    distance
    - physical - no sex / bad sex, don't live near, little touch, sex with others
    - emotional - not sharing time, values, selfishness, different priorities
    both lead to jealousy and insecurity in a lot of cases

    Cheating
    Mental or physical abuse
    Outgrown each other in terms of interests and views and just not being on the same page any more
    Develop feelings for someone else
    Lose all love for their partner
    Distance
    Outside pressure such as from parents if the couple is young
    Addiction problems
    Health problem - not everyone can deal with being with someone who is chronically ill

    Sometimes the relationship wasn't right in the first place

    People undergo the 'halo effect' and disregard consciously or subconsciously large negative personality traits that directly oppose theirs. (because the aesthetic appeal of the body/face overrides the other aspects)

    As the halo effect wears off in the relationship ( as you see their face/body everyday) personality comes to the fore and the little things become big problems

    And thats why personality is more important in the long run!

    All sorts of different reasons. Pretty much impossible to list them all as people all have different experiences.

    Me and my boyfriend are currently both in the middle of exam season and we also live a couple of hours apart, so its made it very difficult since we haven't/won't get to see each other for a couple of months. I have definitely noticed some strain on our relationship but its mainly due to stress and we've worked through it before so we can again I would say distance is a big contributing factor to breaking up, just because online communication isn't anywhere near as fulfilling as the real thing. You just have to get through it though, the difference between failed LDRs and successful ones is a mutual love and trust in one another. We are apart a lot, but we both know we'll get to see one another eventually and that makes it all worthwhile!

    I probably should've added that reasons aside from cheating.

    You were either never comparable at the beginning or passion burns out because one person is more serious than the other about commitment.
