    It is hard to say this because everyone is different. What you should keep in mind is there is only one of the person your with. Couples need to change and make sacrifices and compromises to stay together.

    It depends what you mean by bad. If its unhealthy for both parties, then I would suggest a break (not a break up) just to give you some time away from each other. The time apart allows each person to think about what they want out of the relationship, how they can make it better, and whether or not you should stay together. Also if you don't plan on ending it, it gives each person time to see how much they really miss the other...

    “Relationship is bad” - but it was not bad at the beginning. So the self judgment is differing with time. Time and place make the thing different. Therefore it is better to wait for self judgment. Adjustment is comparatively a better solution than separation for peace and better future  in everybody’s life.

    The best way to deal with relationship issues is to always sit down and examine the pros and cons of staying or not staying in the relationship. Then, whatever decision  you make will be based on the positives outweighing the negatives. It is always better to communicate directly about each issue and see if there are ways to better the relationship. As someone suggested earlier, taking a break from each other may give you a clear head to think about your future without much attachment.

    As for me, making a decision in these kinds of matters are not for debate. If I'm not treated with respect, dignity and the person makes me feel bad every time I'm around them, then I will end it right there. Life is too short to waste it like that. The more you stay with this kind of relationship, the more you lose the opportunity to meet great people that you want to be around more often.

    The problem with all relationships is that they all start good but with all good things there will be a few bumps down the road. Sometimes more bumps then we really need. If the relationship has lost its touch and love is not so great, then you might need to consider moving on. You cant really save a sinkin ship. if the sparks comeback, then continue working on the relationship making it stronger. If not time apart will tell if its worth it to make it work, or just move on. Best of luck.

    It depends on what you mean is "bad". If it's harming one or the other emotionally or has the potential to be self-destructive then what would be the answer?  It's not hard to figure out, but very difficult to go through with. Emotional ties (for women) are much stronger. Ending a relationship or making the decision to get out of a relationship is one of the hardest things to do. So, wouldn't that mean to "do what feels right in your heart"?  Or do what feels right to protect yourself from harm?
