What do you do if your partner continually breaks promises?

Cupid’s Advice:

If you’re in a relationship and your partner continually breaks promises, it’s time to take some action. Here are some options:

1. Talk to your partner: It might sound simple, but sometimes the best solution to broken promises is by talking to your partner and getting more information. Making them aware of how these breaks in trust affect you may appease the situation.

2. Put it in perspective: Decide whether their broken word is something minor or major. If it’s something as inconsequential as not putting out the trash after he said he would, there may just be a problem with communication. Don’t let a minor problem escalate for no reason.

3. Think about your relationship: Discern how you want things to develop in your relationship. Perhaps make a list of pros and cons and look at them with an objective eye. If the pros significant outweigh the cons, it may still be worth working on the relationship.
