7 Words You Should Never Say to Your Partner to Maintain Your Relationship

No matter what happened between you and your partner, there is a limit to what you can say to him or her. Even if you're furious, stay away from these words and phrases. Apart from the fact that they can harm your partner’s feelings, they can affect your relationship. 

1. Divorce 

When you say this word, especially in anger, it's like ringing a bell that you can't un-ring. Tossing out the word divorce is like to tossing down the third rail. It's best if you don't touch it. If you don't mean it, don't say it. It's also not a good idea to utilize it to catch your partner's attention.

2. Shut Up 

When a spouse is irritated or annoyed, shut up tends to come out in the middle of an argument. Shut up, on the other hand, is a really confrontational statement. Telling your partner to please remain quiet can convey the same message in a less harsh approach.

3. You Are Not My Mother 

This is a popular phrase used when a partner appears to be overly caring, overprotective, or domineering. Your partner, on the other hand, does not want to be compared to your parents. Their sentiments will almost certainly be wounded, even if they have the best of intentions. Instead of making them feel like they're getting on too strong, consider letting them know what you prefer they don't do before allowing those words come out.

4. You Are Such a Fool

A personal insult of any form is an act of emotional harm. Belittling is particularly damaging, so avoid using terms like "you are such an idiot" or "you really had no idea what you're doing." Angry remarks like that can create tension in the near term, but they can also damage the bond you've worked so hard to establish, making it more difficult to reconnect later.

5. You Are Pathetic 

When you're not happy with your partner's actions, you should never label him or her. When we label someone, they immediately become defensive. Instead, focus on making observations about your partner's actions. You're starting a conversation about how they can change what they're doing this way.

6. You Are An Absolute Failure 

It's as though hearing these words imprints failure on your soul. Even if they were said in a fit of rage, you can't take them back. They'll linger, causing a self-fulfilling prophecy to emerge.

7. I Wish I Was Still With My Ex OR I Wish I Never Got Involved With You 

It's about the worst thing you can do to bring up a previous partner or relationship. Your partner would always believe it, even if it's not true.
