Although one would think that maintaining and having respect in a relationship would be a no brainer, sometimes this is not the case.

Lack Of Trust: A lack of trust may stem from prior childhood experiences. Such as post traumatic stress, being abused in the past, cheated on, or suffering from family issues such as a parent walking out. When athe relationship lacks trust, it allows things to development like harmful thoughts, actions, or emotions, such as negative attributions, suspicion, and jealousy. Over time, this can lead to bigger problems, such as emotional or physical abuse.

For example, pregancny often changes sexual desire for a woman and sometimes for the partner, An accident or life threatening disease can also change things. But it's how you handle the situation and lack of desire for your parnter because noone like to feel unwanted or undesirable. That can bring about a form of resentment and definitely an argument or worst case scenario it can even spark abuse.

If this becomes the case, someone isn't interested in the relationship anymore, even if you they once were.

You're not a priority: Putting your partner first means his or her needs, feelings, and wellbeing take priority over other people or things. Making your partner a priority means their emotional needs are as important as your own. When someone starts to feel unimportant problems arise.

Visions of the future not including your spouse: When you begin to dislike your partner your union is headed for failure. There's a difference between needing space and not wanting to spend time with your partner. you start to do things separately to avoid them.
