Apparently This Is The Biggest ‘Silent Killer’ For Relationships


Relationships aren’t always as ‘picture perfect’ as you had first imagined; realistically you’ll face many arguments, disagreements and fall-outs with your significant other half.

And now a relationship expert has revealed the biggest threat to any relationship or marriage…

Leading experts have said that unmet expectations is one of the most common things that causes a break-up or divorce. Yikes.

Writer Derek Harvey spoke to Inspire More about how he came across the ‘shocking’ revelation six years ago when he was at a seminar.

“It’s a deadly venom… That wreaks havoc”

He said, “I have seen the pain and frustration that plays out from having unmet expectations, not just in marriage, but in all relationships.

“It’s a deadly venom that flows to the heart and wreaks havoc in relationships.”

The UK Independent also spoke to relationships coach, James Preece who weighed in on the topic.

He said, “People tend to enter marriages or long term relationships expecting the other person will change their ways. 

“They think that over time they’ll be able to mould them into someone else. This only leads to disappointment and anger. It is crucial to accept your partner for who they are and strive to work as a team to overcome the inevitable struggles that all married couples face from sky-high mortgages to eating the last avocado.

“Set goals together and work towards them. Not only is that more fun, but you are much more likely to achieve them when someone is spurring you on.”

It’s no secret that having high expectations can be a bit problematic when it comes to our romantic lives… An open chat can work wonders.
