*takes a deep breath*
Someone is sleeping with other people, lied about being divorced, both of you get into and exacerbate vicious fights where you break up for a week, the spark is gone, you feel they don't really love you anymore, you meet someone else and fall head over heels for them, raising a kid has destroyed your relationship, you're far apart and can't keep up a long distance relationship, one of you is more serious about the relationship than the other, she got pregnant, your personalities clash horribly, one or both of you are extremely over-possessive, past relationships make one of you extremely untrustful of the other, one of you won't put out anymore, one of you forgot to get a birthday/anniversary present, one of you reveals that you have a really
weird kink and the other can't take it, they never call, the other doesn't work and never does any housework, one of you is addicted to videogames/online poker/gambling/porn/etc, they just waltzed off with your TV with no explanation never to talk to you again, they're fat, your parents despise
them, your ex is insane and threatens whoever you date to scare them off, they don't have a romantic bone in their body, you finally realized that they're psychotic, their best friend is an asshole, they snore loud enough to wake the dead, they binge drink, you refuse to commit, one of you refuses to marry ever again, you try an open relationship and everything goes to hell, your child dies and neither of you can pick the pieces of the relationship back up, one of you stops taking your meds and does something stupid, you ruined your partners priceless family heirloom, they where convenient and you don't want convenient anymore, the kids are leaving the nest so there's no reason for us to stay together, you moved in together only to realize you drive each other over the brink into insanity, their shenanigans are fun but start getting tired really fast, they never close their mouths when chewing, they totally lied to you about their job and are actually a hit man, you're different people now and its just time for the two of you to move on, they're actually gay, you reveal you always saw yourself as the opposite gender and want to have a sex change.
That sort of stuff is why people break up.
