The Number One Reason Relationships Fail

Today, we’re going to be honest about relationships and the number one reason why they fail. According to statistics, you’re more likely to break up with your partner than you are to stay together. As human beings, our lives vary but we also have some similarities. Those similarities provide pieces of evidence towards the truth as to why our relationships fail.
I want to share some documented categories that failed relationships fall into:
  • Trust issues
  • Communication issues
  • Differences in expectations
  • Differences in priorities
  • Inability to manage emotions
  • Different values
With all that, there is still a looming prediction to the failure of your relationships. Let me give you a hint—it has to do with how you argue with your partner. Also, there’s no such thing as a perfect relationship. We all have conflicts in our relationships, but it’s how we deal with those conflicts that determine whether or not we will have a healthy, long-lasting relationship.

Knowing how to argue in a relationship is an important skill you will need to learn if you want your relationship to last. The argument part is not the number one cause of breakups, but the issue generally reveals itself during the communications break down of an argument.

You see, the number one reason for relationship failures is feeling contempt towards your partner and acting upon it. Contempt is the number one predictor of a divorce. Everybody has angry moments in their relationships, but when you start to feel contempt towards your partner, that’s a clear sign something needs to change.
Contempt is the feeling that you are better than your partner. It generally comes out when you make derisive comments with the intention of being insulting. It’s calling them names, mocking them, being sarcastic or rolling your eyes at them. If your once playful teasing or your teasing is mean-spirited, such as making fun of something you know they are sensitive about, that is contempt. What’s even worse is calling your partner belittling names and meaning it.
How do I fix contempt? Instead of focusing on all the things you hate about your partner, start focusing and appreciating what he or she adds to the relationship. If you’re feeling contemptuous, take a moment to imagine what your life would be like if you’d never met your partner.

Finally, couples who can laugh, smile, or share moments during a fight are happier in general and better at fighting against negative cycles. If you need help, seek professional marriage counseling.
