A new study reveals that 55 percent of women would leave their man over little annoyances. We reveal the most breakup-worthy habits.
Most of us can list (at least) ten traits we dislike — or even hate — about our spouses. Whether they are always late for appointments or they spend too much time working, the traits we hate the most usually become the focus of our worst fights, mainly because resolution feels impossible.

By Marianne Beach, for GalTime We’ve all heard the infamous break-up line: “It’s not you, it’s me!” But what if it really IS you that’s been sabotaging your relationship-- without even knowing it? Psychiatrist Rebecca Gladding, MD, co-author of “You are Not Your Brain: The 4-Step Solution for Changing Bad Habits, Ending Unhealthy Thinking, and Taking Control of Your Life” offers us the top five bad relationship habits we slip into...and how to break them once and for all.
Wise parents understand the importance of giving their children both roots and wings. Children must learn to stand on their own two feet, to trust their own judgment, to pick up the pieces when they make mistakes and to chart the life course that makes sense to them. However, experience in my own life and my practice along with recent research says that living alone can actually cause depression.
We’ve all been there – he’s the perfect guy, except… Some of these complaints are relatively minor; he throws his sweaty workout underwear on top of your bath towel, or he leaves the razor stubble all over the bathroom sink without rinsing it down. And some are much more serious; such as infidelity, physical abuse, or substance abuse. As far as the second category goes, as long as marriage and children are not yet involved, it’s best to walk away and stay away. If a man cheats, it does not get better with time; in fact it usually gets worse.
Do you want to give your sweetheart something extra special for Valentine's Day? Are you tired of the same old flowers, candy, corny greeting card and dinner routine? As lovely and appreciated as these gifts can be, what if this year you give your beloved something that they would never see coming, something that will make both of you happy and is totally free?
Behind closed doors, everyone is a little bit of a weirdo. And no one knows this better than the people we love. I never knew I has such offensive toothpaste habits until I got married. Apparently, it's not okay to squeeze from the middle and toss out a tube when it gets too crusty. Who knew? The answer: my husband. In this week's edition of "Is This Normal?" we asked you for the weirdest things that your partner does.
I was wondering how he was able to breathe. He had been talking non-stop for most of the night, covering every topic under the sun: his job, his family life, where he vacations, how big his apartment is, what languages he can speak, and now, as if he's finally running out of things to say, what he was like in high school. Which was 10 years ago.
After getting together with someone new, how long does it take before that person's quirky mannerisms become super annoying? Off the cuff, most people would answer seven years, as in "the seven-year itch," but a recent study has revealed that the spark dies about three years into a relationship.
Where I come from, there's a saying: "Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day; teach a man to fish and he will abandon his family every weekend." A fellow named Lee Jackson must be from the same area. In a story that could have come from an episode of The Simpsons, Mr. Lee Jackson decided to spend a little extra time on the lake rather than with his family. His marriage, unsurprisingly, ended in divorce.
You love your S.O. You really do. But, sometimes, you wonder how it is that you've made it this far without turning to homicide. Deep down, he's a good person and, well, obviously he completes you. But you just hate it when he throws his dirty clothes on the floor—right next to the hamper—no matter how many times you ask him not to. And the coffee table is a mishmash of his dirty dishes. And dude. It's not as funny as he thinks it is when he "plays the drums" on your thunder thighs. Stay strong, readers. Remain calm.

The blog MyHusbandIsAnnoying.com is written by Tiffanie Wong. And man is she right. Her husband, Mark Joyella, has some annoying habits. But are Mark's idiosyncrasies, amusing as they are, worth airing? Is a dangerous dirty laundry precedence being set? And what does anyone really expect when cohabiting (though married) in a small apartment?
Guys, we love you. You make our hearts swoon, you're the fathers of our children, you are advisors, companions and friends, but there are certain gender-specific things you do that drive women nuts. For example, leaving the toilet seat up? We know this is a clichéd male complaint, but seriously. It's rude. Your momma raised you wrong if you find it hard to flush and lower before leaving the bathroom.
