A deal breaker is โ€˜the catchโ€™ that a particular individual cannot overlook and ultimately outweighs any redeeming quality the individual may possess.

The deal breaker was that he was married with kids and I don't condone adultery.

An issue within a relationship that constitutes one partner breaking up with the other. Note that they do not need to be a "good" reason by society's standards, but are specific and individual to each relationship.
I can't believe he broke up with her because she didn't put out after 10 dates. I guess to him, that was a "deal breaker".

Some aspect of a deal you make with another person (could be anything from a job offer to a relationship) that prevents you from being able to do it.

When you're facing a situation where there are catches to something, the deal breaker is that one catch that you cannot overlook and/or tolerate.
After looking at this job offer, I could tolerate the lousy shifts, poor pay and even the job being not that great. Having to put up with a two hour drive two and from work every day? Sorry but that's the deal breaker.

Children. Single folks, you know what I'm talking about.
No, no, you're really sweet, but I didn't know you had six kids. That's a total dealbreaker. Sorry.
