It is possible that things have gotten worse. You are arguing. These arguments might range from being uncomfortable to volatile to violent. Most of the time, the arguments are not resolved. Iinstead, they lead to resentment, silence, blame or abandonment. Understandably. you begin to dread coming home.
The next step in relationship demise might be an affair or betrayal. One of you or both feels lonely, inadequate, unfulfilled in the relationship. As a result, you look towards someone else for the attention or the intimacy that is missing in your relationship.
