It's at this point that couples seem to fall out of love.
They start fighting, nagging and nit-picking at the little things and, before they know it, they're contemplating having affairs, moving out and never looking back.
Of course while life manages to get in the way of any relationship, should all this really spell the kiss of death?And how do you know that it's not meant to be, as opposed to one of you just being too darn picky?Which makes it all the more disappointing when things don't work out.Experts will tell you that it all turns to hell in a hand basket at about the seven-year mark of a relationship.Or my recently divorced friend Sarah who is now dating a model 10 years her junior. After being married for seven years, having a child and then feeling lonely, depressed and "trapped" in her marriage, she decided that the thought of being in one relationship for the rest of her life was about as unappealing as a man who can't get it up. While some might agree with her sentiment, others might conclude that her reasoning is simply due to the fact that the man she married just simply wasn't "the one".
When I asked Sarah about the relationship with her first husband, she admitted that, while he was pretty good on paper, there was never any real spark or chemistry.
