If you can see your partnership slipping away right in front of you then it is time to take urgent action. By not doing anything you are pretty much accepting the fact that your relationship is over and if you do not want this to happen, there are three simple steps that you should put into practice.
First of all, communication is the key. If you are not happy about something or many things within the relationship, the only way that you can change them is if you sit down with your parent and talk to them. If you find that this always makes way for a fight, write down everything that you are feeling and give it to your partner in letter form. Not saying anything is the worst thing that you can do.
Secondary to communicating, you should ensure that you are giving into the relationship what you expect out of it. If you are never cleaning the home, never cooking dinner, never making the first move in bed then how can you expect your partner to do them? A relationship is a 50/50 affair and if you don’t put anything in, you can’t really expect the other party to do everything.
Last but certainly not least, don’t name call during fights. One of these days you are going to say something in a fight that is going to be so hurtful that the other person is not going to be able to forgive or forget it. Just think for a moment how you would feel if someone were to say those words to you. Would you be able to deal with them and still continue with the relationship?
