Marriage is a lifelong commitment that you can’t get out of so easily. That’s why you should be sure about the person you’re marrying before you actually make that commitment.
If you notice your man is guilty of the following behaviors, you might want to reassess your relationship. You might want to reevaluate just how much he means to you.
Call him out on his toxic behavior. Design him aware of his terrible habits. And if he shows a willingness to change, then he might actually be worth giving a chance to.
But if he’s going to be defensive about the way that he conducts himself, it might be best for you to just move on.
1. He always breaks his promises and commitments
He doesn’t follow up on the things that he says to you. And that’s a serious problem because if he can’t commit to you on the little things, what makes you think that he’s going to commit to you on the big things?
2. He blatantly disrespects and demeans you
There should be no room for any kind of disrespect in a marriage. When you have a partner who finds it so easy to just demean you and belittle you, then that definitely isn’t a good thing. You don’t want to be attached to the kind of man who is only going to feed into your insecurities and make you feel bad about who you are.
3. He causes you mental and emotional pain
You might think that just because your partner doesn’t lay a hand on you means that he isn’t causing you any pain at all. But that’s wrong. There are sure kinds of pain that transcend the merely physical. And it’s always dangerous whenever you allow yourself to marry a man who causes you mental and emotional anguish.
4. He keeps your relationship from moving on
He is always stagnating your relationship and keeping you guys from taking things to the next level. He doesn’t show a willingness to move forward in the relationship with you. He’s just always content with where the two of you are. But he’s not enthusiastic about where you’re going.
5. He cheats and acts unfaithfully in your relationship
Sometimes, cheating can actually be salvaged. It’s possible for couples to move on from an act of unfaithfulness in the relationship. But a lot of the time, once that trust is actually broken, it can be difficult to recover from it. It would be unlikely for you to be able to allow yourself to trust this person again.
The more you understand yourself, the more silence there is, the healthier you are. —Maxime Lagacé
