Could it possibly be

My Prefix returns us to the dark ages.

The acronym AD, perhaps?

My Infix belongs to someone.

It belongs to HER.

My Suffix has annoyed me since birth.

Nobody likes paying RENT!

  • $\begingroup$ @Cashbee wouldn’t that really annoy you if you did though? Although on a more serious note, technically by doing chores, etc...? I couldn’t find a suffix that fit the prefix and infix haha. $\endgroup$ – El-Guest Sep 11 '18 at 10:53

Partial answer:

Prefix-

Ether , since there is a knowledge tag, i am going to guess it to be the reality stone from marvel movies, in thor2 it was about to be used to bring back the dark ages.

Infix-

Her, belongs to her.

Suffix-

not sure yet.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ I'm afraid neither of those are correct, but the knowledge tag does apply to the Prefix. It's a real world thing, not fictional, but good try! :) $\endgroup$ – AHKieran Sep 11 '18 at 8:23

It is:

Stonyhearted

Prefix:

Stony: Covered with or full of small pieces of rock
Brings us to stone age, somewhat dark age in human history

Infix:

Heart: Belongs to someone

Suffix:

Ted: turn over and spread out (grass, hay, or straw) to dry or for bedding.
Improper tedding can be annoying.
