Reasons : Why Couples Break Up
Break off can be a very painful experience for both the parties involved in the process. Despite the grievances that partners have with each other, the moment of decision that the relationship cannot be continued in future and must be ended can be equally painful to the couple who is at the receiving end and also the one who clearly states the decision to break up.
Break up is mostly the result of piled up grievances that couples have with each other. If grievances and differences they have with each other are not resolved in an amicable and just manner, the discontent, the feeling of injustice keeps simmering and blows up one day leading to heated arguments and a subsequent break off.
One of the reasons for break up may be an overly sensitive and emotional attachment to the partner. Due to excessive attachment, the expectations and reliance on each other for emotional requirements goes overboard causing extreme distress and heart break when the partner does not reciprocate in a similar way.
This can be a very major disappointment causing partners to rethink if they are really that compatible and in love with each other.
Emotions can cloud judgment and decision making. It interferes with rational thinking, blocks practical objective consideration and leads to distorted version of facts. This can be a potent source of misunderstanding between the couple, and even after misunderstandings are sorted the scars may remain. The couple may question their own understanding and acceptance of each other.
Another reason could be possessiveness and the deep rooted sentiments for the partner. In this case the partners expect a lot of initiative from each other, like say calling up regularly, meeting frequently etc. If there is an absence or decline of this initiative due to any reason it causes more pain and aguish than required and couples may doubt that the partner is no longer interested in the relationship. This misinterpretation or discontent may lead the couple to separate ways and create a wedge in the relationship.
Lack of motivation and stimulation in the relationship is another factor. After some time has passed in the relationship, couples may start taking each other for granted, may lose the sensitive touch, the expression of intimacy and love they shared earlier and this also pulls down the interest and enthusiasm in the relationship.
