Is it no longer an equitable affair. And I think another sign is when one person seems to be making all of the efforts trying to improve the relationship and the other partner is not investing equally or is at all involved in that."

Again Dr. Abrams say tune into your own instincts.

He also lends a tip or two for a healthy relationship.
