When to End a Relationship: Signs That a Relationship is Ending

1. Hidden Excessive Phone Bills

It is a known indisputable fact that under the boundary of marital bliss, you share everything and everything is open to you.

Suddenly, the phone bill is shielded from your sight?

Ask yourself why that list of numbers must remain a mystery. That’s because your partner is trying to hide the pattern of calls made over the past month.

Yes, it will drive you crazy but it will tell you in real time that your number was called only a limited number of times compared to a certain number – just ensure it isn’t the mum.

As the saying goes, ‘it starts with a hello.

2. Night-Out with the Boys is Every Night

Honoring moments with family and friends is normal in a relationship.

His famous night out with his friends does not ruin your relationship because it is alone time to relax – but not sow wheat!

Always remember that when this situation occurs, it’s time for you to draw the line.

Don’t wait as he introduces you to his new son. Saving all of his friend’s numbers will not do you any good.

Keep track of his hours after work and how he smells when he comes home. Just wish he wasn’t showering someplace.

3. Intimate Time Is Over

Do you remember when he just turned on the TV and waited for you to fall asleep?

Not that he was tired of spending the entire day at work and needed a break. He spends his time and energy cuddling with other people! When your partner loses the magic touch, you will soon know that somebody else is receiving the loving touch that was reserved for you.

Sooner or later, he will totally avoid the opportunity to be the next you – act now before it happens.

4. Insecurity Kills a Cat

Being pleased with one another’s accomplishments is a good sign of a loving partner, but when he starts to envy every time you get bonuses and rewards at work, it is time to call it quits.

There are challenges in marriage, particularly when the wife earns more than her partner. This is the first sign of insecurity in a man that extends beyond his ego.

Don’t let your partner sulk in a corner and wish you were dead for him to get all the compliments and attention.

Once he starts ignoring you, it is time for you to give his final orders.

5. Bonds mean Family not Colleagues

Holidays are often the most awaited time in family life but why are they often left behind?

If your partner is saving up for a trip to a place you have never been before, spending quality time with him there’s great, but wait a minute – why would his office colleague make the travel plans?

The added value in a journey should all the time be you and not someone else trying to be you.

6. Separate Special and Important Holidays

This is the time for serious thought as he has not only forgotten your birthday, the day you married, your son’s baseball practice, but has been planning for weeks what to wear to his secretary’s weekend party.

When you feel as although you’re a single parent anytime his presence and attention is required, then it’s time for you to set a quit date.

7. Nothing New in the House but Maximum Credit Cards

When was the last time your partner bought you something for the house? The next thing you’ll know is that his credit card was cut two days ago. What is he shopping for?

There are times when it isn’t another woman. Not necessarily towards why most marriages fail. Take a long look at your partner.

He may be addicted to any of the following: explicit adult films, illegal drugs or gambling. Keep an eye on your jewellery. That may come next.

8. Arguing 24/7. Including Holidays

What happened to the marriage vows that said, “rich or poor till we part?” Throughout the days of your life, nothing starts and ends without a fight.

Do you end up frowning every time you try to work things out with your partner?

Even the smallest thing to discuss ends in a fight. It affects your health and the stress you are under may end up supplying you with some medical problems.

When you find it difficult to meet in the middle or even coexist, there isn’t any other way but to apply for unlimited leave – from one another.

9. Useless Views

Spending a few hours with your mother over the weekend is insupportable for your partner. Not rarely this triggers a pair war.

There used to be a time when he got mad when he had to miss a basketball game because he had to drive you to your family’s party.

Every day, you must fight without winning any rebuttals. When you cannot stand one another there is no point in staying together.

10. Failed Health, Unresponsive Heart

Men will try to be unfaithful. If they win they will continue and if they get caught it will stop but still try to continue.

This is the start of abusing your body with alcohol or even drugs. Don’t find a way to push him away and lose the battle in the process.

If your heart is no longer beating for him, do not torture yourself until you are in line at the hospital.

11. 6 packs of Beer to 6 packs of Abs

Sudden changes in your partner’s lifestyle are often one of the signs that she or he is doing something fishy.

Suddenly, he is shaving, cutting his hair differently, and hitting the gym.

It does not take Sherlock Holmes to solve this mystery.

Think again.

He turns the table on you. His accusations were meant to hide his own indiscretions.

14. Reflection in a Lying Mirror

He kept lying about having to go out to buy something. The problem was that what he brought home wasn’t something that would take him five hours to shop for.

Think again, he most likely made excuses so he could spend time with that evil witch.

15. Too Sweet for Comfort

This is the time to solve the problem when he’s too affectionate with you. He’s trying to offer you fake affection to get your mind off his new routine.

He’s not in the least bit affectionate, so it is time for you to consider why he is really being so crybaby lately.

16. Diamonds for His Dame is All But a Game

Buying you a rock when it isn’t even your anniversary is questionable particularly if you understand how much he is earning. He makes you feel special so he can go about his devilish ways.

How big is that rock again?

If it was small, the larger piece is now on someone else’s finger.

17. Do not Enter the Office

Wives generally visit their spouses particularly when they’ve excellent news to share that cannot wait anymore.

Is he afraid that you might see someone else sitting on his lap in one of the picture frames on his desk?

He might take you someplace fancy. But why did not he tell you about it?

He tries to lure other women into his trap.

It’s good that the computer’s browser history can point you to the information you need to know about this.

19. Friends Go on Break

Your partner’s friends are all the time dropping by your house for no reason at all.

Why did they unexpectedly disappear like that? What are they hiding from you? Are they afraid of accidentally spilling the bill in front of you?

Or maybe they’re afraid to unexpectedly call you by a different name?

20. Sneaking Tom

Did your partner sneak away (1) in the middle of the night for no reason at all? Don’t wait until he slips away permanently. Always ensure that you are half awake when he’s gone.

Does he come back as if he came out of the shower?

Unless you want to spend the rest of your life watching him sneak out and then waiting for him to return, it is time to end the waiting game.

21. New Gadgets Over Current Gadgets

You know that your partner only needs one phone. But he just bought a new one.

He said it was for business but his job required leaving cell phones in lockers. This is uncommon, obviously, as the only meaning here is him texting and calling someone secretly.

Too bad he showed his gadget. Now you know who is on the other end of the line.

22. Hair Loss Besides His Head

Baldness comes with age and you have fallen in love with the man you were with. Now that she’s in the best times of her life, the need to get a southerly waxing is certain to raise some eyebrows.

Why in the world did he need it? Would she head to the French Riviera to treat her tan?

Of course, this isn’t the answer that pops into your head.

23. Stains and Smell of Clothes

Don’t look for lipstick stains because this is the era of lip gloss.

There are times when you pick up his shirt and an odd smell wafts up your nose that gives you goosebumps – a slight whiff of a lady’s perfume that is not even part of your collection.

Two things can come to your mind: he visited his nephews who came over during their college spring break and played horse with them or he saw a lady their age.

24. Online Purchases Are Expensive

You took off the ring he bought since you found out that his sister is getting married and your future brother-in-law asked you to buy it for him.

He escaped but not today. You find that the credit card bill you both share has lots of online purchases. The product in question was certainly not delivered to you.

This clearly means that they were sent to someone else. It’s time to start exploring the site where the product was purchased.

Don’t faint when you find lube, massage oil, and handcuffs in the process.

25. Erase All Traces

Since when did your partner delete his computer history?

He is hiding now and this is new for you. Before, even his visits to adult sites did not matter to you because he even talked about his “discoveries” with you.

Now, even his e-mail chat thread has been deleted!

Did he do this on purpose?

Remember that there are applications that can restore it. He must be really scared. When you find out what he’s hiding, he will face the trials of his life.

26. Advice Doesn’t Matter To Him

Watching over your partner does not imply you are smothering them with unreasonable attention.

When he starts reacting defensively to the recommendation you are all the time giving him, he may turn down your help and place more value on the recommendation and opinions of others.

Other people may be more important to him now. It is a painful truth to bear but even although the reality hurts it will set you free.

27. Silence Is Not for the Lamb

A man who was once interactive and interesting, you fell in love with him because of those qualities.

The conversation used to be fun for both of you. Now, your home is like a monastery in silence.

Where did her colourful nature go?

Maybe there are problems that he doesn’t want to share with you. Or, maybe something in the relationship is bothering him.

If you cannot talk it through, it is most unlikely you will have the ability to get anything done. Staying in this sort of relationship can make you regret every minute spent together.

28. Travel to the Hospital, excluding the ER

Now that you may have the idea that your partner is doubly so, it can be helpful if you share the same hospital benefits and the same doctors.

If your partner has been complaining of a fever and has been losing weight lately, he isn’t on a weight loss program – he may have contracted a sexually transmitted disease.

He has to be an inpatient for a day or two so the doctors can do some tests.

29. It’s the Weekend. Where Are Your Children?

Waking up to an abandoned home is terrifying only to find out that your partner took them to the mall with their new friend.

Once the children come back, they can tell you bits and pieces. Once you know the gender of the new friend, then you can choose your decision – welcome new friend or welcome updated divorce papers.

30. Your Home Turns Into a Mere Physical Structure

What will occur to your family when the sanctuary called home has been reduced to a dingy physical edifice?

Without the cheerful presence of your kids playing with your partner or other family interaction, an empty house should be a sign that things are heading for a dead end.

31. Unemployed and Vulnerable

When your spouse becomes unemployed (2) and vulnerable and don’t want to do anything about it. Ideally, this is when he needs you the most.

You need to have the ability to support him emotionally if not financially.

If you cannot handle the situation, you will end up hating one another and making nasty accusations.

32. Promises are supposed to be recycled

You need to have the ability to trust your partner’s words. Whatever promises he makes, he must have the ability to keep them. Breaking a promise is the same as lying.

How can you trust that he will do something he promised if he keeps breaking all his other promises?

How can you trust him to stay true to his promise of devoted love if he keeps looking left and right for “fun” on the side?

Anyone who keeps making the same promises and keeps breaking the same promises is not worthy of trust in a relationship.

33. A Very Young Nanny to Take Care of Children

After finding yourself pregnant and forgiving, you search for a nanny to take care of the other kids while you recover in the hospital.

The kids were safe at home and fast asleep, but why was the master’s bedroom filled to capacity?
