10 of the Most Unhealthy Relationship Practices
2. You actually don’t love each other but you’ve confused love for something else. This one’s tough if you don’t figure it out until it’s too late. There are a thousand things that aren’t love that feel a whole hell of a lot like it. The way you differentiate, unfortunately, usually isn’t very pleasant. It’s usually when one of you knows that you don’t want to be with your partner but you stick around anyway: for security, not wanting to be lonely, whatever the reason. When you stay for any reason that isn’t love and/or dedication to your love even in the rough times, you’ve confused something else for love.
3. When one (or both) partners has feelings for someone else and isn’t truthful with themselves and/or their partner. If there are other avenues to explore, that desire will never cease until you do so.
4. When a partner berates or scolds the other in public. You are not parenting a child. You are equals and deserve to be treated as such. Joking around is one thing, but actually reprimanding your partner in public is usually not okay.
