How Did The Dream Fell Apart?

There are many reasons a marriage can start to turn sour. The range of reasons could be relatively small and temporary to something that is soul-crushing and permanent. It could start with a small upset of emotions. One partner is working longer hours than the other one is and is not home as often as the one or both parties would like. On the other hand, it could be that both parties are working different shifts with different days off leaving little time for quality time together. This could be due to financial problems and the stresses that come with it. This can last for a short while or it may not. Another reason and a major killer of many relationships are one or both parties’ cheating. This mistrust and hurt can be either healed with time or this will be forever stuck in the back of the mind of the person who was cheated on. Everyone who has been, is presently, or will be getting married soon has at least one bad relationship story that they remember well. What many turn a blind eye to their actions that added fuel to that bad relationship fire. While others simply just fall in love because they are addicted to love and do not bother to take the time to get to know the person they are married.
