Heidi Klum and Seal‘s family vacation to Aspen over the holidays appeared to be about fun, love and skiing.  However, sources told People that the trip to a Colorado resort is where the now separated couple realized their marriage was over.  “Aspen didn’t go as well as planned … there were more lows than highs,” one source says.  “Aspen was the final straw.”  The couple were often apart due to work commitments, but planned to enjoy quality time while on the trip.  “When they came together for Christmas as a family, things had changed and they fought a lot,” another source says.  “Their Aspen trip was a bit of a mess.  Instead of enjoying being back together as a family, it was difficult for them to get along.”   During their vacation, Klum reached the point where she was “done with arguing” and thought it would be best to separate before their arguing affected their kids.

How do you know when your relationship is over?

Cupid’s Advice: 

Ending your relationship  is definitely not easy, especially when there are kids involved.  But, when you and your mate can no longer seem to make things work, it may be the best thing to do:

1. You’re always arguing: No relationship is perfect, but when you can never have a moment of peace with each other and can never seem to stop arguing or make it right, it’s time to pack your bags.

2. You’d rather be away from your lover: There are times that you will need your space in a relationship to sort some things out, but if it gets to the point that while you’re away you don’t miss your partner at all, then you need to leave.

3. Body language starts to change:  If your mate no longer makes eye contact with you during conversation, that can be a troubling sign.  Also, if they’re no longer in the mood or seem uninterested in having sex, that may be a clear indicator that they want to avoid having an emotional connection with you.
