Cupid’s Advice:

No matter how long the relationship, we all encounter our likes, dislikes, and most importantly, the common ground with our partners. Marriage is kind of tricky. Every day, you respond “until death do us part” and “I do”, but what happens when you begin to respond “I don’t”? Cupid has some relationship advice on how to know when your marriage is definitely over:

1. Communication starts to change: We all go through that honeymoon phase of our relationships, and then we start to get comfortable with each other. It’s healthy to have arguments here and there, but if your partner starts disrespecting you, not caring,    and not telling you important information, then you likely have a problem. Communication is the root of every successful relationship. If your significant other starts to talk less or gets mad at everything you say or do, it’s time to have a serious conversation about why this might be happening.

2. Not making time for each other: A relationship does not end when you get married. It’s important to still schedule in date nights and continue the ongoing flow of bliss. A spark dies when you don’t continue to maintain it. If you have children and busy schedules, you can still make a romantic dinner or watch a movie. The more creative and thoughtful you are, the better.

3. Start noticing suspicious behavior: Is your partner leaving without telling you where they are are going, spending too much time on their phone, or hanging out with new friends? These are tactics that can lead to extramarital affairs. Confront your partner about this, and if it turns into a serious argument, seek out professional help.
