How do couples that have been together for years drift apart? How do couples that were so loving at one point, begin to hate each other? These are questions that we’ve all asked ourselves after seeing a split that we never imagined would happen. The best way that you can prevent these questions popping up in regards to your own relationship is by examining what you’re doing right now.
In a long term relationship it’s easy to slightly loose focus, only to find out years later that you’re completely off track. How did it happen, and how did you get there? It probably wouldn’t be a simple answer of one thing that went wrong, but instead a series of small steps that led to a path you wouldn’t have chosen for yourself. That happens often in relationships, and can ultimately lead to divorce.
To make sure that you keep the focus on your relationship, and finish like you started (or hopefully even better), we’ve compiled a quick list of 10 ways that you are setting your marriage up for failure. If some of the actions on our list seem too familiar, you may want to make an adjustment before it’s too late. After you view the list let me know if I missed anything in the comment section below.
