9 Things People Say That Kill Relationships

Love, Heartbreak

"Then maybe we shouldn't be together!" and more phrases that kill relationships.

1. "Then maybe we shouldn't be together!"

Oh no she didn't! Anyone who says something like this may fulfill that exact prophecy. You wouldn't tell your boss you're quitting your job unless you meant it, would you? But sometimes, in a relationship, people are tempted to pull out the nuclear option just to get the other person off their backs: "If you don't like the way I season veal, then you'll never understand me! We should just break up!"
