Five Warning Signs That You Should End a Relationship

When it comes to relationships, ending things sooner rather than later can save a lot of heartache down the line, but this is only if there is something that you should be ending the relationship for. Here are five red flags that could mean the relationship is on its way out.

1. If your views on family greatly differ, it may be time to end things. If you would rather spend Sundays with the family having dinner and spending the day together while he would rather watch football alone in his den, this is something that is not likely to change. If he wants a big family with lots of kids but you do not, that is something that should be considered before making things serious.

2. One big red flag is that your partner has been unfaithful previously. There is a phrase, “once a cheater always a cheater” and this usually rings true. Get out before you are cheated on.

3. Risky business is not something to look past. If your partner is doing something that could be harmful or dangerous, perhaps think about moving on instead of moving forward. They will have to grow up at some point but you shouldn’t have to be the one to deal with it.

4. How does your partner handle stressful situations? Does he take them with a grain of salt and calmly or does he blow up and lose his temper? If he tends to blow things out of proportion often, you should probably end the relationship before you end up with months of fights spinning out of control.

5. If your family and your friends dislike your partner, there is probably a good reason why. They care about you and want to see you happy, so take what they are telling you to heart. If they don’t like him, listen to their reasoning.

    The biggest problem with marriage is people don't love themselve it a problem in most relationship here in america most people start out wrong looking for love outside themselve until people learn to love themselve they will always have issues with relationships people problems with other people that they bring in their lives are a lack of self love.

    Something to add here are recognizing the signs of an unhealthy emotional person. If a man is always referring to women as b*tches, h*es or pigeons, ducks, chickenheads (basically degrading) then it's a sure sign that you'd be referred to like that – not only when you are gone but eventually to your face…also, if a person blatantly TELLS you about their sexual fetishes that you aren't into – ya need to dip! There is no changing a peron! One must change themselves! PERIOD!

I agree but this is not always right remember these are warning signs not fact remember the one who lived a life where something that was broken was fixed remember that toy you had that was broken you fixed it put it up and kept if safe so you could keep it for ever you didn't abandon that toy so why is a relationship something that has to be thrown away verses put on a self for safe keeping lady and gentlemen this is I n the words of a man who love's the one he with to death not matter what the situation is we're biutl in remember he said let Mann be made in our images ladies and gentlemen remember god says our image so men and women you need to understand whether its and inny or outty its up to you to be more like god and love that one you were blessed with unconditionally.

    Once a cheater, always a cheater is not a hard and fast rule.
    True, some people live a lifestyle of and are serial cheaters. If that’s
    the case, I’d say run; and run fast. But there are those among
    us (male and female) who have made a huge mistake in having
    an affair. These individuals often refer to the action as the most
    regrettable mistake of their life. Not taking a chance on a relationship
    with someone like this, could result in missing out on, possibly,
    the love of your life. And remember, when someone is cheated
    on, we cannot always assume that they are an innocent
    victim.
