Being unfriendly with your partner’s friends and family.

Money issues are one of the causes of failed relationships. Without proper planning, money problems can be the end of a relationship.

Maintaining a healthy relationship between two people is hard enough but adding cheating to it is definitely the icing on the cake that can instantly kill a relationship. Infidelity is the number one relationship destroyer and some relationships won’t be able to go past this. The feeling of being betrayed is not easy to handle, and so the betrayed spouse or partner often leave the relationship. There are couples who survived infidelity and made the relationship work again, but if you want a long-lasting relationship, it is best not to commit infidelity in the first place.
Disgusting habits and behaviors
Love is not an excuse to put up with disgusting habits and behaviors and although loving somebody includes being tolerant of all his or her flaws, let’s face it, there are habits that can become frustrating over time and can drive your partner to wake up one day and simply take a walk. Simple things like not making the bed, covering the toothpaste, leaving soiled laundry everywhere or dirty socks and shoes around the house can aggravate situations if the relationship is not going well and eventually put an end to it. Behaviors like fighting in public, Nagging, humiliating your partner, unreasonable jealousy, cursing when arguing, keeping grudges, hitting your partner or spouse when you are angry, evading discussions about the issues in your relationship, lying or being dishonest are some of the unhealthy behaviors that can damage a relationship leading to breakups or divorce. Being in a relationship should help couples to become a better version of them, not the opposite.
The excitement in a relationship could die when you become too complacent or comfortable with each other, and everything becomes more of a routine than an act of love. The fire slowly extinguishes, and You become more like friends or siblings than lovers. Stop the routine and spice up your relationship, create new and exciting memories through vacations or regular dates. Rediscover what made you two fall in love and start all over to fall in love again.
Lack of intimacy and sex.
Couples end up too busy or stressed for sex or intimacy because of life’s challenges which is not good in a relationship. Couples need to connect emotionally, intimately and physically and this is done through sex. Couples tend to have less sex through the years. This should be prevented from happening. When couples cease having sex, they tend to get detached and disconnected from each other, and they become vulnerable to infidelity. It is best for couples to sustain an active sex life to keep the intimacy and relationship exciting and alive.
