50 Singles Reveal Why They Split Up With The Person They Thought They’d Marry

Love doesn’t always last. Unfortunately, these men and women from Ask Reddit know that firsthand.

1. Completely unable to manage money. Spent every dollar he came across on gaming and constantly put off paying important bills. Would’ve dragged us both into bankruptcy if I would’ve stayed with him.

2. I moved across the world for him. He kept telling me “one day I want to propose.” Or “I can’t wait for you to be my wife.” That proposal never came, and I was having visa issues, so after a few years I gave up and moved back.

3. He was obsessed in making me look/speak better. He would control my food intake and make me exercise everyday. Whenever I was out with him I had to wear heels, dress well, and he would point out what other girls were wearing that I should try on. Putting makeup is a must even when I’m on a plane.

I wasn’t allow to speak other language aside from english and not allowed to watch dramas that were trash to him.

My last straw was him asking me to consider getting a boob job when I lost so much weight from all the exercise/controlled diet. I realized I cannot live this way anymore and he will never be satisfied ever.

Even though I still love him, I was mentally drained and constantly felt that I was ugly and unworthy.
