Cupid’s Advice:

In life not everything works out and the same goes for relationships. A break-up is hard no matter what the circumstance, but when a relationship is not working out sometimes there is no other choice but to end it. Cupid has some advice on how to decide if it’s time to call it quits on your marriage.

1. You’re no longer happy: One of the major signs your marriage is not working out is if you are no longer smiling. Happiness is key to every good, healthy and long-lasting relationship. If you and your partner are no longer making each other happy it may be time to move on.

2. You’re fighting all the time: Every couple have arguments and fights every once in a while and studies show it can sometime be healthy for a relationship, but if you are fighting all the time that isn’t a good sign. If you find yourselves fighting and arguing over even the smallest things it could be because you are not the same people you use to be.  Too much of anything isn’t good and the same goes with fighting.

3. Stop spending time together: If you find that you’re no longer spending that much time together and are okay with it, that’s be a big clue something is wrong. You and your honey should want to spend time in each other’s company or at least put in the effort to. If you find yourselves distancing yourselves from each other it could be because you’re both going on different paths.
