Four Signs Your Relationship Will Fail

Posted on February 26, 2015

A new relationship -- whether personal or professional -- is a lot like buying a new car. Driving it off the lot is pure bliss. And like a car, when a relationship breaks down, it's overwhelming. A trained eye knows when a car is in trouble. The same is true of relationships, and you can be your own mechanic.

Dr. John Gottman and his colleagues at the University of Washington discovered four clear indicators of relationship failure, dubbed "The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse." The Four Horsemen are so profound that their presence predicts the demise of a relationship with 93 percent accuracy.

If you find any of the traits applicable to you and/or your partner, it might be time to start working on changing those traits before it ruins your relationship permanently.
