3. Paranoid accusations.

It’s fine to raise concerns, but never accuse your partner of something you can’t prove. It simply isn’t healthy.

It sews distrust which, in the end, will kill your relationship. Jealous, distrusting behavior is not normal in a relationship.

4. Lying.

We all tell little white lies, but the big lies aren’t normal. In one study, volunteers were asked to keep track of how often they lied. It shook out to about twice a day.

Often, lying was used to prevent hurt feelings. Lying about big things creates distrust in a relationship though.

5. Talking down.

Your partner should never condescend or demean you with their language. It’s not a normal part of the relationships. It is normal for couples to argue, but those arguments should be civil in nature.
