10 Habits That Can Ruin Relationships


There’s nothing more exciting or enjoyable than the early stages of a new relationship. Often referred to as the ‘honeymoon’ phase, it happens when a couple is totally blinded by their newfound love for each other and they don’t notice any red flags or annoyances.

After a couple of months, however, when the blinders come off, the true colors start to show. This is when many couples go through a different stage in which they might experience trials and tribulations.

You partner’s quirky habits go from silly and endearing to annoying and irritable. You no longer find it cute when they leave the toilet seat up or forget to take out the garbage. This is the point in the relationship where the couple has to actively choose to continue loving each other and decide if they can continue to make it work.

Although you might not know it, there are a few things that can cause a relationship to go South. These key behaviors are sure to ruin a relationship. Making a point of knowing them and understanding how to avoid them is an ideal way to have a successful and long-lasting relationship.

1. Acting Single: Relationships and love are not always easy. It takes time, work, and dedication in order for two people to live together in harmony–and there are certain behaviors that will only make things more difficult.

One definite thing that will put a rift in your relationship is if you act single. Do you forget to text back or make plans without telling them? Do you keep things from your partner? If you answered yes to these questions then it’s a sign that you aren’t ready to commit to the relationship and you should allow the person to move on.

2. Being Financially Greedy: The saying is that money makes the world go round, but it is often the route to problems in relationships.

When you enter a serious relationship you become a team. If you continue spending and saving like you’re single this could cause a rift between you and your partner.
