If you’ve got to the point where you and your partner are constantly fighting and about to give up then you know you have to work quickly to save the relationship. Regardless of whose fault things are, you both need to be pulling in the same direction to make things work. Here are some useful tips to help you save your relationship.

is this relationship worth putting effort in to save? Relationships are not all about love. Being truthful and how suited you are to each other are also big considerations. Has your boyfriend ever cheated on you? Are you and your partner that different that you can’t do much if anything together that makes you happy? If you were both apart do you believe that your lives would be much better? All these questions are very important in any relationship. A relationship, in truth, requires more than just love to make things work. By taking a risk and sorting out the problems together you should continue to put in maximum effort into making things work. If you both are in agreement that breaking up is the best thing for both of you, then just accept this will happen and get on with the next stage of your life.
