When is enough- enough in a relationship? At what point is it time to call it quits?

When is enough- enough in a relationship? At what point is it time to call it quits?

At what point do you take a look at a relationship and realize it is no longer a viable and fulfilling part of your life?

Has it been due to outside or inside influences?
Have both parties changed or just one?
Is it an issue you have avoided acknowledging or a new issue?
Where do you draw the line--for your happiness and future well being?

Unfortunatly I have ignored, denied and blinded by love to see that my relationship should have ended a decade ago, buut now we have kids and thay are the reason I stick with their mother.

Sorry, I did that with my first marriage and am not sure how that worked out for my daughter.

Being trapped in a relationship that maybe should have never lasted as long as it has can be a sad and miserable situation. Getting out can be almost as bad sometimes, especially if there are doubts and others to think of--you are a good and courageous person.

Is it an issue you have ...
Well for me, I'd draw the line and call it quits if something extreme happened, or if my partner was hateful and disrespectful to me on a regular basis. If one or the both of us just did not love each other anymore, betrayal, if one or both were left unsatisfied no matter what.

My partner and I are pretty good together and very happy, thank God. I couldn't imagine us being unhappy with each other and I hope that never happens. But there are times when you're better off to call it quits. If there's a serious problem and the other doesn't make any effort, then they simply don't care and it's over.

As for us, we aren't dealing with the issue of splitting up, but if needed, I think a couple should be able to draw the line when both are unhappy and neither are being satisfied (and I don't mean petty things. I mean true happiness.)

When suicide seems like a viable option.

Although if I paid attention and hadn't been afraid of being alone, it would have been the first year of marriage when it became clear that the marriage was indeed celibate, that he had an Oedipal Complex, and he behaved like a ten-year-old boy most of the time.
