Are you worried that your relationship is on the rocks? Sometimes it can be hard to tell if you're just going through a rough patch or if you're headed for a breakup. Check out these four major signs your relationship is in trouble:
1. You're Bored All the Time
While it's completely normal to feel bored at different points in your relationship, it's a bad sign if you're bored all of the time. Do you find that you never have any fun with your partner? Do you only enjoy the company of friends, family or co-workers? If so, this is a red flag for your relationship. You shouldn't feel bored all the time when you're with your partner. You should still find enjoyment in each other's company and be able to have fun together. Constant boredom could be a sign that the relationship has run its course.
2. You Rarely (Or Never) Have Sex Anymore
The longer a relationship lasts, the more likely you are to experience ruts in your sex life. This totally expected. However, if you cannot come out of that rut, you may have a problem. If you've gone for a very long period of time without having sex, it could be that you and your partner are not feeling the same passion you once felt for one another…which means the relationship could be headed for its end. Healthy couples are able to re-ignite that spark and get their sex life back on track. If you're having trouble doing that, things aren't looking good.
3. You Don't Celebrate Anniversaries Or Milestones Together
Now, don't get us wrong here. You don't have to celebrate every single anniversary in some big, extravagant way for the rest of your lives. With that said, if you find that neither one of you cares to acknowledge your anniversary (or just plain forgets it every year) it could mean that you no longer feel that love and attachment you once felt for your partner. You no longer value the meaning behind your anniversary and you no longer feel the desire to celebrate the milestones you've reached together. This could be the beginning of the end.
4. You Feel Resentment Towards Your Partner
One of the biggest signs that your relationship is in trouble is feeling resentment towards your partner. Your partner is the person in your life that you should always feel love and compassion for, not anger and resentment. Do you find yourself blaming them for everything? You may feel that being with your partner has ruined your life or ruined your chance of having the life you once wanted. This all falls under the feeling of resentment and it is very bad for your relationship long term. The resentment will only build as time goes on and eventually lead to the relationship crashing and burning.
