Are Robins (the bird) attacked by many other birds?

I've had this 1 Robin coming to my yard for years. I've also noticed that there is another single Robin that goes to my neighbors yard. I heard they mate for life and like to stay together as couples. 

When I see this Robin, I feel bad that it's always alone

    Robins (males) are very territorial and will only usually come together during the mating season.

    A robin's lifespan is just 13 months on average due to high mortality among robins in their first year. Once they've passed that barrier, they stand a much better chance of surviving for quite a while – the record currently stands at 19 years. No, robins do not mate for life. Pairs usually remain together during an entire breeding season, which can involve two or three nestings.
