2. Soulmates don’t always agree.
It is absolutely FALSE that soulmates “never argue or disagree.” In fact, the bond that exists between many soulmates sometimes means that differences of opinion are even more intense than they’d otherwise be. The belief that soulmates always get along and agree can inflame an already tense situation.
When you and your partner don’t see eye-to-eye on an issue, remember to breathe and don’t take it personally. Stay focused on what the question or decision is and make it your intention to be honest as you keep your connection with one another strong.

3. Soulmate relationships don’t always last.
It’s never easy when a relationship ends and perhaps even more difficult when you and your soulmate breakup. This is partly because people assume that once they find their soulmate, they’ll be together forever.
Unfortunately, infidelity, unresolvable differences and disconnection also happen when soulmates are together and can lead to breakup or divorce. Being with your soulmate doesn’t give you a pass on relationship habits that tear you two apart so stay aware and address problems when they first arise.
4. Soulmate relationships are for your growth.
What’s often forgotten is this-- your soulmate is NOT in your life to complete you or to make you happy. Your soulmate is here to teach you and help you to grow. For some people, this means that the soulmate relationship is difficult and contentious because that’s what is required--- in that place and time-- for the lesson to be learned.
The opportunity for you is to view your soulmate as a teacher and stay open to what you learn as you interact with and love him or her. When you feel irritated, annoyed or offended by your soulmate, take a step back. Ask yourself what role you play in the situation and what you are called to do differently.
5. Soulmate relationships need regular care and attention.
Soulmates need to know that, in many ways, their relationship is exactly like any other love relationship or marriage. It cannot survive and thrive without regular, high-quality care.
