Cupid’s Advice:

Many married couples try to hold on to a deteriorating relationship out of fear of the unknown. They believe the problems they’re facing will simply disappear or they try to stick it out for the sake of the children. As a couple, it’s important to make the tough decisions – even if it means the end of marriage. Cupid has some advice:

1. Constant fighting: Having the occasional argument is normal in a relationship, but if you and your spouse are constantly abusing one another in any way – it may be time to end the marriage. Once abuse enters a relationship, it’s almost always over. Marriage is about love and respect –¬† it’s not about putting each other down.

2. Counseling isn’t working: If you and your significant other have been seeking professional help and it hasn’t changed anything in your relationship, it may be time to call it quits. If you don’t see any improvement in your marriage, then there isn’t much else you can do.

3. The love is gone:¬†The chemistry between you and your partner should stay at a constant. If you no longer feel a spark between you and your boo, it may be an early warning sign that the marriage is drawing to a close. You may feel committed to staying in the marriage for the children, but you’re only doing more harm than good. Children know when they two people they love the most don’t love each other.
