    What are your top 5 reasons that a relationship does not work?

    Does it just not work out?  Is there a science to relationships?  Are there really rules to a relathionship?

    There shouldn't be rules to any relationship, what fails in relationships, communication, lack of trust, love, respect, and honesty. If couples don't have much in common in some cases this can also be the issue.  Sometimes  one of the couples or both just can't live with each other.  Loneliness is another problem. One of the partners spend too much time alone.  Not appreciating one another is another problem.

    1. Misunderstanding
    2. Unwillingness to understand the other part
    3. Third party interference
    4. Low on faith and trust and high on Ego
    5. Not ready to compromise and come at the same level

    I believe this says it all. Most problems can be put under any one of the above shown category.

    1. Financial issues
    2. Personal problem
    3. Unfaithfulness
    4. Lack of time together
    5. Distance

    These are my choice, its not in the proper order, i guess the one that would be on top is UNFAITHFULNESS. Harmony will be in a relationship once both parties are faithful to one another.

    I only have one main reason why a relationship does not work out. (Selecting the wrong mate!)
    Each of us gets to (choose) our own friends, lovers, and spouse. Our lives are for the most part the result of the decisions and choices we have made.
    Very few choices rise to the level of importance as selecting one's life partner, and yet many of us never take the time to do the necessary introspective thinking needed to determine what it is we want and need from a mate or potential spouse.
    If you are with the "right person" then you share the same values, have the same goals for the relationship, have (mutual feelings) for one another, care whether or not each other is happy, sexually compatible, and meet each other's expectations.
    The reasons why people select the wrong mate are numerous. Sometimes they just want to be (with) someone/anyone. They haven't determined who they are and therefore do not know what it is they want and need in a mate. They thought that given time they'd be able to "change" him or her into the person they (really) wanted. They became "emotionally invested" before their mate revealed their "authentic self". In other instances they've created their "shopping list" for a mate but threw it out the window becasuse they felt he or she was soooooo HOT!
    Selecting the (wrong) mate for one's self is and always has been the prime reason why a relationship fails. One man's opinion! :-)
