However, love is not enough to maintain the relationship. Here are situations that are an indicator that you should terminate it:
When you have different life plans

When there is too much emotional baggage
We all have the past, and sometimes it is not so pretty. Sometimes, a person has so much baggage from past relationships that we just cannot deal with his inner demons.

Maybe he/she is aware of it but just cannot help him/herself. Yes, the past affects us, and it’s hard to get over some things, but you need to find a way to overcome and deal with it.

When you were hurt too many times
When someone betrays you emotional or hurt you more than once, you should know when it’s enough. No love can maintain a relationship in which there are too many harms. Do not act the martyr, do not tolerate something that does not suit you. You deserve better than that.
When you have outgrown him/her
If you feel like a grown person who has the responsibilities and obligations, and he/she still behaves like a wanton child, your relationship will likely come to an end.

When you need more from him/her
Are you in a long-term relationship? Are you ready for the next step, but your partner is afraid of binding? If you are in this situation, and you need more than what your partner gives you, maybe it’s time to break up. Maybe he/she will realize how much you mean to your partner when he/she lose you, and maybe it will not. In any case, you’re better alone than to wait for him to decide what he wants more or not.
When you have a turbulent common past
If you and your partner went through thick and thin together, then love may not be enough for your relationship survive. Lies, deceits, cover-up, are not things over which can easily be exceeded, no matter how hard you try to save the relationship. Love is not always sufficient to erase the things that happened, as much as you want and you were trying.
