There are relationships that can stand the test of time and there are those that do not. Some couples eventually realize that they are not meant for each other after all. The only recourse when this happens is to break the relationship off. Although difficult, it is something that some people need to do to be happier with their lives. Unfortunately, some people do not seem to know when that time comes. There are signs that they can watch out for. Here are some of them.
New approaches do not improve the relationship.
There comes a time when a relationship just will not work, no matter what approach couples make in order to improve things. It pays to do everything in your power to make the relationship work. Trying different approaches to solving problems is good. But if the underlying problem is not resolved no matter how much you or your partner changed, maybe it is time to move on.
You have grown too tired even to fight.
Relationships in trouble usually get into fighting and arguments often. Conflict has become a normal way of life. While some may try to overlook this issue to keep the relationship alive, there always comes a tipping point when all will go tumbling down. One of the signs is when both partners have grown too tired to even fight. The complacent attitude overtakes everything else when it comes to resolving issues. Fighting may even be a sign that both partners still care about the relationship. But when the couple does not even bother to fight anymore, then it is a big warning sign that the relationship may no longer work.
Your different views and opinions are always at the heart of each conflict.
It is important for couples to respect each other’s differences. But certain views and beliefs can sometimes put a strain to any relationship. But it is possible for couples to still be in a successful relationship despite some serious differences. All it takes is respect for each other. But if these differences becomes the main reasons for conflicts in the relationship, then they may not be a good match in the first place. If there is no longer respect or acceptance for each other’s faults, then it may be time to break off from the relationship and move on.
The spark just was not there right from the start.
A successful and long relationship is usually based on that special connection, that certain spark that comes between a couple even on just the first meeting. It is the feeling of being soul mates. If ever one time, your relationship is on the rocks, you may need to look back and try to find if there was that special feeling that started the relationship. But upon hindsight, if the relationship was based on the convenience of having a partner in life or if just to fill a void, then it might not be too deep or meaningful a reason for a relationship to thrive through the years. If the relationship started based on certain needs and wants and not on love, any relationship will be at risk of breaking up.
