Love is a funny thing. The only constant is its constant evolution; it exists as nothing more than mercurial emotions that must be tended like a fire. In some cases, love grows into an unbreakable bond that makes the word “relationship” seem like an understatement. But most relationships never reach this level of unyielding dedication, and instead burn out like a raging furnace that consumed all its oxygen and died a brutal, fast death. To cut that kind of attrition off at the pass, you need to recognize warning signs in your relationship. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself alone in an empty apartment with a bottle of wine and some Smiths records wondering why you wasted years of your life.

Can you love someone without liking them? This is a question a lot of couples face once they begin the transition from going steady to thinking about the future, and in many cases, it’s something that doesn’t even come up until after the wedding vows have been exchanged. If you’re looking for signs your spouse doesn't like you, the unfortunate truths on this list might offer some help. What you do after you’ve decided your significant other doesn’t like you any more, even though they love you, is up to you. There’s always the possibility of fixing things, the likelihood of which depends on how broken your relationship is.
