If any of the issues mentioned above start to creep into a relationship and aren’t addressed right away, they can create more serious problems. Some of these problems may feel unfixable. In turn, this is why couples need to be on the lookout for potential issues so they can tackle them before they escalate.
Another potential reason for good relationships to fall apart is the fact that people have higher expectations for relationships now than they’ve had in the past.
According to Dr. Gary W. Lewandowski Jr., because relationships are a choice these days, mediocrity isn’t an option. People strive to have the best relationship.
Many people expect the best in relationships and don’t want to settle. In some cases, this may lead to partners being overly picky or critical of each other, even though their relationship is quite good.
