There is one main reason for failed relationships—one neglected, yet devastating cause that shipwrecks even those we deem the most “in love.”
For some, it takes a long time before the flame of love flickers out, while for others, the relationship ends in less than a year. Either way, you find the same basic pattern behind it.
Why do relationships fail? Is it because of cheating? That can certainly be a reason, but it’s no where near the most common one. Is it emotional or physical abuse? Again, that sort of thing happens, but abuse is more unique than normal.
No, the most common reason for failed relationships is unresolved disappointment. It’s when simple—and seemingly insignificant—issues are never dealt with over long periods of time. The end result is the relationship ends when hope is gone, and hope is destroyed when one partner has had enough.
It’s not a major event like an affair that is most common in failed relationships. It’s minor issues that go on for years that end relationships. Why do they go on so long?
There’s an expectation that the one we love will behave a certain way towards us. This represents the “hope” that one day our partner will be who we want them to be. We tell them about it, and they promise they’ll change. They never do.
Unfulfilled expectations—fueled by hope—eventually leads to a devastating disappointment that finally destroys hope. When that happens, a switch goes off. It’s over.
Breaks Ups are Everywhere
The divorce rates are skyrocketing, and we all routinely see men and women moving from relationship to relationship. There’s no way this is healthy for our society, and that’s why we need to make every effort we can to resolve these issues between men and women before they destroy our relationships.
This is what I’m covering this week in my new 5-message series, Men, Women & False Expectations, and it all begins with a basic understanding of men and women and the expectations they place upon one another. I feel this series will be helpful to you even if you’re not presently in a relationship. You’ll need these principles before you go into one. Watch Episode 1 below.
