    First I think dishonesty, then mistrust, obsessiveness, violence and drug/alcohol addiction.  I think those are major problems and deal breakers.

    Theres 3 factors of a relationship:
    without these things everything else falls like a domino effect.

    Dishonesty.  Manipulation.  Bossiness.  Wandering eyes (or worse!).  Jealousy.  Possessiveness.  "I am the MAN of the house and what I say goes!".  "I shouldn't hane to tell you (what I need, what's wrong, how to help around the house, that your long hours -providing for the family!- make me feel lonely and abandoned).  Inequity.  Double standards.  Selfishness.  Condescension.  Unarticulated expectations, wants, desires, needs of ANY kind. ANY LACK OF OR BREAKDOWN IN COMMUNICATION, OR ATTITUDES THAT MAKE IT DIFFICULT...WILL ULTIMATELY DISSOLVE AND ROT THE RELATIONSHIP FROM THE INSIDE OUT!

    Learn how to be less reactive and more responsive. This will give you courage to speak your true heart and mind. Embrace a building tolerance for intimacy. Don't count on your partner to validate you, that's not love.

    Arguing about anything and everything. Not wanting to be a part of a 50/50 relationship.  Lack of trust, twisted truth and phoniness.

    hmm cheating(lies,dishonesty),,because cheating is  not  a mistake its a choice.so better know that the grass is never greener on the other side. try your best to save your relationship because its because of love and trust that you guys were once united.too much freedom also according to me,,because it can be misused.. violence,, lack of communication and compromise.., ego... learn to control ego becoz its better to let go of ego than let go a relationship

    Video Games. No, I'm not joking. A study recently said that 1/5 relationships ended because their boyfriend spent too much time playing video games

    if it is a romantic relationship, I think pornography ruins a relationship.  Also, manipulating and controlling the other person, lieing and holding on to minor offenses.

    Dishonesty, being impatient, and not helpful would ruin it for me.

    Lack of communication & trust as it creates a differences in relationship. Moreover Aggressiveness & too much of possessiveness, Dishonesty, Hiding your secrets, Self Ego, compromise, Violent nature, Anger or short temper attitude  all these will ruin a relationship.

    Lieing about any and everything, cheating, being abusive...any of these things I think could be great deal breaker. A relationship is based on truth, honesty, love and trusting one another. I think if you incorporate these things, you will have a great relationship.

    I think the biggest thing that can ruin a relationship is lack of communication. Not talking and sharing leads to misunderstandings and can also lead to many other problems, some of which are listed below. Examples are dishonesty, infidelity, lack of respect, and many others. Talking and sharing with your partner openly and honestly is the best way to stay connected.

      True, communication is important. Most couples with issues are communicating just fine...both are very clear in what the other is communicating: "I don't want you around me!" Until reactivity is melted, no positive communication can happen.

    Dependency, disloyalty, dishonesty...the list is endless, the most important thing to remember is not to look for your partner to fill the gaps in your life, to make you feel whole....you have to be the whole person before committing to share your life with someone else...it is not about only taking, neither only giving...it is all about sharing:)

    Trust issues, not giving your partner his/her time to themselves and no communication. Avoiding lust, lying, one sided arguing and not listening to your partner should help keep a good standing relationship.

    Distrust and the lack of communication is  what usually ruins relationships.  A partner who ignores the interests of other sand fails to respect the wishes of the other also holds a big responsibility in relationships
