unhappy couples staying together

It’s sad but you see it all the time: couples who are clearly unhappy together, but just won’t call it quits. Their friends see all the signs. I know a few couples who shock me with the way they speak to each other. You really wouldn’t know that these two people claim to love each other based on the way they talk to each other. In fact, you would think they hate each other. It’s such a shame because, you only get one romantic relationship in your life at a time (well, unless you’re polyamorous) so to settle for a bad one is a waste. Ideally, none of your relationships—from friendships to family ones—are combative. But at least you have plenty of friends and family members to go to when that one certain one is driving you nuts. You only get your one significant other. Shouldn’t it be a great one? You’d think so but, here are reasons unhappy couples stay together.

They live together

Simply living together is a reason miserable couples stay together. They don’t want to deal with the hassle of packing boxes, breaking the lease, and finding a new place to live. Being content in one’s habitation is one reason unhappy pairs don’t split up.
