We all need to have an idea of the goals that we want to set. 

This rule applies to relationships with your friends, your children and especially, your spouse.

A successful relationship requires that you build a strong financial future together, remain in-sync raising your children, and stay focused on keeping your romantic relationship alive — which all require significantly more time and effort than most people imagine.

But sometimes no matter how dedicated or committed you are to making a relationship work, sometimes your relationship just doesn’t get better.

That’s when we have to ask ourselves a really important question: should we stay the course and double down on our commitment — or do we cut our losses and move on? The answer is not always obvious.

But knowing when to leave a relationship is necessary if you plan to have a long and happy life.

If you’ve ever felt torn between whether you should commit to or quit your relationship or marriage, this episode is for you.

In this episode, you’ll get three awesome suggestions that ensure you get more of what you want.

What’s more, these same three questions are crucial to ask before you file for divorce or legal separation from your significant other. Write them down now and save your future self untold amounts of time, money, and heartache.
