5 relationship breakers

12 August 2015, 16:42 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - Boundaries and respect are sort of interchangeable when it comes to relationships. The following are some of the things you might overlook that can damage your relationships.


If you are married or dating someone you already knew was a clown or not very honest then, I cannot tell you what to do because when you are checking that phone you already know what you are going to find.

On the other hand, if your partner has never given you reason to distrust them then do not go through their phone. They will find out and it will not be a positive reaction when they do. They will now also not trust you and without trust then your relationship is already not working.


Someone’s family is always a no-no especially if they never invited you to comment. If they did not, have never or even looked like they were asking what you think then they do not want your opinion. Family is very sensitive. You might think that you are allowed but you are not because you do not know the relationship or how they interact with their family. Not respecting that boundary can cause tension for you in your relationship. Just from a slight comment.

Someone’s work, Office or Business

It is so embarrassing at times when you are having a meeting and your partner ‘was in the neighborhood’ and they had to say hi. You saw them in the morning and they have to say hi. Make them wait and it is a grievance. So you are called out of the office, they make demands such as lunch and just throw you off balance. Learn to respect someone’s work. It might be small to you but they wake up every morning to go to it-it is important to them! It might also be the only space you allow them. Checking up on them there is not cool at all. Unless you are married to a joker, then hats off to you on the more work you gave yourself.

Personal/ Private space

If you have never been given reason to doubt your partner, take your hand out of the cookie jar. You know what they say, ‘when you go looking for something, you will find something!’ At times it is just better to be ignorant because you find something, not that they are cheating but maybe a mistake they are trying to solve. You know about it, now you have questions and now you are stressed.

Private is private for a reason. You do not have to know what your partner is doing 24/7. Look at it as having some mystery in your relationship.

Their property

Don’t trash anything. Don’t use a pen on their desk, spoil it and just laugh it off because it is just a pen. It was their pen, not your pen. Don’t break their stuff and be unapologetic because you are angry. It was their money that they used to buy it. It may also be sentimental to them. If you have to break something, choose some plate you can replace or a window that you can afford to have remade. Just respect your partner’s property.
