If you and your partner are having issues, it doesn't mean that you're destined to break up. Even people who are perfect for each other go through rough patches, especially when certain outside factors intervene with their dating life. Unfortunately, there are a lot of pesky things that can get in the way of your love. To prove it, here are a few things that can complicated even the happiest relationships:
1. Money Issues
Financial disputes are the number one reasons why married couples get divorced. Even if you love your partner with all of your might, it's hard to remain in a relationship with them when they don't treat money in the same fashion that you do. If you've been trying to save up for a vacation or retirement, but your man randomly spends your cash on video game systems and big bar bills without asking you, then you're bound to fight about it.
Maybe you'll get jealous of your man's new secretary and accuse him of wanting to date her. However, your jealousy might have nothing to do with other women. You might be jealousy of how close he is with his family or how well he's doing at work. If your jealousy gets out of control, then your relationship will be headed for the rocks.
3. Unexpected Deaths
Everyone mourns in different ways. If you or your partner lose a close friend or family member, then you might distance yourself from one another. You might even start drinking more or dabbling in drugs in order to ease the pain. Either way, the way you deal with death can put a strain on your relationship.
4. Disapproving Families
If you're young and still living under your parent's roof, they could forbid you from dating your soulmate. Even if you're older, your parents might want you to date someone from a certain religion or culture. If you're close with your family, then their hatred of your partner could complicate your happy relationship.
5. Long Work Hours
Even though you know that your partner has to hold a job, it can be frustrating to spend the majority of the week without him. If he always has to stay late for meetings or randomly gets called in to work, then it could ruin the plans you've set up. Even though you'll try to be understanding, the situation could still make your relationship suffer.
6. Different Plans for the Future
You might currently be having the time of your life with your partner. However, if you want to have children, and he doesn't, then it's not a good idea for you two to stay together. Unless one of you ends up changing your mind, then one of you will be unhappy in the long run.
7. Raising Your Children
Children can be a blessing. Unfortunately, they can also cause cracks in the sturdiest relationship. If you and your partner disagree on how to raise your children, or if you let your child get in the way of having private time with your partner, then you two might end up parting ways.
If you two are meant to be, then you'll be able to fight through any issues that pop up. Have any of these things ruined one of your past relationships?
