You are happier when your partner is away.


You enjoy the company of third parties more than your partner's company.


Reduced number of phone calls or e-mails.


Lack of open and honest communication.

  "At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame of their nakedness.  So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves" Gen 3:7


The following may be danger warning signs:


Being secretive.


Checking and tracking.


Controlling behaviour.


Critical attitude.

Spending nights away without bothering to let your partner know (couples).


Selfishness.


Abuse.


Temper outbursts;


  "Do not make friends with a hot-tempered man, do not associate with one easily angered, or you may learn his ways and get yourself ensnared" Prov 22:24-25.


There is little or no sexual relationship (couples).

You feel trapped.


You complain frequently to others about your relationship.

It is better to dissolve a boyfriend-girlfriend relationship than to dissolve a marriage. If you are having difficulties in your marriage, do not look outside your marriage as a place to solve them.  You must look within the marriage and turn to your spouse to find ways to get it better.
