1. Talk about boundaries -  A toxic partner is someone who makes you feel abandoned, misunderstood, devalued or attacked. On the most basic level, someone who makes you feel worse rather than better over time can become toxic. If your relationship becomes toxic, you must sit down with your spouse and have a hard conversation about your boundaries, which they are not permitted to breach and have been crossing or the vital traits that have been missing in the relationship. (Photo by Toa Heftiba on Unsplash) View Photos in a new improved layout

6. Separate - If nothing happens after that, you should separate because bearing the pain and issues of divorce and losing a loved one is preferable to living a life of hell in which you lose interest, remain stressed and depressed for the rest of your life and your life becomes a meaningless cage of complexities and pain. Let go and distance yourself if nothing works. Our soul is not replaceable. (Photo by Claudio Schwarz on Unsplash) View Photos in a new improved layout
