Relationships come in all different forms, and there’s no ‘one size fits all’ formula when it comes to our significant others.
Every romance has its ups and downs that couples have to learn to navigate through if they want any chance of surviving.
And while we all have our unique deal breakers that are based on personal experience and preferences, there are some situations none of us should put up with in relationships, no matter what. If any of these are happening to you, it’s likely time to get out now.
Here’s a list of them below:
You aren’t a hypochondriac just because you feel bad, but don’t pretend you’re immortal. Let your partner help you because you both are on one and the same team. And you can always support each other.
2. Intimate moments
It’s evident that if a person doesn’t know what the problem is, they can’t resolve it. However, many couples are sure that sex problems can disappear by themselves. But they won’t. That’s why common sense should prevail over shyness.
3. Indifference toward kids
Of course, it’s a myth that everyone likes kids. You can postpone family planning if you’re not ready. But you should discuss it with your partner.
4. Financial issues
“We have no money.” “We don’t need to buy it now.” Some people are too shy to say these things because they are afraid to look avaricious and greedy. It’s really important to discuss a family budget using the right words.
5. Partner’s drawbacks and failures
You shouldn’t always blame your beloved, but you definitely have to discuss everything in a peaceful manner because it’s bad to keep it all to yourself.
6. The right to stay alone
Everyone has their own right to become a couch potato for a while. Sometimes we need to stay alone with our thoughts and have no one disturb us. We should understand that the phrase “I want to have some rest” is not equal to “I don’t love you anymore.”
7. Personal issues
There is no doubt that no one likes it when someone tells the same story over and over again. But silence makes the situation worse. There is a fine line between reticence and an unwillingness to upset someone.
It’s good when you reach a compromise with your partner’s parents. But if you feel that they want to control your life, don’t hesitate to have a little heart-to-heart. Remind your partner (and yourself) that you have your own family, not the whole family clan.
9. Plans for the future
You don’t have to follow the “right” life scenario if it is contradictory to your dreams. Needless sacrifices are terrible for both of you. Do you want any changes in your life? Share them with your partner. What if your beloved wants the same? If they don’t, you may discuss other variants.
10. Appearance complexes
A happy relationship and criticisms of appearance can never be found together. Of course, everyone likes handsome facial features and fit bodies. But you love your partner not because of their appearance. Your beloved follows the rule “don’t judge a book by its cover” as well.
