    Best answer


    Lack of communication

    Arguing and fighting rather than discussing problems and working together

    Lying, deceit or just not being yourself before marriage

    Not discussing issues such as children, finances, where to live, dreams and goals

    Not discussing expectations of what marriage is to you

    Not discussing what you feel constitutes infidelity and what would be the consequence of infidelity

    Insisting you have the right to do whatever you want without regard for your partner

    Not putting your partner first in all things

    Family interference

    Loss of affection and flirting

    Lack of sex (which usually evolves from the above problems and is rarely a stand-alone problem)

    severe lack of communication. I have found that most women want to talk and 'get it all out on the table' so to speak but men internalise and for whatever reason don't want to speak or acknowledge whats really going on. so we're left with drawing our own conclusions due to silence. And often these conclusions are most hurtful to us therfore most toxic to said relationship. There is some merit to the saying that 'the truth will set you free'. As quoted by a famous doctor 'you can't change what you dont ackowledge'.

    Lack of trust. If you cannot fully trust your partner, and them trust you in return, your relationship will fail. Every time. You can't be in a happy relationship when the other person does not trust you to be faithful.

    Poor or nonexistent communication...most relationship problems (romantic, business, friendships, etc) boil down to that...or it's at least part of where the issues lie...
