When Ann Morgan James’ husband asked her for a divorce just two months shy of their 18th wedding anniversary, she was blindsided. The California author says she was fully aware the couple was having trouble, but believed they could make the relationship work. Her husband, apparently, did not. He asked her for a divorce and now the couple shares legal custody of their 14-year-old son.

Most of us are shocked to hear divorce news when it concerns a couple who spent more than a decade together. We wonder how they could have invested so much time into their relationship, only to declare it no longer works. Danielle Horwich, a licensed clinical social worker in Los Angeles, says while there are no easy answers, there may be some obvious reasons behind the demise of a long and (what appeared to be) happy marriage.
