8 SIGNS to watch out for in a "marriage"

I have put marriage in quotes in the headline because these signs are for those who are wedded with a piece of legal document and those who are wedded in their minds. Holds true for both. These 8 things are more from experience and observation and are by no means exhaustive or universal truths. A marriage is about two people and only the two know what makes it work and what does not.

Having said this, let's take a look at what I think are some of the SIGNS of things going wrong.

1.When the doggie is the only one called by terms of endearment

2.When the only pillow talk, if at all, is a grunted "good night"

3.When the best hug you get is from hugging the living room cushion

4.When every conversation is just a spark for a heated debate.

5.When we stop looking at ourselves critically in the mirror- maybe even stop looking at one at times

6.When we stop praying for each other's wellbeing and for togetherness

7.When the small joys in life like a walk in the park seem to be something of the yesteryears

8.And last but not the least , when we don't look forward to coming home every evening

Am sure there are many more. Helps to read and learn. And not make the same mistakes again.
