Cupid’s Advice:

Breaking up with someone is extremely difficult, particularly when you have been together for years and years, like this celebrity couple. Check out these three ways to help you know if it’s truly time to call it quits:

1. You’re constantly fighting: One of the most obvious red flags in a relationship is that you’re having nonstop screaming matches with each other. If every little issue turns into a huge blowout fight, you might want to rethink whether or not this is the right situation. As a couple, you should be able to work things out calmly and with understanding every single time.

2. You feel like a second choice: You should never feel like you’re not your partner’s first priority. If you feel second to their friends, their coworkers, another romantic interest, or even their career, it’s time to say something. Speak up about your feelings, and if nothing changes, it may be time to part ways.
