    Intimacy Just Didn't Feel Right

    From Redditor u/ufloot:

    When the thought of being physically intimate with my partner made me feel sick. after 5 years, a lot of trouble had piled up, unsolved. I remember being intimate and realizing the sounds he made during it were ridiculous and gross (things I found attractive for 5 years, mind you).

    That's when I knew there was no turning back.

    After The Yelling Became Regular

    From Redditor u/walkeronline:

    The defining moment that sticks out in my mind was when I was asked to walk into another room to be yelled at so her kids wouldn't wake up, followed by this sentence:

    "Seriously? You're going to be pissed off I asked you to come in here to yell at you?"

    To be entirely fair, it was over long before that in my mind, but that was the moment of clarity.

    She Realized He Had No Respect For Her

    From Redditor u/SerendipityHappens:

    When my husband of seven years admitted he had slept with another woman.

    I had an inkling, though, when I asked him when he was going to install a clothes dryer a family member had given us. Up to that time, I had to hang my laundry outside to dry. I wasn't great with housekeeping, and it annoyed him because his mom was a neat freak. His response was "probably never." It hit me that he had no respect for me, and that our relationship was in serious trouble.
