If you are asking yourself whether or not you should leave your relationship, that in itself should be a red flag. But breaking up isn’t so simple, especially if you have kids. Asking your friends for advice might leave you even more baffled. So, instead of bending your friends’ ears for advice you probably won’t take anyway, here are some questions to ask yourself if you’re considering breaking up with your partner:

Is he fulfilling your expectations in terms of what you want in a partner?
Do you enjoy the time you spend together?
Is this he dependable and trustworthy?
Do you see yourself happily growing old with him?
Of course, no one is going to fulfill all of your needs and it’s unrealistic to believe the perfect partner even exists. But answering the above questions is a good start. Keep in mind that lust eventually fades away and what is left is love and care—or nothing at all.
