The following are a few signs that indicate your relationship is at risk:
- Starting to criticise, attack and comment on each other’s personality during petty arguments rather than trying to resolve the issue.
- Not taking a forgive-and-forget approach to conflict and beginning to feel contempt for one another.
- Becoming defensive and not willing to hear anything your partner has to say for fear of being hurt or attacked.
- Avoiding, ignoring or becoming distanced from your partner.
