Warning Signs Your Relationship Isn’t Going To Last

Warning Signs Your Relationship Isn't Going to Last

If you’re worried that your relationship isn’t going to last, this is already a warning sign that you have trouble in your relationship. Maybe you’re just looking at this out of curiosity. Whatever your reasons, if you notice any of the following signs too, it could mean the end of your relationship.

You Don’t Have Lives Away From Each Other

You and your partner should not be living in each other’s pockets. It isn’t realistic or healthy, and it just shows that you have no other meaning or purpose in life. You both need to have passions and purposes if you want fulfilled lives and relationships. If you spend too much time together, chances are your relationship will turn sour faster as you begin to notice the things that annoy you quicker. Your only passion should not be one another.

You Argue About Doing Your Own Thing

If one of you does want to do their own thing and the other one is always causing arguments about it, this is the sign of a deeper issue. Is the one that starts the arguments insecure? Why are they so concerned with you doing your own thing? Is it trust? You should never feel bad for living your life. Working on issues like this is important, but if you can’t it isn’t your job to sacrifice your life.

You Started Arguing Early On

Arguments are normal once you’ve been together a while. They give you a chance to each work through your issues too, so you can eventually become a stronger couple. That is, of course, as long as you both remember that an argument should be about coming to a happy conclusion for both parties. It isn’t about point scoring. However, if you argue a lot and you’re still not all that far into the relationship, this could spell trouble.

Warning Signs Your Relationship Isn't Going to Last


You’re Not Friends

You and your partner do need to be friends if you’re going to be forever. Forever is a long time to be with somebody that you’re not friends with.

You Criticize One Another

Criticizing one another is usually just a way of projecting your insecurities and issues onto somebody else. You shouldn’t criticise one another, as this can slowly chip away at your relationship. It can be very hurtful too, so watch what you say too and around your partner. Just because you’re comfortable with them does not mean you should be able to speak to them however you want. If you feel like your partner is disrespectful to you more often than not, maybe you should look at an online divorce website to decide what you want.

No Motivation To Improve The Relationship

Relationships change and evolve as the people in them do. This means that sometimes, you both will need to work towards improving the relationship. If neither of you have motivation to improve the relationship, then this is a bad sign.

These signs don’t always mean your relationship won’t last, but they are a good indicator that you have problems in your relationship. Leave your own thoughts below. Come back soon!

  1. As a young widow, I have to say that you will regret it if you don’t try to make it last. You don’t want to live with regrets when the other person is gone. You can’t be self-centered if you want a relationship to last.It is about a commitment, not a convenience.

  2. Being friends is key to establishing any real life-long fulfilling relationship. Also, having your own life outside of your relationship is extremely rewarding.

  3. These are great warning signs. I think the criticism is the most hurtful, but sometimes two people just don’t mesh right. I think it comes down to appropriate compromise and yes time apart so you enjoy your time together.

  4. Being best friends with my husband always comes first. And realizing that when we argue that we are NOT enemies helps too

  5. You have to support and love each other and give each other grace. There’s always ways to make things work if both people are up for it.

  6. These are great warning signs to watch in a relationship but instead of righting your relationship off, use these to focus on where to work on your relationship. Criticism is very harmful and the one thing I have learned to do is ask God for help on how I respond to my husband and give me grace for the tough times instead of praying for God to change him. You can’t control the other person but you can control yourself.

  7. Yes, these are definitely some good signs that a relationship is in trouble. My husband and I lived in separate towns while we dated, due to each of us going to graduate school in different cities. In the end, I think this helped us be more appreciative of each other and also comfortable with doing our own things once-in-awhile. We just celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary. 🙂

  8. My bf is my best friend. I believe that the best way to save the relationship and avoid these warning signs is to talk. Always find ways to communicate with each other. It will make the relationship and friendship last longer. 🙂

  9. These are great tips! A lot of them I wish I would have known for previous relationships. Luckily, my husband and I make a pretty good team now and I’m pretty sure we’ll last 😉

  10. those are some great tips. My wife and I run our business together (HoneyTrek), so we are together about 23 hours a day….but somehow we make it work 🙂

  11. Some great info here!!!! This is exactly why my first manage didn’t last. You have to have your own lives. Thankfully I’m remarried and this time around things are a million times
    Better! And we are both free to be ourselves
