Being in a romantic relationship is a wonderful thing. At this time it seems like all the world is just flowers and rainbows, and it is like time has stopped. It is all pretty until you find that you and your partner are drifting apart.
So what are the things that make partners in a relationships grow apart?
1- Time consuming work is a thing that can make partners grow apart. I am not talking about nine-to-five work (besides, dumping work to spend hours in a relationship is neither healthy nor sane), I am talking about being a workaholic, like after your regular 8 hours job, you continue your work at home online and on phone, neglecting your partner’s needs or existence even.
2- Not balancing your relationship time with time-with-friends. I have heard about a husband who liked his friends and wanted to stay with them for hours and even days at times. This made the wife miserable, and she even doubted his sexual orientation after that. Needless to say, their marriage went to hell. Friends are a great blessing, but staying with them for a long time can destroy much more than a relationship.
3- Time consuming hobbies can make partners grow apart too. This is because a hobby is no longer a hobby, and is just turning into a sort of addiction. If a husband likes fishing, for example, then he will most likely spend about four hours a time. This is great if it is just once a week. But if it is more often, he will not find much time to spend with his wife.
4- Clashing interests can make people grow apart. Naturally, you wouldn’t find a man who likes hunting in a romantic relationship with a woman who is not in favor of killing helpless animals. The problem is if he develops a love for this sport after they have already started dating.
