    Whats the #1 killer of a happy relationship?

    I am going with immorality, why? Healthy relationships are founded on honesty. Without honesty there is no trust and without trust there is no commitment. Without commitment the relationship is merely an experiment doomed to fail. Your partner should never intentionally do anything to hurt you. It’s also important that you have the same understanding of what is allowed within your relationship and share the same boundaries.

    Once trust is eroded through lies, infidelity and other forms or immorality, it’s very hard to get back. Immorality is probably the most flagrant violation of the most important rule of human relations – if you can no longer depend on your partner to treat you right all hope is lost. The mistake is seeing immorality as a symptom of other more deep-seated problems. It is not a symptom; it is a core cause of relationship failures.

    Utter disrespect is the number 1 destroying factor regarding happy relationships.  So many people who are ensconced in their relationships begin to take each other for granted.  They cease to be exciting to each other.  They also stop treating each other as special.  They start to treat each other in the third person.  They cease the art of appreciation, start to take each other for granted, even start to exploit each other because after all, that is what their significant other is there for.   

    Their disrespect not only applies to their actions but in their speech.  They talk to each other in ways that can be classified as verbally abusive.  They feel that they can speak to each other that way because they feel that they somehow have ownership over the other partner.  They furthermore feel that since they are in a committal relationship, they are comfortable enough to do as they please.  In essence, they can really let go and be as tactless as they please.

    An unhappy/dissatisfied person is the #1 killer a "happy relationship".
    At some point the person who is unhappy with the way things are "changes". Gradually they stop doing many of the things that won their mate's heart. In other instances they look outside o the relationship. When we {change} our circumstances change.
    It's almost a cliché to hear someone say:
    "He/she is not the same person I fell in love with."
