Signs of a toxic relationship.

There Is Constant Dismissiveness or Belittling 

Demeaning language. Harsh words. Insults. Screaming. Such behaviors are a tell-tale sign of a toxic relationship or marriage. They have no place in a healthy relationship and should not happen at all, let alone done in front of other people. If a person constantly humiliates their partner in front of other people, especially other family members, it will target them as an object of derision and someone who isn’t to be respected. That image will wreak havoc on their confidence and security. 

One Person Asserts Total Dominance Over Finances

It’s not uncommon for one partner to have more control over financial affairs in a marriage, especially if the other partner isn’t as good with money. However, this can take on a much more unhealthy sheen when one partner openly refuses the other to be involved in financial matters or goes so far as to control what they spend or how much they can have at any given time. In a healthy relationship, partners are aware of spending and have a measure of financial freedom.

Feeling drained. 

If, instead of feeling happy and productive, you're always mentally, emotionally, and even physically drained, it's time to re-evaluate.

Lack of trust. 

A relationship without trust is like a car without gas: You can stay in it all you want, but it won't go anywhere.

Lack of communication.

Without communication, there is no relationship. Period.

Filled with criticism.

A nonstop barrage of criticism never helped anyone improve; it's not about making things better but boosting the critic's ego.
