Love is a desire that everybody has. We all want that perfect relationship. We all want to meet and settle down with the “right” person, and most of us want such a relationship to last.
And yet we fail, and yet the majority of romantic partnerships end in dissolution. And below are some reasons why a relationship might fail:
Reasons for Relationship Failure
- Lack of communication
- Not giving personal space to each other
- Money Issues
- Cheating on your partner
- Lack of time for each other
- Physical distance
- Emotional distance
- Lack of communication:
Communication an essential part of any relationship. But sometimes in our relationship instead of communicating with our partner, we tend to assume things. And these assumptions always lead to misunderstandings and then come along the way other problems.
In the initial stage of dating, everything seems alright. Both of you talk about compromising and you actually do compromise. But slowly and gradually you get tired of it and you just stop abruptly which will burn the relationship from both sides.
- Not giving personal space to each other:
No matter how madly, truly, deeply you are in love with that person everybody needs their personal space so does your partner. Not giving them that space will cause ill effects. Being possessive is okay but being over possessive about them is not okay and it will lead to misunderstandings.
- Lack of respect and support for each other:
Having love is a wonderful thing, but love is not always not enough. You need respect for each other. And also, if you do not support them in their best and worst, then it will fail eventually.
- Money Issues:
There is a greater possibility of financial incompatibility when the couple has been together from a long time in a committed relationship. And when there is a money issue between a couple it can cause a lot of ill effects to the relationship, it can cause deepest psychological fears and insecurities, including and not just limited to trust, safety, security, power, control, and survival.
- Cheating on your partner:
Trust is the soil in which a healthy relationship will be grounded, nurtured and the foundation for their growth. Breaking that trust is like putting a big crack in that soil. The relationship will never survive and even if it does there will always be a broken piece.
- Lack of time for each other:
It’s understood that with this crazy career oriented lifestyle, nobody has time for anybody. But taking out a small amount of time for your significant other will make a huge difference. May be a “I remember you text” or a short duration call even if you are busy will help the relationship.
- Physical distance:
There’s nothing wrong with having a long distance relationship. Most of the relationships are time tested and become stronger with the long distance relationships. But, this distance might bring problems in the areas of physical intimacy or bring about emotional problems as well along with it.
- Emotional distance:
When in a relationship if you’re emotionally incompatible or not match each other’s frequency, this can lead to a lot of unmet emotional needs. It is important for a relationship to have similar emotional partners. It’s okay if you are not on the same page but at least you have to be in the similar lane. It’s true that relationship might fail because of one or more of the above factors.
So if you feel that your relationship is going through these kind of problems, it may be best to try and resolve it so it doesn’t ruin the hard work you’ve put into your relationship. Fix your relationship before it’s too late.
