What I would or would not accept in a future relationship (if something happened to my husband) is totally different from what I would accept in my current relationship. That's because I know my husband would not become physically or mentally abusive. That's just not something he would do. We've been through the addiction stuff and made it through stronger and happier than we were BEFORE having to go through that. It would be a deal breaker if he were to go back to using, but that's not going to happen. I'm glad I didn't write him off for it, though, because he is truly a good person.
However, if I were to meet someone in the future and I could see that person was an addict, I would move on and not waste my time with them. Abuse would be another deal breaker and so would cheating.
1. Dishonesty about anything
2. Moodiness/ Easily Angered
3. Flakiness/ Undependable
pretty much what everyone else has posted!
oh right !! violence too - so I guess three deal breakers for me
Mine are Addiction or any type of violence.
Addiction OR Cheating - either/or - would be deal breakers for me......as in, been there, done that in ny first marriage - I would never again put myself through it.
Refusing treatment for health issues. i.e addiction / mental health /
My list when I was younger was much longer and more detailed!
Cheating/having an affair.
