Very few relationships are able to stand the test of time. While others start out perfectly, somewhere along the way the couple starts to drift apart even before they know what is happening.
Sex is an important aspect of love and romance. If you are not having enough of it or you are not trying hard enough to keep the sexual excitement on a high, you will become bored with your relationship in a short time. You might think that you are okay without sex but the truth is, both of you are changing into siblings instead of a romantic couple.
Money and relationships is a delicate combination. Disagreement over finances is one of the major causes of divorce and breakups. One partner might spend more than the other which in turn will lead to sabotage of the relationship. The economy has not done anything to help relieve the stress whereby one can easily lose their job or have to work on low paying jobs. Most of these money related issues can be solved if the cause is identified and promptly addressed. Often times, the cause of such problems in a relationship is a specific behavior or an attitude which can be changed if the couple is willing.
Lack of time for each other leads to breakups. People work hard these days and do not have time to spend with their loved ones. In the beginning, both of you might miss each other but as months pass, you will start to learn how to live without your loved one. Before either of you realize it, you will be able to lead your own lives without the other person being part of it. When neither of you will need the other person, it is clear that the both of you are going to drift apart.
For a relationship to be successful, both partners need to take an interest in pleasing each other and making the other person happy. When you do not take the initiate to do this, you will start taking each other for granted and the relationship is going to stagnate. Go on holiday, plan interesting and crazy dates, tease each other and have a lot of fun. Most essentially, you need to try and create memories every day. This is the easiest way to take an initiative and show the other person just how much they mean to you.
With the above information, you are now aware of the things that destroy relationships and you will be able to avoid them.
