We all experience relationship trouble from time to time. After all, not everything in life goes smoothly. Nevertheless, you need to be aware of when you are experiencing typical relationship drama, and when you are on the verge of a collapse. So, let’s take a look at these signs in further detail.

Signs Your Relationship Is In Trouble

1. You argue about the same things again, and again, and again.

Arguing does not necessarily mean you need to call in the family law solicitors. However, it does mean you need to take some sort of action in order to break this cycle. Arguing about the same thing, again and again, means you are arguing for the sake of doing so. It also means that neither of you is willing to compromise. You both defend your position to the end, and you both feel like you are a loser in the end.  

2. You don’t feel like you are ‘good enough’.

Does your partner criticise you all of the time? Do you feel like you are never good enough for him or her? If that is the case, then you need to talk to your partner about the way you are feeling. This is actually one of the most common reasons for relationship breakdowns. This does not mean your partner does not love you anymore – it could simply be that he or she has gotten so comfortable they have overlooked the impact of the things they say.

3. You have ghosts from past relationships.

We all come into relationships with some form of baggage. However, if you are yet to deal with this, this could be what is holding your relationship back. You may have triggers that make you upset or angry, which may seem like you are overreacting to your partner but really it is to do with what has happened to you previously. You are going to need to find a way to deal with this so that you can move forward in your current relationship. Professional assistance can help.

4. One or both of you put your children (or others) first all of the time

Last but not least, of course, your children are the most important people in your life. You experienced a love like never before when they came into your world. However, if you put them first 24/7, your partner will end up feeling neglected. You need to prioritise your relationship too. If you don’t, you can also cause insecure and demanding children while your partner feels alienated and resentful.

If you have noticed any of the signs that have been mentioned above, this does not necessarily mean you need to call it quits on your relationship. However, you do need to make sure you address the problems you are experiencing so that your relationship takes a turn for the better. Good luck!
