10 Things That Can Break Your Relationship
The sad truth about most relationships is that they start off on a beautiful romantic note but have a terrible end. Only a few can survive the test of time and can keep their relationship devoid of the following ten things that would otherwise spell disaster for a couple.
1. Constant criticism
After the romantic mush is over in the first few months of the relationship, many couples typically start showing their true colors. They can’t adjust with each other, start needing their own space and don’t like each other’s friends. All this leads to constant criticism for each other, eventually leading to a breakup.
2. Lying and breaking trust
A small white lie or a big deliberate lie, whatever the scale, one lie has the power to shatter your relationship. You may have been unlucky and never meant to lie on purpose, but once your partner’s trust in you is broken, it is very difficult to bring it back.
Everyone interprets the word cheating in a different way. For some, flirting with colleagues may be called cheating and for some going out with a workmate for a coffee without informing their partner can also mean cheating. Understand how sensitive your partner is about this issue and then act accordingly.
For whatever reason if you even have any doubts or suspicion on your partner, don’t become a snoop dog and watch them on the sly. If they find out, it could spell disaster for you. Confront them with your feelings about how they have been acting strange lately, but don’t put a sleuth on them.
5. Obsessive jealousy
Just like some red wine is good for the heart as some doctors say, some amount of possessiveness and jealousy is good too. But there is a fine line between healthy possessiveness and obsession. If you find yourself constantly questioning your partner about where they have been, who they have gone out with and such other questions, you will see that your partner will slowly drift away from you.
