4 Signs Your Relationship May be in Trouble


4 Signs Your Relationship May be in Trouble
Red flags that indicate your relationship may have some serious problems.

Is your relationship in trouble?

Here are four signs that it could be:


1.  You’re finding more reasons to spend time apart.

2. You’re arguing with your partner more than you used to.

3. You often feel the only reason you’re staying together is because of the time you’ve already invested in your relationship.

4. You no longer feel sexually attracted to your partner.

Relationships usually don’t go downhill overnight—little things happen over time that make couples feel that their relationship are no longer workable.

If you see any of the four signs listed above in your relationship, let these signs serve as a wakeup call to help get the two of you talking and working on the issues that are slowly driving you apart. Don’t slip into autopilot with your love relationship and think that things will “just workout.”  This seldom happens. Even the best relationships require work at some point.  Work with your partner and figure out why you’re having problems and come up with a mutual plan to help get your relationship back to where it needs to be.
