1. Talking trash behind each other's backs. Speaking in a mean-spirited way about your partner when he's not around. Fixating on what your hubs doesn't do well
2. Negatively comparing your spouse to others.
3. Never putting yourself in your partner's shoes.
4. Starting fights with your (figurative) fists up.
5. Not knowing when to press pause on a fight.
6. Always putting on a good face.
7. Not fighting at all.
8. Waiting too long to deal with your issues.
As usual with listing like this, several other things that will end a marriage weren’t listed. In the public interest I list them here:
1. Discovering that you have sister-wives when you return from the honeymoon.
2. Finding out about the dozen biological children you weren’t told about.
3. Not finalizing the previous two divorces.
4. Listening to your spouse talk to an AK-47 while cleaning it.
5. Secretly making bombs as a hobby and then trying to teach your spouse how to drive a truck.
6. Stopping to pick up a road kill for dinner.
7. Buying gallons of antifreeze even though you don’t own a car.
8. Not telling your spouse the balcony on your high-rise apartment has been removed.
9. Not changing your status on Facebook from “Looking for a Relationship” to “Married.”
10. Showing more interest in your new 16-year-old step-child than your spouse.
Of course, these aren’t from personal experience, at least not all of them. Perhaps you can think of more? Let me know.
