Relationships are work. Period. The majority of people involved in them want the best for themselves and their partner. Being compatible with someone you enjoy spending time with can be an amazing feeling but as can be expected, spending so much time together with one person will ultimately lead to disagreements about something at one point or another. It’s healthy for couples to argue every once and a while but constant screaming matches about any and everything is not a good sign and could lead to a failed relationship. Want to know why some relationships don’t stand the test of time? Here are a few of the top reasons.
- Poor Communication– Many couples have problems with communication. You and your partner have to be open and honest about all of the issues that come up in your relationship.
- Infidelity– The grass looks greener on the other side, but it is usually withered. In addition, if your mate finds out about your infidelity, they may just get back at you by sleeping with someone else. How can a relationship grow when so much mistrust dwells inside of both of you? You and your partner may no longer trust the other to be the soul mate you’d hoped to spend the rest of your lives with, and that is the beginning of many problems to come.
- Unemployment– Unemployment is so unattractive. Brothers: you have to get a job, or at least be actively searching for one in order to get a woman who’ll respect you and consider you a man who can take care of a family in the future.
