    Some relationships end before they are started,and the parties involved often wonder what went wrong.

      I'd have to suspect the biggest problem is communication.

    I think that the biggest mistake is that some couples start taking each other for granted.  They forget that respect for one another goes a long way in a successful relationship. Treat your partner as you want to be treated. 

    It really can be as simple as that--I know it is in my marriage.  smile

    On a serious note, a lack of respect can lead to all sorts of behavior that can end a relationship pretty quick.

    I think people forget to act like they are in a relationship; that's when the problem starts.

    Once I read the quote: "Do not be into a relationship if you are going to act single"

    I think the biggest problem is not accepting people for who they are. Attempting to force them to maintain the illusion that first attracted one to the other. You have to admit, we're all on our best behavior at the beginning; but  the inability to recognize and embrace the peculiarities of an individual stands in the way of deepening a relationship.

      Trying to change the other person is usually a big mistake.
