The warning signs your relationships is about to break

The 2012 Statistics SA report shows that 161,112 marriages took place in SA and about 22,000 of those marriages ended in divorce.

Dr Helgo Schomer looks at some of the most common reasons that lead break-ups in relationships and how to avoid them.

  • Finding it hard to say I’m sorry
  • Not being able to tell your partner ‘I love you’
  • If you can’t tell your partner your needs in a sweet way
  • If you can’t keep away from temptation
  • A partner not contributing to your growth

Listen to the full conversation below:

If you can’t make compromises anymore, you are in trouble

If you don’t care if your partner is having an affair, it’s finished

Dr Helgo Schomer, resident psychologist

The very first step is to admit that you are in trouble. Get your partner to work on it together. It doesn’t work if only one of you is trying to make a change and make it work.
