason why contempt ought to be banned from marital interactions," the psychologist wrote in his book.

Neglect can destroy a marriage and erode the bond between partners. To prevent this, a psychologist advises paying attention to both your partner's behavior and your own actions. When toxic jokes arise or one partner loses respect for the other, it's essential to pause and determine if the marriage can be saved and if both partners are willing to do so.
