Looking back at the first few weeks of courtship, you can often see there were warning signs of trouble down the road–signs you ignored because you were basting in the warm glow of new love. I dated one girl who had a habit of talking about herself in third person. As in, “Kaye Washington doesn’t take orders from anyone.” Another early warning sign was that when I said, “Girl, you so crazy,” she glared at me and responded, “NEVER call me crazy.” In retrospect perhaps it is unsurprising that our relationship encountered more than a few bumps…after we got married.

Were there warning signs that your relationship would be rocky? Or perhaps you have a friend who ignored red flags to their later regret. What are some early warning signs that Mr. or Miss Right is really Mr. or Miss Wrong? Leave your reply below.
