5. Bickering and fighting.
Are you fighting bitterly about things that surprise you? Things that normally would be “no big deal?” Or are the very normal disagreements that come up in relationships suddenly fertile ground for angry and abusive fights?
If so, consideration and thoughtfulness have disappeared from your relationship. If there is no desire to call a ceasefire then you’re at a dead end.
6. Continued infidelity.
If infidelity has become routine for one or both of you, or if there is infidelity that you can’t get over, it will be impossible to make your relationship work.
7. Your partner wants out.
If your partner says it’s over, it’s over.
Delineating, pondering, and acknowledging these 7 warning signs is much easier than ending a relationship. But it’s a start. Even when you know it is in your best interests, it is always difficult to acknowledge the end of a relationship. Just thinking that all that time, love, and investment has an expiration date is painful. But trust me on this—courageously facing the truth now will save even more heartache later. When a relationship feels over, let it be over.
Good luck to you.
