Apollo Nida is heading to jail for the second time around, which begs the question, should Phaedra be thinking about divorce? Some think so because there are some relationships you just can’t make work. Like these

Mr. Sleeps Around

You can’t trust him. He’s tampering with your self esteem. STDs. The example you’re setting for your kids. The list of reasons to go just keeps going on.

Mr. Jail Bird

We all make mistakes. But should you tether yourself to a man who’s decision making skills are this bad? A repeat offender may be taking you down a road of jail visits, collect calls and other indignities you can do without.

Mr. Won’t Work

It’s not just that your life could be better with two paychecks. It’s that he’s willing to sit on his behind while he watches you struggle.

Mr. Last Season

Two years ago, he fit like a glove. But your life has moved on to bigger and better things. And if he’s holding you back it might be time to leave him behind.

Mr. Violence

This is a hard no with an unhappy ending. Having a hard time getting out? There are plenty of counseling programs and helping hands willing to help you get to safety.

Mr. Bully

Not all abusive men put their hands on people. If he’s always trying to cut you down to his level, it may be time to cut him loose before he succeeds.

Mr. Jealousy

Jealousy feels like it’s about you, but it’s really about him. He’s insecure and controlling and no amount of reassurance from you can make that go away.

Mr. Liar

He says he’s changed. But how will you know if it’s true?

Mr. Rebound

If he’s still holding on to his ex, there’s just no room for you.

Mr. “Females”

“Females are scandalous, emotional, can’t be trusted, don’t understand and are always trying to lock a brother down.” You’re an exception to the rule now, but if he has no love for women in general one day he’ll sweep you under his stereotypes too.

Mr. Mama’s Boy

Three’s a crowd. And when one of you has to go, it’s unlikely to be her.

Mr. Baller

He’s the breadwinner and he’s not about to let you forget it. A man who holds his paycheck over your head thinks you’re bought and paid for. Unless you are, it’s time to move on.

Mr. Me, Me, Me

When you’re dating a narcissist, there’s just no room for you.

Mr. Resentment

You just got a raise? “It’s just a few more dollars an hour.” Going back to school? He can’t understand why you’re wasting your time. Some men just can’t handle successful women. Time to find one who can.

Mr. Not Enough

Sometimes you just need more. Love yourself enough to look until you find it.
