Is your relationship becoming toxic because of your possessive and jealous partner? Possessiveness in a relationship can ruin it up for you. So before you call it quits, here are three ways to deal with this before putting the last nail in the coffin.

You will have to convince your partner that his or her controlling nature is making the relationship very toxic and you need some breathing space. You guys should sit together and discuss about this issue with calmness and ease without anger coming into the picture.
