There is a tendency for relationship to end. There are many reason behind it. The bottom line is when two persons no longer understand each other...they break up. What are the reasons why relationships end? :)

In my experience would have to be forgetfulness and selfishness. My husband for 3 years in a row forgot the wedding anniversary yesterday. I am completely devastated. My marriage to him is important. I went out the day before and bought a card. It was ready for him when he says happy wedding anniversary but he never said anything. So after he went to bed, I put the card on his chair. This morning he came sooking up to me to say he was sorry. First time, I feel is acceptable. 2nd time, I would think he would learn from it. 3rd time, does he really thing that the marriage is really important to him. If he forgets another time, I am so seriously thinking about where is my marriage heading which you will see as well in the next part. My husband was a loving caring man. He loved his kids from a previous relationships and he wanted to keep in touch of where they were. It was that I fell in love with. He would help me so much around the house and lately. He doesn't do anything except for cook when he is not working and mow the lawns. He likes to drink so he leave his cans and bottles over the house. He likes watching tv but only watches what he wants to watch. If I am interested in something, he will change the channel on me. He is just becoming more and more lazy. He won't even speak to our own kids because our kids just ignore him. He always tells me, tell those kids to get off to bed. I am no longer happy. I do love him, but I am nolong IN love with him. He is a different type of man now and I do dislike the man he is turning into.

The thing is, I have tried and tried talking but again to the selfishness side of him, he doesn't listen. When I get more financially stable enough, I am going to look at my life and see where I am going to head. I would rather it with him but if he keeps it up, it may be without him. It is now that I sound selfish but I have to do what I feel is right for me and my happiness.

Misunderstanding is one of the reason why relationships ends. It can cause arguments that somehow gives a stain in a relationship. Somehow through misinterpretation they can do things against each other and hurt their feelings. Next was the pride.They dont like to admit ones mistake which then turns to lost of trust.Until the issue become very big. Then turns to giving up. Or breaking up. It really hurt so much so now if you have a misunderstanding better to fix it before its too late.

There are many reasons why relationship did not push though, like miss communications, incompatibility, culture, likes and dislikes, works and many others. Yes you are right if they don't understand with each other it will go through break up.

Hi. I believe there are a lot of reasons why do people decide to end their relationships. The bottom line, however, is that one of the parties or both wanted "to free" oneself or the other from the relationship.

I think there are all sorts of reasons why relationships end. Sometimes there is cheating involved and sometimes it is just that the two involved have grown apart. People change over the years. I think in a relationship you have to work to change and grow together or you change and grow apart. Marriage is constant work. If you want to make it the long haul you have to always be putting the effort in.

For me the reasons why some relationships end its because there is something wrong with their attitude like lack of trust, sweetness or any negative attitude. But for some, they end relationship with their partner because they don't want their partner anymore or they met someone better than them. When they met someone better than their partner, they would do things that could end their relationship like changing their attitude towards their partner and anything or sometimes they would start a fight with just a simple matter so that it would end up into fighting then break up. Then that's it. :)

yes, there is a tendency for a relationship to end. There are so many reasons why it happen even for those who are married for years. When love is no longer present in the relationship, they no longer understands each other, when pride eats them up, when one party finds another man/woman, and distance keeps them apart.these are only some of the reasons that brings a relationship to an end.I guess to keep a relationship is to have LOVE and TRUST. Temptation is always present in every relationship.......
