Do you think many Relationships fail because couples do not pay enough respect to the 'small things'?

Sometimes, yeah. People get comfortable in a relationship and they forget to do the little cute things that show they care and warm their partner’s heart. Romance can die that way.1
I think the idea here isn't so much *trivial* small things as it is taking the relationship for granted? It may start by looking superficial--forgetting to call back when you said you would, spacing out during convos, etc--but it could escalate if it persists into an overall apathy into making the relationship "work". Because as fun and loving as relationships are, you gotta show up for them the same way you choose to show up for work and apply yourself.
I do think there's a difference in neglecting the small things and coming out of the honeymoon phase though... the latter is natural and to be expected. The former is unchecked laziness/obliviousness at best, or apathy at worst.0
I don't know they fail bc they fail1

I think so many relationships fail because people expect a good relationship to be a free picnic in the park with ice cream and balloons. The first time they encounter a problem, they interpret that as a sign that the relationship is a failure. They don't realize that relationships require effort and attention and perseverance.1

yes. i think people often overlook small matters that's can build up to bigger issues.1
I think there's a lot to that, yes.
Yes because those small things can add up and balance out the major selling points.1
Sometimes I think that being able to see beyond "small things" and look at the bigger picture is more useful and is very helpful, especially in abusive relationships.1
No It's the fighting, lack of compassion, communication, and misunderstanding.2
My marriage has weathered the bigger challenges better then the small annoyances. The little things make all the difference.1
Yes. Details are most important1
O I'm sure that has some effect I wouldn't say it constitutes most breakups but I'm sure it has an effect.0
Part of it. Another part is rushing everything and getting married too soon.0

Sometimes minor things create probs0

No relationships don't last anymore because there is no reason for people to fight for them anymore.
In the past women would fight to keep a relationship because if they left they would have to struggle, nowadays if a female leaves a man she can take everything he owns with her, so leaving isn't something that scares women anymore.
Most guys don't end the relationship unless there is other pussy already in the wing.1
