Let’s face it ladies, we all want to have perfect, long-lasting romantic relationships. Each of us wants to meet a special man, fall in love with him, build a family and live happily ever after. However, real life is always completely different from our dream world. When we finally meet someone special, we usually understand that everything is much more complicated than we used to think. It is rather hard to build a strong and happy relationship, even if you really love someone. The partners should be careful, attentive, sincere, honest, patient and wise to build a family.

Unfortunately, not every couple is able to build a long-term healthy relationship. However, as a rule, it is their fault since they don’t work enough to stay together. Every relationship can be saved, if the partners are ready understand their mistakes, accept their faults, and to listen to each other.

Today, we are going to provide you with some important information. Breakups don’t happen overnight. It’s a process that can be stopped. It’s just important to see the first signs and correct your mistakes. Below you can see the list of the most common warning signs that you should never ignore, if you want to save your relationship.

#1 Excessively busy lives that keep the partners apart

Yes, we all have our own lives and plans and it is important to keep private space for each of the partners. But when they get too busy and stop making effort to spend time together, their relationship can be ruined. People are so focused on their careers and personal problems, that they forget how to be a couple.

If you want to maintain a happy and healthy relationship with your loved one, you can’t neglect it. You should pay attention and make time for your partner. Spend time together, communicate, travel, or just do something interesting. It is not as difficult as you may think.

#2 Constant nitpicking and criticism

It is one of the most common mistakes. When partners are together for a long time, for some reason they start criticizing each other even for some small unimportant things. For example, one partner is irritated with the way the other one chews his food.

When such a situation happens, it’s important to talk about it. The partners should determine what brought them together and focus on it. In this way, you’ll be able to concentrate on your relationship and your partner’s positive features and refresh your true feelings.

#3 Lack of trust and support

Support is one of the most important things in our lives. When we are kids, we get it from our parents. But when we grow older, we want to get it from our loved ones too. However, there are many cases when the partners don’t support each other when it’s needed.

As a rule, it happens because they don’t trust each other anymore. Even if there was not any huge betrayal in the relationship, a combination of little things can make us stop trusting our loved ones. When it happens we can’t bare our souls in front of our partners, and, therefore, can’t support them when they need it. To solve this problem, it’s important to talk about it. The best thing is to consult a therapist.

#4 Not talking about the elephant in the room

When it’s obvious that there is some great problem in the relationship, partners still avoid talking about it. It’s a big mistake. Communication is vital for the relationship. Yes, sometimes conversations can cause lots of negative emotions, but it doesn’t mean that you should avoid them.

To solve the problem, don’t be afraid to talk to each other. In this way, you’ll determine what problem stops you from being happy, what each of you like and don’t like and what way of solution will be the best for both of you. Unfortunately, very often, simple communication is underestimated and neglected.

#5 Cheating

It seems to be obvious. However, only one-third of relationships break up for this reason. The main thing you should understand is that people who are happy with their partners will never cheat on them. They just don’t have a reason to look for another partner.

Only when they feel no support, love, and appreciation, do people try to find all this stuff with someone else. You can start your relationship again after cheating only if you talk about it, figure out the root of the problem, and find the way to correct your mistake.
