When Should You Break Up?


Learn some warning signs that indicate that you should end a dating relationship.

I felt a tad voyeuristic when I tweeted about a couple who was having a horrible fight at a restaurant. But it did get me thinking about why couples stay together in a dating relationship when they are fighting and tearing each other apart emotionally. Do not, I repeat, do not stay in a dating relationship when there is intense fighting!

You need to break off a dating relationship when any of the following is happening:

  1. Major fighting and belittling each other
  2. Cheating
  3. Pushing or shoving
  4. Moral failures like pornography or lying

I am probably leaving something out, but if any of the above is happening, please break off the relationship. It is not healthy and it will only lead to more pain and misery. Too many people get married when they have no business getting married. It is a gift to end an unhealthy relationship before getting married.
