How does one know if their marriage is contributing to their depression?

Thanks for bringing your question to JustAnswer.

 

To give you the best possible answer, I need a bit more information.

 

Are you being treated with antidepressants?

Are you in therapy?

 

What is it about your marriage that makes you think it might be contributing to your depression?

Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm pleased to try to help you today.

I would have to say that if you feel your marriage makes you sad and unhappy, then it is likely contributing to your depression. That doesn't necessarily mean that your marriage isn't good - just that there are some patterns of behavior (likely on both parts) that are causing you to not view it very positively at times. If you aren't already doing so, I would encourage you to talk with your Dr. about medication, and perhaps a therapist about what is happening in your marriage and how you might be able to change things so that you feel better.

Best wishes, and please let me know if I can answer any further questions. Tamara
