- Cultural background
This can be a major cause for break ups. He might not mention it but act on it. In his world, having someone from the same cultural background might allow him to relax and feel comforted within his existing mind sets. The same type of limitation can apply if you are from different countries.
- Family approval
A mother or father who does not approve of the relationship can be a deal breaker. Family pressure can feel very intense for a guy. Sometimes he will let go of the relationship simply to find some peace of mind.
- Friends approval
Same story as family approval. Key friends can have lots of influence on her choices.
- Wealth and social status
Yes! Some men chose a woman according to these reason. If your material base, job or income is not strong enough in his eyes, this can be another deal breaker. Yes! Men will frequently break up over such issue. They might not admit it, because they can feel ashamed of it, but they will give you hints by complaining about your material situation or questioning your life choices.
This is only a sample.
There can of course be many more deal breakers.

The ingredients I mention above like family approval or social status can play a weak or strong role depening on your ex's personality and life choices.
In some cases, they won't influence your relationship.
In others, they will be amongst the key factors strengthening or destroying your partnership depending on how high you score with them.
This is simply the way it works in real life.
