Can no longer send long text messages to an android device

In the last month, whenever I send a relatively long text message to a non iPhone user (Galaxy s5), that person will not receive the message at all. On my screen it says that the message was sent, but they are not receiving it. I used to never have this problem before. After a while, I went into my settings and put on the character count option to see if it would help me.  I realized all my messages over 160 characters would not be received, and all messages with an emoji that have over 70 characters would not be received. This is really frustrating and I would love if someone could help me see why this is and if there's any way to fixing it.

This is really strange behavior, Edgar08. I want to make sure those messages reach their destination. Have you noticed if this is affecting a specific contact or multiple contacts? What iOS is your phone on? Settings>General>About>Version.
