Even the best of relationships run into problems sometimes. You’re both tired from work, or the kids are in trouble at school, or your in-laws are getting on your last nerve…you know how it goes.

Life throws all kinds of challenges at a relationship, from relocation to redundancy to illness. No wonder problems arise in even the strongest relationships.

To keep a relationship running smoothly, it is important to solve marriage problems before they snowball into bigger relationship problems.

When do relationships start to have common relationship problems?

For some, however, that phase of love eventually fades. As time passes and both parties of the relationship make their fair share of mistakes, what was once intoxicating becomes intolerable.

Much of the common relationship issues that couples face are minor and can easily be avoided with mutual effort, understanding and respect. Although bumps along the path of marriage are unavoidable, if you are aware of them beforehand, you will be able to overcome them without leading your relationship to the verge of collapse.

None of us are perfect, nor will we exactly be the same on every level.

Some character flaws, on the other hand, will be natural and acceptable. But if there are behaviors, perhaps a little lie here or an indiscretion there, it’s essential to consider that on a grander scale as the relationship progresses.

Is that an ongoing problem you want to work through continually, or does that constitute a deal-breaker? Something to consider.

10 causes of common relationship issues

What can destroy a relationship ? Many of the problems couples come to me for, seem to stem from issues that either cause or intensify their problems. But once couples learn how to address these two issues, everything else seems to start falling into place also.

Check out these causes of common relationship issues or issues behind relationship problems before understanding ways to solve common relationship problems:


One of the fastest ways to create unhappiness and instability in a relationship is through disappointment. And very few things create disappointment as quickly as unmet expectations.

But, there are typically two common relationship problems with expectations in a relationship:

  • unrealistic expectations
  • unclear expectations

Oftentimes, couples struggle to meet each other’s expectations because they are simply unrealistic. It’s important to understand that our expectations often derive from other people, past experiences, beliefs, or internal values. But, that doesn’t change the fact that they are sometimes very toxic to our relationship. 

Alternatively, couples sometimes struggle to meet each other’s expectations because they simply don’t know what the other one expects from them or in their relationship. 

Now, maybe you are pretty certain about what YOU expect from your relationship and your partner, but that doesn’t mean that your partner can read your mind, which means they most likely have no clue what you expect. 

If you want to avoid unhappiness in your relationship, it is your responsibility to be very clear about your expectations and share those with your partner. 

If in doing so, you come to realize that some of your expectations might be slightly unrealistic, or even impossible to meet, you might want to review where that expectation comes from and what is more important – being unrealistic or being happy.

2. Communication

One of the most common relationship issues that couples face is communication. There is often either a complete absence of communication, constant miscommunication , or very poor communication. The end result is almost always frustration, unhappiness, and unmet needs. Many times the root cause of the communication issue is in “interpretation.” 

You misunderstand what the other person is saying and spend too much time and energy arguing a point your partner never intended. It’s a futile exercise. It is, therefore, essential to take the time to fully comprehend what your partner is trying to say. 

Also, if you’re the one talking, it’s important to make sure you’re communicating clearly and exactly what you mean so that your partner can understand. You need to recognize the fact that their perspective is not the same as yours.

Their experiences, points of view, and even baggage are not the same as yours. But good communication demands empathy. It’s to see the world through their eyes as much as possible and then treat them the way that you would treat yourself.

3. Unsupportive partner

Another common relationship problem occurs when a partner is unsupportive of goals and interests. When you are in a relationship, you want to treat your partner like they can be whatever they want to be. 

You want them to follow their dreams and will do anything you can to help support them along the way – and you expect the same in return!

4. Finances

One of the most common relationship problems couples will admit to are troubles in the relationship with finances. Not having enough money or not knowing how to split your financial burdens , as well as loss of jobs, a lack of money, poor money management, debt, and overspending are all common issues that can put pressure on relationships.

Discuss your finances when your relationship gets serious, and be honest about any debt you may have. Rely on one another if money gets tight and never stop communicating.

5. Cheating and other forms of infidelity

Cheating is a huge issue in relationships today. The internet has made all forms of cheating as simple as downloading an app. Sexting, emotional affairs , porn, sneaking around, and physical relationships with someone other than your romantic partner are all huge issues that damage relationships, sometimes irreversibly.

Infidelity is a hard subject to broach with your romantic partner, but it is in the best interest of your relationship to let your partner know when you are emotionally or physically checking out. You owe it to yourself to give your relationship another shot. Get your issues out in the open either with date nights or regular honest communication or seek couples counseling to help mend your relationship.

6. Not enough time spent alone

Some of the common relationship problems involve not spending enough time alone together. This is especially true for couples who have children. Between work and family obligations, you sometimes feel more like roommates than romantic partners . This is because you have stopped ‘dating’ one another. Such circumstances can make a romantic partner feel unappreciated, unattractive, and emotionally frustrated.

Call up your favorite babysitter and establish a child-free date night once a week with your spouse. This allows you to reconnect as a couple instead of as parents. Go on dates and treat one another like you’re still trying to woo each other.

Boredom is a common problem in long-term relationships. Being with the same person for many years can seem to take the ‘spark’ out of your union. You may also feel you have outgrown one another. Don’t despair or give up. 

You can reverse this feeling by looking for new ways to connect with your partner. Look for new things to do together such as travel or take up a hobby. This will help you bond over something fun and exciting.

8. Sexual intimacy

As the years go by and your relationship becomes seasoned, there will likely be a point where your sexual flame will dim. There could be a multitude of reasons as to why you or your partners in sex has dwindled, but no matter what the cause is, this decrease in sexual intimacy tends to cause common relationship issues.

In order to avoid such problems, there are a few important things that you should consider:

  • As you spend more and more time with someone, the act of sex becomes predictable. In most cases, the more predictable the sex, the less fun it is to have. Think about your favorite movie for a second. When you first saw it, you were enthralled. You watched it over and over again, enjoying every viewing. 

But after 10, 20, or 30 times seeing the same plotline play out, you only pulled it out for special occasions. Your sex life is just like that favorite movie. So, spice things up . Your favorite movie’s plotline is set in stone. The plotline between you and your spouse’s sexual experience can be changed any time you want it to. 

Get creative, get ambitious, and understand that it’s not the other person’s fault. It’s just that, although you enjoy having sex, it’s just the same thing over and over again. Try something new today.

  • Your expectations for your sex life may be a bit unrealistic. As your sex life loses steam, you likely are replacing more love and appreciation in the void left behind. Instead of harping on the lack of sex you’re having , take a moment and be grateful for the person you get to lay your head down next to.

9. The anger habit

The anger habit soon gets ingrained, and before you know it, you’re spending a large chunk of time fighting with your partner.

Think about it – if someone is angry and shouting at you, how likely are you to listen carefully and look for a solution?

Most people, understandably, react to anger with either anger or fear.

10. Not consulting each other

Let your partner know that they are a priority to you by consulting them before you make decisions.

Big decisions like whether to take a new job or move to a new city are obvious life choices that should be discussed with your spouse.

But don’t forget to include them in smaller decisions such as who picks up the kids tonight, making plans with friends for the weekend, or whether you eat dinner together or grab something for yourself.

10 signs of relationship problems that hurt the most

All relationships have their highs and lows, even the happiest of ones. There is no escaping them, and if not dealt with accurately, they can lead your relationships towards absolute chaos and destruction.

Here are 10 signs your relationship is having problems:

  • You both spend less amount of time together
  • There is minimal communication
  • You both are critical of each other
  • One partner indicates that the relationship is not going well
  • Differences of opinions are criticized than worked upon
  • You both are always defensive in front of each other
  • You both have stopped discussing long-term plans
  • You set other priorities over your relationship
  • Maintaining the relationship feels like a duty
  • You are happier when they are not around and vice versa

30 relationship problems and solutions

Now, how to solve relationship issues?  

Common relationship issues are not hard to solve; all you need for that is a strong will to work on your relationship issues, and love , of course.

Here are some common marriage problems and the solutions for how to resolve your relationship problems that you should know about.

When wondering about how to solve relationship problems, it can be useful to read first and then bring the conversation up about how to handle relationship problems with your partner.

1. Lack of trust

Lack of trust is a major problem in any relationship.

Lack of trust isn’t always related to infidelity – it can rear its head any time. If you find yourself constantly doubting your partner or wondering if they’re truthful with you, it’s time to tackle your trust issues together .

Relationship problems will keep mushrooming when there is a dearth of trust in a relationship.

Solution : 

Be consistent and trustworthy. Each of you should make an effort to be where you say you’re going to be and do what you say you’re going to do. This is one of the best solutions to marriage problems.

Call when you say you’ll call. Never lie to your partner. Showing empathy and respect for your partner’s feelings also helps to build trust.

2. Overwhelm

When life gets too much, you get overwhelmed. Maybe you’re in the midst of going after a promotion at work. Maybe they’re dealing with a troubled teenage son or daughter.

Whatever the reason, your relationship soon takes a back seat. Then relationship problems keep building up.


Talk to each other about what’s happening, and about what kind of support each of you needs .   Lean on each other instead of getting so caught up in other issues that they drive a wedge between you. 

Figure out together a time that will be just for you two.

3. Poor communication

Poor communication leads to misunderstandings, fights, and frustration. It also leads to one or both of you feeling unheard and invalidated and can quickly build into resentment and other common relationship issues.

Communication is a skill like any other, and learning it can make all the difference to your relationship. Learn how to listen without judging or interrupting, and how to get your point across without attacking.

Communicate with each other as friends, not combatants. Figure out what your communication style is and how compatible it is with your partner.

Work your way towards the solution by understanding what communication style would work better for both of you.

Also watch:

4. Not prioritizing each other

It’s so easy to take your partner for granted , especially when you have a lot of things going on. Before you know it, the only time you get together is over a hurried family dinner or while trying to get out the door in the morning.

Make time for each other every single day. No matter how busy you are, carve out fifteen or thirty minutes; that’s just for the two of you to talk and spend quiet time together.

Text regularly throughout the day. Add in a weekly date night to make sure your partner knows they’re your priority.

5. Money stress

Money is a leading cause of stress in relationships .  Maybe there’s not enough. Or maybe there is enough, but they spend it while you prefer to save. Perhaps you feel they’re too tight with the purse strings.

Whatever the issue, money can quickly cause problems.

One of the tips to fix old relationship issues regarding finances is to put those good communication skills to work here and have a serious talk about money. Figure out a budget that you both agree on and stick to it.

Work out a financial plan for your future and take steps towards it together. Make crystal clear agreements and keep them.

6. Changing priorities

We all change as we move through life. Maybe you were both ambitious once, but now you’d rather live a quiet life. Perhaps your partner is no longer enthusiastic about your shared dream of buying a house by the sea.

Changing priorities can cause a lot of conflicts.

Look for what you both still have in common while allowing your partner to change and grow. Embrace who they are now instead of pining for the past.

If you have different priorities about major lifestyle issues, l ook for common ground, and compromise that you are both happy with.

7. Chore wars

It’s easy to lose your temper when it feels like you’re the one taking out the trash for the hundredth time in a row, or you get home from overtime to find the house is a tip. Chore wars are a leading cause of conflict in relationships .

Agree together on who is responsible for what, and stick to it—factor in a little flexibility for when one of you is much busier than usual.

If you both have different ideas of what constitutes a neat home, it might be time for a little compromise.

8. Different intimacy needs

Problems with your sex life are stressful and can have a big impact on your relationship. If one of you isn’t happy or you’re finding you have widely different intimacy needs, it’s time for a serious talk.

Carve out time for intimacy. Arrange for someone else to take the kids once a week, or make the most of any time you have alone at home together.

Sex keeps you feeling physically and emotionally close, so make sure you are both happy with your sex life .

9. Lack of appreciation

It doesn’t come as a surprise to you that bad bosses compel good workers to quit ? Up to 75% quit their job not because of the position itself, but because of their boss who never expressed appreciation.

Being taken for granted is one of the fundamental reasons for breakups.

Appreciation is what keeps us motivated and committed, both in our work and our relationships.

Remembering to compliment or notice the things our partner shows, we are grateful and increases the overall satisfaction with the relationship. Saying thank you goes a long way.

10. Children

Having kids is a blessing, but it requires a lot of dedication and effort. This can cause a strain on the relationship when partners disagree on the way they want to raise children, address problems that occur, and spend family time.


Talk to your partner about why they think something should be done differently and share your reasoning. Often, we are repeating or trying to avoid patterns we were raised by.

Get together and spend some time understanding where the need to do things a certain way is coming from. When you understand, you can change and create a new way to parent that works for your family.

11. Overinvolvement

When we find the person, we love we want to share everything with them and to have them do the same. However, this can lead to feelings of losing one’s individuality, feeling of freedom, and a sense of accomplishment.

What does it take for you to be your own person while being their partner? Think of areas that you want to keep to yourself that give you a feeling of achievement and freedom.

It might be a hobby or doing sports. Talk to your partner so they don’t feel rejected by this new change and introduce it gradually.

12. Infidelity

What each of us defines as infidelity and where we draw the line can differ. Infidelity means various things to different people. Infidelity can encompass, besides the sexual act, flirting, sexting or kissing.

When infidelity has occurred, trust is broken, and a person can feel betrayed. This can snowball into many other issues and problems.

Talking about what infidelity is for you and your partner is important. They may hurt you inadvertently because, for example, they don’t find flirting a problem.

When something has already occurred, there is a choice to be made. A couple can try to regain trust and rebuild or end the relationship . In case the first one is chosen, seeking professional help can be a wise decision.

Figuring out marriage challenges and solutions and learning how to work out relationship problems is much more productive with counseling .

13. Significant differences

When there is a critical difference in core values, the way partners approach life, and challenges, issues are bound to happen.

For example, it might be that they are more spontaneous or hedonistic, while you plan more and save rather than spend. Nonetheless, if your views and expectations from life differ considerably, you are bound to argue.

When there are core dissimilarities between you, you might wonder if you are suited for each other. The answer is – it depends. What kind of change would you both need to undertake for this relationship to survive?

Are you willing you make that change, and how much will it “cost” you? If you decide you can and want to change, by all means, give it a go. This is the only way you will know if the change is enough for this relationship to succeed.

14. Jealousy

You might be in a happy relationship for a long time before noticing the first signs of jealousy. They might act fine at first but slowly change.

They start asking for your whereabouts, distrusting you, checking up on you, distancing or stifling you, and demonstrating concern about your affection towards them.

Often this behavior is a reflection of previous experiences that were triggered by something that happened in the current relationship.

Both partners need to make an effort. If your partner is jealous, try to be transparent, predictable, honest, and share. Give them time to get to know you and trust you.

However, for this to be solved, they need to make a separate effort to change their anticipations and work out their concerns. There is a difference between privacy and secrecy, and this line needs to be redrawn.

15. Unrealistic expectations

If you are human, you have unrealistic expectations ; no one is free of them. Nowadays, we might expect our partner to play many major roles: the best friend, trusted companion, business partner, lover, etc.

We might expect our partner to know what we want without saying it, advocate fairness at all times, or strive to change the other into what you desire them to be.

This can lead to misunderstandings, repeated quarrels, and misfortune.

If you want to solve a problem, you need to comprehend it first. Ask yourself – what is it that you feel entitled to? If you could wave a magic wand and change things, how would the new, pink reality look like?

What are you doing at the moment that you feel could get you there?

When you grasp what you are expecting to happen, but reality and your partner are depriving you of it, you can start to look for ways to ask differently or ask for different wishes.

16. Growing apart

So many things on the task list, and there is only one of you. How long ago did you stop including things to do with your partner on that list? Drifting apart happens bit by bit, and we don’t notice.

You might wake up one morning and realize you can’t remember the last time you had sex, a date, or a conversation that is more than organizational.

A relationship is like a flower, and it can not blossom without nourishment. When you notice the signs, it is time to act. It will take time to cross the distance that has been created, but it is possible.

Prioritize your time together, bring back old habits and activities you did together, laugh, and take time to reconnect.

17. Lack of support

When life hits us hard, we cope with it the best we know. However, often our coping skills are not enough, and we need support. Lack of support from a partner can lead to feelings of loneliness, anxiety, and feeling overwhelmed.

Long-lasting lack of support also affects the way we value the relationship we are in, and satisfaction drops significantly.

If you don’t ask, the answer is certainly “no.” Talking about what we need and what we can provide can clear the air of unrealistic expectations.

Unspoken and unfulfilled needs lead to negative beliefs about the relationship.

Understanding what our partner can provide helps adjust what we come to them for and look for alternative sources of support while our partner works on becoming one of the main pillars of encouragement and comfort again.

18. Addiction

Substance addiction can put a serious strain on a relationship.

Partner’s addiction can cause a significant effect on the family budget, cause many arguments, increase trust issues, cause ignorance and neglect of children and other family members, and impair overall relationship happiness.

Couple problems can be worked out with couples therapy . Counseling can be enormously helpful as it helps both partners deal with the issues arising simultaneously.

Understanding what triggers prompt addiction and building new habits as a couple promotes healthier ways of addressing problems. Individual therapy is recommended as well for both partners.

It can help understand the roots and patterns leading to addiction, and provide support to the non-addicted partner.

19. Moving at different speeds

Do you find yourself in a current relationship uncomfortable with the speed the relationship is progressing?

You might find your new partner moving more rapidly, wanting to spend more time together, constantly calling or texting, wanting to go away together, or you meeting their family?

Alternatively, you could be in a relationship that is not progressing the way you hoped it would, and the milestones you desired are not being reached.

When you and your partner need different speeds and intensities of intimacy and commitment , you may argue.

This can lead to becoming terribly upset over seemingly little things, pulling away, and questioning whether this person is for you.

Don’t sweep things under the rug rather address what is happening. Avoiding problems is not the best relationship solution.

What kind of reassurance or demonstration of love would bring you back on the same level? How are your needs different, and what can each of you do to find the middle ground?

20. Lack of responsibility

When one of the partners avoids taking responsibility, it can cause severe damage to the partnership. Money struggles, child neglect, fighting over chores, or playing the blame game can happen daily.

One of the most detrimental factors to the relationship is a significantly uneven distribution of responsibility amongst partners.

When addressing this issue, the first thing to do is to stop the blaming game. If change is to occur, you need to look forward, not backward. If the change is to be long-lasting, it needs to happen gradually.

Overwhelming a partner to make up for all this time of dodging responsibilities will just prove they were right to steer clear of them.

Give forgiving a shot as it has been linked to relationship success . Also, agree on the pace of change and the first things to share accountability for.

21. Controlling behavior

Controlling behavior happens when one of the partners expects the other to behave in certain ways, even at the expense of the wellbeing of the other partner.

This kind of toxic behavior deprives the other partner’s freedom, confidence, and a sense of self-worth.

Controlling behavior is a learned pattern of behavior from primary family or previous relationships.

At one point in life, this was beneficial for the controlling partner, and they need to learn to express affection differently. Speak up, set boundaries and adhere to them, and, if possible, try couples counseling.

22. Boredom

All relationships undergo periods of fun and boredom. However, when the feeling of monotony and apathy color, most of the days, it is time to react.

Allowing to fall into a daily routine and go with the flow can lead to decreased libido and overall satisfaction with the relationship .

Think back to the honeymoon phase and recall the things you did as a newly formed couple. What is available from that list today, and what do you still feel you could enjoy?

Make a conscious decision to add spontaneity into the relationship to start the upward spiral to a more eventful relationship.

23. Outside Influences

All couples are exposed to outside influences and opinions on how things should be done.

Some influences are benign, like grandparents’ occasional babysitting, while others can be detrimental, like disapproval of one spouse by the family or friends of the other.

Your relationship comes first, and everyone else’s opinion is secondary. Show each other support and that you are a united front against the world.

To resist the influence, you can limit the amount of time spent with or personal information you share with the family members or friends trying to impact you.

Marital problems and solutions may appear quite similar on the outside, but no one knows better than you what you need to make it work.

24. Ineffective argument

Arguments are a part of every relationship. However, the way fights are led, and what is their outcome can have a big impact on the relationship.

Disagreement can be helpful or destructive, depending on what you do with them. Having the same fight over and over, losing your temper, or saying things you regret later is bound to make you feel it’s not worth it.

After an argument, you should feel you have made progress in understanding where your partner is coming from.

A good fight is one after which you have agreed on what can be the first step both will take to resolve the issue. Start by listening to hear the other side, not only by waiting for your turn.

Research together ways to fight better and only ever focus on the next step needed to take.

25. Keeping a scoreboard

When you keep blaming and recalling mistakes each of you has made, you are keeping a virtual scoreboard of each other’s faults. If being right is more important than being with the other person, the relationship is doomed.

This leads up to a build-up of guilt, anger, and bitterness and doesn’t solve any problems.

Deal with each problem separately unless they are legitimately connected. Focus on the problem at hand and speak your mind. Don’t let it build up and mention it months later.

Decide if you want to save the relationship and if you do, learn to accept the past as is and start focusing on where to go from here.

26. Life gets in the way

In a relationship, it’s usually the priority to nurture and develop the connection. When life is a persistent inconvenience, it means one or both of you were not necessarily ready to get involved, and that can happen. 

Unexpected encounters with another person occur all the time. But when they do, it’s essential to allow it to flourish- placing it first over the chaos.

When the two of you notice you put the union on the back burner, it’s time to make a conscious effort with reprioritizing the other person regardless of your day-to-day situation to battle the new relationship struggles.

27. Trust is critical from the very beginning

Every relationship has problems, but when you first connect, you don’t want to go in with the idea that you can’t trust the other person. If this is baggage from a past relationship , that’s unfair and self-defeating for any new partnership. 

If your new partner made a promise and then lied to get out of it, that will create mistrust early on. That’s tough to get back. In an effort to do so, one piece of advice on relationship problems is that there needs to be much transparency and commitment in keeping your word moving forward.

28. You can readjust goals at a moment’s notice

Perhaps in the first few weeks of dating, your life goals appear to be similar, but a profound life circumstance changes your perspective on where you see yourself in the future or maybe your mate’s.

The change is not in keeping with what the two of you discussed. In this situation, you can find a way to get your partner to see things from your point of view, or the partnership won’t be possible.

These are the kinds of issues in relationships that are difficult to overcome. Often differences in life goals are deal-breakers.

29. A kind word here or there

New relationship problems can include a lack of manners in numerous ways. Pleasantries like telling someone they look nice or saying thank you, or expressing how much you appreciate something they’ve done wane after a few dates. 

It shouldn’t—unfortunately, comfortability and taking a partner for granted set in quickly. If you notice this early on, say something, but also make sure to lead by example. Be the first to tell your mate these things often.

30. Notice continued bad behaviors with a new relationship

You’ll know you have early relationship problems if your mate is continuously on their phone when you’re together. That’s incredibly rude behavior for anyone when they’re with other people for any reason, let alone being on a date or in the early stages of a partnership . 

The focus should be on time spent with each other since free time is precious with the world’s hectic pace. When this happens at the start of a partnership, it won’t get better with time. It needs to be addressed and stopped to strengthen your union ultimately.

Relationships are marathons

Most relationship problems and ways of fixing relationship problems would be something that you must have heard about or experienced; still, when it comes to utilizing this common knowledge, not everyone is thorough with the implementation.

It’s not difficult to answer “how to solve marriage problems,” and there is plenty of advice on relationship issues and solutions.

However, when it comes to solving marriage issues and relationship issues advice, everything boils down to effort and implementation.

These common problems in relationships are not completely avoidable, and every couple runs into some of them at one point.

The good news is, working on relationship problems can produce a considerable difference and get your relationship back on track, free from all relationship difficulties.

Be creative, don’t give up on each other, and you will reach the solution.

Money Problems

Childcare issues, daily stress, busy schedules, poor communication, harmful behaviors.

Marriage can offer wonderful benefits for well-being, life satisfaction, and stress management , but no relationship is without its challenges. The common problems of marriage can put a strain on a couple, but there's a choice in how to handle these issues.

The following are some of the most common sources of marital stress and marriage problems, as well as insights on how to address them.

Disagreements about money are one of the most common marriage problems couples face. Almost a third of adults with partners in the United States reported money as a source of conflict in their relationships.

The following may become money problems in a marriage:

  • Disagreements over financial decisions (i.e., investments, household spending, etc.)
  • Having different beliefs about money (how much to spend vs. save)
  • Not talking about finances before getting married
  • One person in the marriage makes more money
  • One person in the marriage spends more money

Generally speaking, when couples engage in conflicts about money, their dispute is really symbolic of something different—such as power struggles, or different values and needs.

When one partner is extremely stressed about money , they may be less patient or more irritable; they may then pick fights with the other partner about unrelated things without even realizing it.

Finding a Solution

Try having an honest conversation with your partner. What are each of your expectations when it comes to spending and saving every month? Remember, it's about reaching a compromise (within your financial means) so that both of you feel comfortable, but not restricted.

Try dividing the labor. Maybe one partner focuses on household spending and the other on saving money one month, and the next month, you switch.

You can even make it more fun by having a monthly "money date" where you pay bills and set up budgets. Remember to budget regular date nights with each other, too—that can help make the financial conversations lighter and less stressful.

Having children can be a wonderful experience that brings with it feelings of well-being and purpose. However, it can also be challenging and may put extra strain on a marriage .

Some marriage problems that can arise after having children include:

  • Couples have less time (and less energy) to spend with each other
  • Each parent has less alone time to de-stress or engage in self-care
  • Financial strain as a result of supporting a child
  • If one parent feels they're doing more of "the work," they may become resentful of their spouse
  • Lack of support from family and friends

Though it may take time to adjust, especially for first-time parents, try to develop a support network. This may include family and friends, or if you're financially able, a babysitter who can watch your child for an evening.

Even if it's just for a couple of hours, try to take a break from your roles as "parents" to remember your roles as "spouses." This will give you time to reconnect with each other.

While many parents make their child's happiness a priority, it's important to keep in mind that happiness between parents and in the home plays a significant role in the development of a child's personality, intelligence, creativity, and emotional health.

In other words, happier parents often equals happier kids.

Delegating household tasks is important as well. You and your spouse can come up with a schedule where you both take on a fair amount of childcare duties, so they don't all fall on one parent.

Daily stressors don’t need to become marriage problems, but sometimes, they do.

We all deal with annoyances like getting stuck in traffic, being late to work, or getting nervous about a big deadline coming up. But in a marriage, these stressors can create a "spillover" effect, especially if one person comes home after a hard day and projects onto their partner, perhaps getting angry or being impatient.

When one partner has had a stressful day, they may have less emotional energy to devote to nurturing their relationship . When both partners have had a difficult day, this, of course, is only exacerbated.

As with financial stress, general daily stress can test patience and optimism, leaving couples with less energy to give to one another.

Does your partner come home and vent about their problems—but that makes you feel stressed, too? Or do they shut down completely and emotionally withdraw?

This is all about knowing and respecting boundaries. Maybe you both set a rule that venting can only last 10 minutes so that it doesn't increase the stress levels at home. Or, maybe you learn to respect each other's alone time when either of you needs a chance to cool off.

It's important that both of you have your own ways of de-stressing so you can bring your best selves to the relationship.

Marriage problems can result from overly busy schedules for a few reasons:

  • Couples who are busy are often stressed, especially if they’re not taking care of themselves with quality sleep and good nutrition .
  • Busy couples may feel less connected because they have less time to spend together and more separateness in their lives.
  • Couples may not work together as a team and might find themselves fighting over who’s taking care of which household and social responsibilities.

While busy schedules don’t automatically lead to marriage problems, they do present a challenge that needs to be worked through.

Research shows that quality time often improves the well-being of a relationship. Regular activities—like watching a favorite TV show together or going out to dinner—can make you feel more bonded to one another.

It's also helpful to try new things together. Sabrina Romanoff, PsyD, a member of the Verywell Mind Review Board, says, "Embarking in novel experiences has many positive effects. The excitement causes us to rate the experience more favorably. You can also displace the familiar and worn-out roles you occupy with your partner."

Dr. Romanoff also recommends exercising together, if possible. She says, "The rise in endorphin levels after exercise creates neural pathways that link these behaviors with positive emotions and each other."

Sabrina Romanoff, PsyD

By exercising together, you can discover unforeseen strengths in each other, which can lead to a newfound appreciation of your partner.

Perhaps the biggest predictor of marriage problems is poor communication  or negative communication that belies damaging attitudes and dynamics within the relationship.

So, how do you improve communication in your marriage? Try out the following:

  • Make small talk : Simply asking, "How are you?" or "How was your day?" can be a friendly reminder that you both care about and support each other.
  • Show signs of affection : Try exploring each other's love languages . Maybe you show your partner affection by giving them hugs regularly or buying them a small gift on occasion to show you're thinking about them.
  • Use the speaker-listener technique : This method has one person speak at a time, and the other listen. The listener must engage in active listening, repeating back what they've heard.
  • Use "I" statements : You might say, "I feel sad when we don't spend time together," instead of, "You never spend time with me." This technique may help remove the blame and defensiveness from a conversation and, instead, shift the focus to feelings.

Some marriage problems could be solved if each partner pays more attention to their unproductive habits and works toward changing them.

People don't always make a conscious decision to argue over petty things, nag and be critical, or leave messes for the other to clean, for example. They get busy, stress builds, and they go on autopilot. Then, they find themselves following the same patterns they hadn't realized they were choosing in the first place.

Some habits you or your partner might've developed that actually take a toll on the relationship could be:

Changing Yourself to Please Your Partner

Of course, if your partner encourages you to quit smoking or take advantage of new opportunities, change can be good. But if you feel like you have to be an entirely different person for your partner, chances are you need to reevaluate the relationship.

Dr. Romanoff weighs in: "Making personal changes should always be a net positive. This means changes in one aspect of the self or relationship should ultimately create more positive collectively in the relationship and for each person."

You should never change yourself in ways that are hurting you or exclusively for the happiness of your partner because this isn't sustainable. Either the change can't be maintained or you will become so resentful that it will manifest in additional problems.

Disrespecting Your Partner

Married couples often get in the habit of nagging, criticizing, or even name-calling or yelling at each other. If this is the case, it's time to set boundaries regarding how you communicate with each other.

Neglecting Your Own Life

Being in a marriage sometimes means we get complacent—but you should still be able to have your own sense of self—hobbies, friends, and routines—that will bring joy to your own life and allow you to be an even better partner.

"We need a little healthy insecurity in our relationships to revitalize them. That comes from investing in situations and experiences outside of your relationship. Cultivate your own passions, and bring that energy back into your relationship," says Dr. Romanoff.

Projecting Your Emotions

Your partner shouldn't be your punching bag. Though we might get used to yelling at them when we're angry about something else entirely, behavior like this is often a sign we need to work on our own emotional regulation and develop healthy outlets instead.

Seeking Constant Reassurance

Though it's OK to want reassurance from your partner from time to time, constantly needing them to tell you they love you or that you are great at your job could be a sign that you should address the deeper insecurities within yourself.

Snooping on Your Partner

Trust is one of the most important parts of marriage. Your marriage may have underlying problems if you find that you're checking your partner's texts or emails. If you are suspicious that they're cheating, for instance, it's best to address this directly with your partner or in therapy.

A Word From Verywell

Fortunately, many marriage problems can be worked on—even if only one partner is consciously trying to change, any change can bring a shift in the dynamic of the relationship, which can bring positive results.

However, some relationship problems are more complex. For instance, it may help to address issues like substance use, loss of trust, violence, or simply growing apart in couples therapy or marriage counseling .

A therapist can help you and your partner navigate these problems; therapy can also help you decide whether or not to end a problematic relationship. Either way, the help of a mental health professional can give you the emotional support you need.

How to Solve Relationship Problems

Relationships may develop problems for a variety of reasons, but poor communication is often the reason why some people have a hard time solving these problems. If you are in a relationship that has hit a rough patch, then you may benefit from improving the communication between your partner and yourself. You can also learn how to deal with problems as they arise in order to move past arguments and toward solutions. After things have gotten better, there are things that you can do to ensure that your relationship continues to thrive and grow.

Step 1 Schedule time to just talk.

  • For example, you could set aside 15 minutes per morning to sit and tell each other about your plans for the day. Or, you could give your partner a call on his or her lunch break to check in and see how your partner’s day is going.
  • Scheduling time to talk about relationship problems can be useful as well. By setting a time limit for discussing your problem, you may reduce some of the tension in your relationship and get closer to a solution. For example, you could decide to discuss a specific problem from 7-8pm.
  • Keep these conversations as light as possible and avoid discussing anything that might upset your partner during this time. The goal is to get a rapport going again. Of course, if your partner is having a bad day or is feeling stressed about something, listen and be supportive and encouraging.

Step 2 Discuss problems in a public place.

  • Make eye contact with your partner when he or she is talking. Do not look away, look at your phone, or anywhere else when your partner is talking to you. Give your partner your full attention.
  • Nod your head and indicate your interest with neutral statements, such as “yes,” “I see,” and “go on.”
  • Rephrase what your partner has just said to make sure that you have understood him or her.

Step 4 Stick to “I” statements.

  • For example, instead of saying, “You never make the bed in the morning,” say, “I would really appreciate it if you could make the bed if you get up after I do.”

Step 5 Express your appreciation for each other.

  • For example, if your partner often loads the dishwasher after dinner and tidies up the kitchen, let him or her know that you value these activities. Say something like, “I just want to say thank you for keeping our kitchen so clean and nice. I appreciate that so much.”

Step 6 Think before you speak.

  • For example, instead of calling your partner a mean name or insulting him or her in some other way, identify what you want him or her to do.

Step 7 Allow your partner to finish speaking before you respond.

  • For example, you might say something like, “I am sorry for not calling you to tell you that I was going to be late. I will try to be more thoughtful in the future.”

Step 1 Identify the problem.

  • For example, you may feel that your partner is not helping out around the house as much as he or she should be, and your partner may feel like you are too demanding. Take some time to think about what is bothering you and have your partner do the same.

Step 2 Express your needs.

  • For example, you might say, “I have been feeling overwhelmed by the housework and I could use some more help from you.” Your partner might say something like, “I have been feeling overwhelmed as well because of my work schedule and I feel like you don’t appreciate how hard I work.”

Step 3 Acknowledge your partner’s feelings.

  • For example, you might say something like, “Okay, I hear what you are saying. I did not realize that you felt that way.”
  • Do not get defensive even if your partner responds to you with a defensive claim, such as “You are always nagging me and you never appreciate how hard I work.” Acknowledge your partner’s feelings and move on.

Step 4 Make a plan with your partner.

  • For example, if your partner has been feeling unappreciated, then you can promise to acknowledge his or her efforts more often. You might also make it a rule that you will not ask you partner to do anything until he or she has had a chance to unwind a bit. Your partner might then promise you that he or she will be more consistent with certain household chores.

Step 5 Keep your promises.

  • For example, if you promised to take out the garbage every night after dinner, make sure that you do so. Otherwise, your partner may start to feel resentful and begin lapsing on his or her promises as well.

Step 6 Be prepared to repeat these steps.

  • You don’t need to go far to get away. Try visiting a nearby city for a couple of nights. Go out to a nice dinner, see a play, or visit some museums together.

Step 3 Hold hands, hug, and kiss.

  • For example, you can hold your partner’s hand while watching a movie, give your partner a kiss before you leave for work, or hug your partner before you go to bed each night.

Step 4 Give each other space.

  • For example, you might have a girl’s or guy’s night out once per week, take a class by yourself, or join a special interest group on your own.

Step 5 Try new things with your partner.

  • For example, you could take a gourmet cooking class together, join a local hiking club, or try to learn a new language together.

Step 6 Consider couples therapy.

The best way to solve relationship problems is by improving communication. You can start by scheduling time for you and your loved one to just sit down and talk. For example, you could spend a few minutes in the morning to tell each other about your daily plans. When you think you're ready to move onto discussing the relationship, try to have your conversations in a public place to keep things civil.

The Top 12 Relationship Problems, According to the Experts

Research finds ‘fading enthusiasm’ to be the top concern in long-term romances..

For all the joy that romantic relationships bring us, it is needless to say that they are hard work. In the United States, it is estimated that one in two marriages ends in divorce . Other data show that approximately 33 percent of people find it difficult to maintain their romantic relationships.

What makes sustaining a romantic relationship so difficult? A new study forthcoming in the journal Evolutionary Psychology has an answer. A team of psychologists led by Menelaos Apostolou of the University of Nicosia in Greece found that ‘fading enthusiasm,’ ‘long work hours,’ and ‘lack of personal time and space’ are the three most common problems that prevent people from staying together. They also estimate that only 30 percent of adults find it easy to sustain long-term romantic relationships.

To come to this conclusion, the researchers recruited 123 Greek adults to participate in a 40-minute survey interview. During the interview, participants discussed various difficulties they had in their romantic relationships. The researchers kept track of the challenges mentioned by the participants, identifying 78 in total, and grouped them into 12 broad themes. Finally, they ranked these themes from most common to least common. Here’s what they found.

The 12 most common problems that prevent people from sustaining intimate relationships

  • Fading enthusiasm . The top concern has to do with the difficulty of sustaining energy and enthusiasm in a long-term relationship. Many partners/spouses find long-term relationships to be tiring and they get bored quickly. They also feel that the passion and romantic intensity fades sooner than expected. Fading enthusiasm is especially problematic among people who struggle with routines.
  • Long work hours . Some have speculated that divorce rates can be predicted by the length of a spouse’s commute. This research adds credibility to this claim. Partners who spend many hours working or put their careers ahead of their relationships are, not surprisingly, less likely to sustain a romantic relationship.
  • Lack of personal time and space . Feeling ‘suffocated’ or lacking sufficient ‘me time’ is another common reason why people have difficulty maintaining romantic relationships. People who feel constrained or oppressed by their relationship, or feel that their partner is constantly nagging them, will have issues sustaining their intimate relationship.
  • Character issues . People who view themselves as quirky or selfish also have difficulty sustaining long-term romantic relationships. Moreover, people who complain often to their romantic partners — perhaps reflecting deeper insecurity or character issue — also find it difficult to maintain a relationship for the long haul.
  • Clinginess . Clingy partners — people who become easily dependent on others and too often put their partner’s needs ahead of their own — have difficulty maintaining romantic relationships. But there’s another aspect to it. People who exercise constant control over their partner, or easily become jealous of their partner, also have difficulty sustaining relationships (especially when coupled with a tendency to expect too much of their partner).
  • Bad sex . Sexual chemistry is important to the long-term success of a relationship. Couples who disagree about the frequency and quality of sexual intimacy will find it difficult to maintain their relationship.
  • Infidelity and abuse . Lacking sexual interest in a partner, or engaging in infidelities, is one reason that prevents relationships from lasting. Abuse, especially in the form of physical violence, is another reason.
  • Children . Some couples with children report feeling that their kids absorb too much of their energy which can lead to relationship dissolution. Frequent disagreements about how to parent is another commonly cited reason that leads to relationship issues.
  • Lack of effort . All relationships require effort and some couples simply run out of steam. Individuals who do not take their partners’ needs into consideration, or neglect their partner, face serious relationship challenges. The hallmarks of this form of relationships neglect are ‘becoming distant,’ ‘taking one’s partner for granted,’ ‘not being honest,’ ‘not compromising,’ and ‘not tolerating a partner’s idiosyncrasies.’
  • Social circle issues . Individuals who do not have good relationships with their partners’ parents, relatives, and friends also find it difficult to sustain their romantic relationships.
  • Not being monogamous . Individuals who have difficulty resisting temptations and engage in adultery or affairs, not surprisingly, have difficulty sustaining long-term relationships. That said, partners do not need to be cheating on their significant other to face these types of challenges. Simply feeling like one is ‘missing opportunities,’ or constantly making comparisons with previous relationships, without engaging in an affair, is enough to drive a wedge between a couple.
  • Behavioral issues . Psychological problems, addiction (for example, gambling or alcohol ), and/or having to rely on family members to engage relationship interventions are all signs that a romance may not last.

The researchers found the importance of each of these themes to depend on a partner’s gender . For instance, ‘character issues’ were more likely to be cited as a problem area among women while ‘fading enthusiasm’ was more common among men.

The authors theorize that many of these problems are compounded by the modern way of life. They state, “The mismatch between ancestral and modern conditions is likely to account for many of the factors that have emerged here. In more detail, in the ancestral context, enthusiasm and intense romantic feelings would motivate people to start a relationship, and they are expected to reside as the relationship progresses. In a pre-industrial context, the support, protection, and subsistence benefits would take over, providing the incentive to people to keep the relationship. The absence of these factors in the post-industrial context makes the fading away of enthusiasm and romantic feelings impairing for keeping a relationship, as people lose the incentive to do so.”

Problems can’t be swept under the rug forever. At some point, they will come out and create a mess that will be hard to clean up.

Unresolved issues in a relationship could turn your fights over trivial things into arguments about something else you’ve been ignoring.

Suppose you find yourself constantly having the same fight over and over again or resenting each other for something that happened before. In that case, you likely have unresolved issues that need to be addressed.

Keep reading for some steps to deal with unresolved problems in your relationship.

1. Know that your feelings are valid.

Are you denying yourself the right to feel angry at your partner or upset about something they do? Or something they have done before?

To deal with the problems in your relationship, start by allowing yourself to feel those emotions. Don’t think that you shouldn’t feel the way you do.

Whatever you feel is okay, and you probably have justified reasons for the way you feel. If you try to bottle up your feelings instead, they will eventually spill out.

You don’t want to end up resenting your partner because you were too afraid to speak up about what’s bothering you. After all, that’s how unresolved problems stay unresolved.

You have to talk about your feelings with your partner. Start by acknowledging and validating them. You have the right to feel whatever you’re feeling, and your partner should be aware of it. Acknowledging your feelings is necessary if the issues that are causing those feelings are to go away.

2. Keep in mind that all relationships have problems.

You shouldn’t feel so bad about having problems in your relationship.

After all, all relationships experience difficulties. You and your partner shouldn’t beat yourselves up about not being able to have a “perfect relationship.” You are not perfect, and your relationship can’t be perfect either. The problems you’re experiencing aren’t a negative reflection of you; they are just something you have to work through together.

As long as you’re both willing to work on it, anything can be improved or at least managed.

In fact, it’s essential to understand that some things have to be managed and can’t be fully resolved. Don’t put pressure on yourself and your partner if you’re dealing with an unsolvable problem. Learn to accept what you cannot change and find ways to cope with it if it’s not a deal breaker.

Sometimes, there are things that you have to learn to live with if you want to continue a relationship. It’s not the end of the world if a problem persists. As already mentioned, no relationship is without flaws.

If you care about your partner and you can’t seem to fix the issue, it might be time to set new and reasonable expectations.

3. Remember that conflict is normal.

There are conflicts in all relationships from time to time. The important thing to remember is that they are rarely the fault of only one person. Try not to play the blame game and accept that you’ve both played a part in creating the problem instead.

Accept that you have different points of view and try to see things from your partner’s perspective. It’s helpful to have a proactive problem-solving attitude when it comes to conflicts. Instead of shutting down, criticizing your partner, or trying to prove them wrong, seek to make progress.

Try to be calm during conflicts because an argument shouldn’t include yelling and name-calling . If you change your attitude towards conflicts and improve how you fight, it will be easier to resolve issues.

It’s always helpful to limit accusations and aggressive attitudes. Just remember that being assertive in an argument is not the same as being aggressive.

Communicating well is a necessary part of resolving any issues, and it includes proper communication even while you’re upset or angry at each other. Try to look at conflicts as a means to an end. You are not fighting to prove a point or prove your partner wrong. You’re fighting to solve a problem.

4. Remind yourself of all the reasons why you care about your partner.

The unresolved problems in your relationship are probably bothering you. They make you feel negatively toward your partner and the relationship.

To counter these feelings, try to outweigh the negative with the positive.

Think about why you care about your partner before addressing the issue. This will help keep you calm and focused on finding solutions during conflicts. If you want to stay with your partner and save the relationship, you want to have positive feelings to motivate you.

If something has been bothering you for a while now, you might be harboring negative emotions that make you see your partner differently. So, remember why you fell in love with them in the first place and recall their good qualities.

Even if you have many problems in your relationship, if you care about each other enough, you’ll find a way to make it work.

Remind yourself why your partner is worth the trouble before you embark on a journey to solve your problems. Understand that it might take time before things are the way you’d want them to be. You don’t want to harbor negative feelings toward your partner during the time it takes to fix things.

Focus on your partner’s positive traits. Focus on everything that you love about them. It will give you the strength to fight for the relationship and the ability to remain calm enough to discuss the problems with them.

5. Identify the issues in your relationship.

So, there are problems, but are you sure you know what they are?

Are your fights really about the topic you’re fighting about? Or are they about something else that you’re trying to ignore?

Maybe you’re still upset about something that happened before. Perhaps you’re not quite sure what the problem is exactly.

Take some time to identify the issues in your relationship. It might help to talk to someone you trust about them. You could also talk to a therapist who could help you get to the root of the problem.

Maybe there is something that you thought you’d forgiven your partner for, but you’re actually still upset about it. Perhaps you are not even aware of the underlying issue that you’re upset about.

For instance, maybe you think you’re upset because your partner spends a lot of money, but you’re really upset about not being involved in financial decisions. Maybe your partner cheated on you, and you tried to forgive them, but you are still bitter about it.

Whatever the problem is in your relationship, you should spend some time thinking about it. Always try to dig deeper.

What’s on the surface might not be the real issue you’re dealing with, and you can’t fix it if you don’t know what it is exactly.

6. Consider whether the issues are deal breakers.

Not all problems are created equal. Some problems can be lived with. Others ought to spell the end of your relationship.

Ask yourself: can you live with the unresolved issues in your relationship if they happen to stay unresolved? Or are there deal breakers that you’re not willing to settle for?

Be honest with yourself and clear about what you can and can’t tolerate. If you can live with the problems in your relationship, focus on finding ways to thrive in it despite them.

If you have tried fixing them and can’t live with them, you should consider ending the relationship. Not everything can be repaired, and sometimes that’s an uncomfortable realization.

Can you stay with your partner if things don’t change? Have you tried changing them?

Keep in mind that you should be realistic when considering this. Don’t expect things to be perfect with your next partner.

If there are actual deal breakers, it might be best to end things. But if you want to end things because you’re hoping for a perfect relationship with no issues, think about it some more. There will always be problems in any relationship. It’s just a question of which you can tolerate or fix and which you can’t.

7. Consider whether there’s a bright side to it all.

Problems are inherently bad, but there’s usually a bright side. Look at things from a different perspective to see if there’s something positive in all that mess.

For instance, if you hate that you can’t count on your partner, remind yourself how much you love their spontaneity and independence. If the problem is that the relationship has gotten boring, keep in mind that it is also safe and comforting to know you can depend on someone.

Try to look at your specific problem this way, and you might discover that the issue is not as serious as it seems.

When you look at things from a negative perspective, they can feel very overwhelming. Try to maintain a positive attitude and look at things from both sides. Everything usually has upsides and downsides. If you can’t fix the problem it will be helpful to know how to make it work for you and take advantage of its bright side.

8. Don’t assume that your partner doesn’t care about you.

When you’re upset because of the problems in your relationship, you could start thinking that your partner doesn’t care about you. But do you have any evidence to support that theory, or is it clear that your partner cares about you?

Your relationship can survive the problems you’re experiencing if you both want to make it work. Don’t start thinking that the relationship is doomed. Negative thoughts like these can make you see the bad in everything.

If you want to stay in your relationship, always try to have a positive attitude. Having a positive attitude towards problems can help you realize that they’re not as big as they seem.

Having a positive attitude will help you work on the issues in your relationship and communicate with your partner more efficiently – even during arguments. The worst thing that could happen if you try this approach is that you’ll be a happier person. Try to see the good in everything.

Unless you have proof that your partner doesn’t care about you, don’t assume it just because you’re struggling with an issue in your relationship. If you believe your relationship is doomed, it probably will be at some point in the future. So try not to make problems more significant than they already are.

9. Don’t be afraid to speak up and share your thoughts.

The reason the problems you’re experiencing are left unattended may be because you’re scared to speak up about them.

Maybe you are too worried that your partner will get mad at you, or you think that they’ll shut down. Perhaps you’re assuming they’ll say that you’re overreacting or that you’re making a fuss over nothing.

If you can’t talk to your partner about the problems in your relationship, that’s just another problem that’s preventing you from resolving the rest of them.

Don’t be afraid to speak up and tell your partner what’s on your mind. Take some time to think about what you will say before talking to them, especially if you’re worried that you’ll say something wrong.

However, try not to be afraid to speak your mind around them. A relationship where you can’t be honest or discuss problems isn’t a healthy one.

Maybe this is the issue you should address first. You should feel comfortable enough around your partner to speak up about what’s bothering you, so find the courage to do that. You can’t say anything wrong around someone who loves you enough to listen to the entire story.

10. Communicate about the unresolved issues.

You can’t keep postponing the conversation that you need to have with your partner. Talk to them about the problems in your relationship and try to find a way to solve them together.

If you can’t talk about the issue, there is no way you could fix it. Open up to them and have a heart-to-heart conversation about what’s been bothering you. Help your partner see things from your point of view and consider their perspective too. Don’t point fingers or turn the conversation into a big fight. By remaining calm and assertive, it will be easier to get the message across.

You want to fix the problems in your relationship, not create new ones, and your partner should understand that. Try to be empathetic and listen to your partner’s side of the story without criticizing or blaming them. Let them open up to you and share their thoughts and feelings about the issues too.

If you’re having trouble communicating efficiently, seek the help of a relationship counselor and improve your communication skills. Don’t forget that you need to talk about the problems if you want to fix them.

11. Be prepared to forgive, negotiate, and compromise.

Some problems can be resolved simply by forgiving each other for the mistakes you’ve made so far. Be prepared and willing to let go of any resentment and truly forgive your partner, even if they have hurt you a lot. You will also need to be prepared to negotiate and make compromises.

Things might not work out exactly the way you’ve imagined, but things could get better. If your partner shows that they are willing to work on the relationship and meet you halfway, accept that. It might not resolve the issue, but it could make it easier to tolerate it. As long as they address your concerns to some extent, you will be on the right track, and that would be enough for now.

You can’t expect things to change overnight. Working on a relationship takes time, and it’s all about the small steps. You’ll get there as long as you’re looking in the same direction and walking side by side. Don’t insist that the problem be fixed immediately or expect it to happen.

Try to find happiness if you’re making progress and if your partner is willing to do something about it. Progress alone might not be enough in the long run, but it’s a huge step forward for now.

12. Work on your friendship.

To be great partners to each other, you also need to be good friends.

Work on building your friendship. Engage in fun activities together, discover shared interests, share a hobby, and go on regular dates. There are lots of fun ideas for quality time together – both inside and outside the home. And using them will help you work on the problems in your relationship.

Don’t only be romantic partners – be a team, be best friends, and work on improving your love life together. Start talking more and opening up to each other if you’ve been having trouble with that.

Most importantly, laugh more and remind yourselves of all the reasons why you enjoy each other’s company. Make each other feel loved, appreciated, and cherished.

If you can be friends and work as a team, you can do anything, including resolving your issues. So, work on deepening the bond, strengthening the connection, and truly becoming good friends that enjoy being around each other.

13. Don’t sweep problems under the rug.

Problems don’t go away when you choose to ignore them and sweep them under the rug. Start addressing issues in your relationship as soon as they appear. The sooner you fix them, the better.

What’s the point in postponing it until the problem gets bigger and more difficult to manage?

The most important part of all of this is being friends, talking about issues calmly, and working on them together. When you fight, don’t spend days not talking to each other or pouting. Have a grown-up discussion about your problems as soon as you can calmly talk about them.

If your relationship is going to last, you’ll need to figure out which issues need managing and which need resolving. Look at this as a training period for what’s yet to come.

The fact that there’ll always be some problems shouldn’t scare you; that’s just life. If you have the right attitude and effective communication in your relationship, you can overcome it all together.

14. Find ways to work on the problem together.

Remind yourself that both of you took part in creating the problem. Therefore, it’s your joint responsibility to solve it. It takes two to tango, so accept that the current state of your relationship is not only one partner’s fault. Accept your part of the blame instead of blaming your partner for everything. This is the first step to resolving the problem together.

Your partner needs to be willing to find a way to make things work. After all, you can’t fix your relationship without them. Both of you need to put an equal amount of effort into making your relationship as happy and healthy as it can be. Encourage your partner to accept their part of the blame too.

You can set a positive example with your behavior. If your partner makes progress, acknowledge it and praise them for it. Don’t forget – you’re in this together.

15. Accept your differences but work on improving yourselves.

Not all problems have a solution; you might have to accept that you and your partner have your differences. You won’t always see eye to eye, and that’s normal. Again, some problems can’t be fixed, but if you can live with them, it’s worth trying to make it work with your partner.

Relationships aren’t always smooth sailing, and no one is a saint. Sometimes you just have to agree to disagree and move past it. If you can’t find a way to fix something, you might find a way to accept it.

Maybe you’ll need to forgive your partner for something they did, or you’ll accept the bad with the good. Whatever the case may be, if you care about your partner and they feel the same way about you, don’t give up on the relationship because there are some difficulties.

Learn to be happy despite the difficulties. You can do that by putting effort into making each other happy. Work on improving yourself and your relationship because happy couples grow together in their relationships .

16. Talk to a relationship expert.

Ultimately, the most effective way to resolve issues in your relationship depends on the problem and your specific situation. Talking to someone about it might be the best idea.

A relationship counselor could give you tailored advice based on your specific circumstances. You can speak to one with or without your partner. It might be best to try out a session on your own and include your partner after the counselor is familiar with the issue.

By all means, seek the help of your loved ones as well. However, know that an experienced professional might be more objective and give you better insights into the problem.

When you want to improve your relationship, you should use all the help you can get, and there’s no shame in talking to a counselor.

If this is something you feel is right for you, speak to one of the relationships experts at Relationship Hero . You can connect with them via video, phone, or instant message to get the help and advice you need.

Solving Common Relationship Problems: Building Stronger Bonds

Updated: Sep 27, 2023

Couple Solving problems to enjoy more together

In every relationship, challenges and conflicts are bound to arise. However, knowing how to address and solve these problems is crucial for maintaining a healthy and harmonious partnership. This article will explore some typical relationship issues and provide practical solutions to help you strengthen your bond with your partner. Whether you're facing infidelity, communication breakdowns, or conflict, this article will equip you with problem-solving skills to tackle these obstacles and nurture a thriving relationship.   

Understanding Relationship Problems: Identifying the Core Issues

Within the context of every relationship, it is essential to recognize and acknowledge the presence of problems. However, it can sometimes be challenging to identify the core issues causing the difficulties. Relationship problems can manifest in various ways, such as frequent arguments, lack of emotional connection, or feeling distant from your partner.

Communication Breakdown: When Words Fail

One of the most common relationship problems is a breakdown in communication. This can manifest as frequent misunderstandings, feeling unheard or invalidated, or avoiding difficult conversations. Poor communication can lead to resentment, frustration, and emotional distance. To address this issue, it's important to develop healthy communication habits, such as active listening, expressing your feelings clearly and respectfully, and addressing conflicts in a constructive manner.

Trust Issues: The Erosion of Faith

Trust is the foundation of any relationship. When trust is broken, it can lead to feelings of insecurity, suspicion, and emotional distress. Trust issues can stem from infidelity, dishonesty, or consistent unreliability. Rebuilding trust requires time, patience, and consistent effort from both partners. It involves open and honest communication, demonstrating reliability, and showing remorse and commitment to change when trust has been broken.

Value Discrepancies: When Priorities Diverge

Differences in values or priorities can also cause relationship problems. This can occur when partners have different views on important aspects of life, such as finances, parenting, or lifestyle choices. These discrepancies can lead to frequent disagreements and feelings of dissatisfaction or incompatibility. To address this issue, it's crucial to have open discussions about your values and priorities, find common ground, and respect each other's perspectives.

External Stressors: The Impact of Outside Pressure

External factors such as work stress, financial pressure, or family issues can also impact a relationship. These stressors can lead to increased tension, conflict, or emotional withdrawal. It's important to recognize the impact of these external pressures and take steps to manage them. This might involve setting boundaries, seeking professional help, or developing stress management strategies.

Emotional Distance: The Growing Gap

Emotional distance is a common relationship problem that can manifest as feeling disconnected, lonely, or unappreciated in your relationship. This can occur when partners neglect their emotional connection, fail to express affection, or become complacent. To bridge this emotional gap, it's important to prioritize quality time, express your feelings and needs, and show appreciation for each other.

In conclusion, understanding relationship problems involves self-reflection, open communication, and a willingness to address the core issues. By identifying and addressing these issues, you can work towards resolving them and strengthening your relationship.

Communication Breakdown: Addressing Relationship Issues Through Effective Dialogue

Communication breakdown is a common issue in relationships and can significantly impact the overall dynamics. Poor communication can lead to misunderstandings, misinterpretations, and unresolved conflicts. It's important to address communication issues head-on and develop practical dialogue skills.

Active Listening: The Key to Understanding Your Partner

Active listening is a crucial part of effective communication. It involves giving your full attention to your partner when they are speaking and showing genuine interest in what they are saying. This means avoiding interruptions and not formulating your response while they are still speaking. Instead, focus on understanding their perspective and feelings. By doing so, you show respect for your partner's thoughts and feelings and foster a deeper understanding between you both.

Expressing Thoughts and Feelings: The Power of Assertive Communication

Expressing your thoughts and feelings honestly and assertively is another vital aspect of effective communication. This involves being clear and concise in your communication and using "I" statements to express your feelings without blaming or criticizing your partner. For example, instead of saying "You never listen to me," you could say, "I feel unheard when I share my thoughts with you." This approach encourages open dialogue and helps to avoid defensiveness.

Practicing Empathy: Building a Deeper Connection

Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. In the context of a relationship, it involves putting yourself in your partner's shoes and trying to understand their perspective and emotions. By validating their feelings and showing understanding, you can foster a deeper emotional connection and improve your communication.

Creating a Safe Space: Encouraging Open Dialogue

Creating a safe and non-judgmental space for communication is essential for addressing relationship issues effectively. This involves encouraging open dialogue where both partners feel comfortable expressing their needs, concerns, and desires. It's important to approach these conversations with an open mind and a willingness to understand your partner's perspective.

Continuous Effort: The Journey of Effective Communication

Remember, effective communication is not a one-time event but a continuous journey. It requires ongoing effort, patience, and practice. By actively listening, expressing your thoughts and feelings assertively, practicing empathy, and creating a safe space for dialogue, you can improve your communication skills and address relationship issues more effectively. This, in turn, can lead to a healthier, more fulfilling relationship.

Trust in Relationships: The Cornerstone of a Strong Bond

Trust is the bedrock of any healthy relationship. It is the assurance that your partner will respect, value, and protect the bond you share. Trust can manifest in various ways and is not limited to fidelity. It encompasses honesty, reliability, and emotional availability among other things. When trust is compromised , it can cause significant distress, but it's important to remember that it can be rebuilt. Here are some examples of trust in a relationship and how they can be nurtured.

Emotional Trust: Sharing Your Innermost Feelings

Emotional trust is about feeling safe to express your deepest emotions and vulnerabilities without fear of judgment or rejection. It's about knowing that your partner will handle your feelings with care and respect. This trust is often affected when one partner dismisses or belittles the other's feelings. To foster emotional trust, it's important to validate each other's feelings, show empathy, and offer comfort and support when needed.

Reliability: Trusting Your Partner to Follow Through

Reliability is about believing that your partner will do what they say they will. This form of trust can be damaged by broken promises or repeated forgetfulness. To build reliability, it's crucial to follow through on commitments, communicate openly if you can't meet a promise, and show consistency in your actions.

Honesty: The Foundation of Trust

Honesty is the cornerstone of trust. It's about being truthful, even when the truth is uncomfortable. Dishonesty, even in small matters, can erode trust over time. To cultivate honesty, it's important to create a safe space where both partners can speak their truth without fear of retaliation or harsh criticism.

Trust After Infidelity: Rebuilding a Broken Bond

While infidelity can severely damage trust, it's important to remember that with time, patience, and consistent effort, trust can be rebuilt. The process involves open and honest communication, expressing remorse, setting clear boundaries, and possibly seeking professional help. The partner who was unfaithful must be transparent and accountable, while the betrayed partner should be open to forgiveness and allow space for healing.

Trust in Decision-Making: Believing in Your Partner's Judgement

Trust in decision-making is about believing in your partner's ability to make sound decisions that consider the well-being of the relationship. This trust can be affected when one partner consistently makes poor decisions or disregards the other's input. To build this trust, it's important to involve each other in decisions, respect each other's opinions, and show that you value your partner's judgement.

Trust in a relationship is multifaceted and extends beyond fidelity. It's about emotional safety, reliability, honesty, and mutual respect. When trust is compromised, it's crucial to communicate openly, show understanding, and take steps towards rebuilding it. Remember, rebuilding trust is a journey that requires patience, commitment, and consistent effort from both partners.

Solving Conflict: Navigating Disagreements and Finding Common Ground

Conflict is an inevitable part of any relationship. Disagreements and differences of opinion are natural, but how couples manage and resolve these conflicts can significantly impact the relationship's overall health.

Active Listening: The Key to Understanding

Active listening is a crucial component of effective conflict resolution. It involves fully focusing on your partner, understanding their perspective, and responding thoughtfully. By demonstrating that you value your partner's viewpoint, you can foster a sense of mutual respect and understanding, even when you disagree.

Respectful Communication: Maintaining Dignity in Disagreements

Respectful communication is about expressing your thoughts and feelings without belittling or hurting your partner. Avoid using derogatory language, raising your voice, or becoming defensive. Instead, use "I" statements to express your feelings and needs without blaming or criticizing your partner. This approach can help prevent conflicts from escalating and maintain a sense of dignity and respect during disagreements.

Taking Time-Outs: Cooling Down to Heat Up the Conversation

When emotions run high during a conflict, taking a time-out can be beneficial. This involves stepping away from the discussion temporarily to cool down and reflect on your emotions. Once you've calmed down, you can return to the conversation with a clearer mind and a more constructive attitude. Remember, the goal of a time-out is not to avoid the conflict, but to manage it more effectively.

Seeking Professional Help: Guided Conflict Resolution

If conflicts persist or become overwhelming, seeking professional help can be a wise decision. A couples therapist or counselor can facilitate productive conversations, teach practical conflict resolution skills, and help uncover underlying issues contributing to recurring conflicts. This guidance can provide a fresh perspective and equip you with the tools to manage future conflicts more effectively.

Embracing Compromise: Finding Middle Ground

Not all conflicts can be resolved entirely, and that's okay. Sometimes, the best outcome is finding a compromise or agreeing to disagree. The key is to ensure that both partners feel heard, respected, and valued during the conflict resolution process. By embracing compromise, you can navigate disagreements without damaging your relationship.

In conclusion, navigating disagreements and finding common ground is an essential part of maintaining a healthy relationship. By practicing active listening, communicating respectfully, taking time-outs, seeking professional help when needed, and embracing compromise, you can manage conflicts effectively and strengthen your bond.

Shared Life Goals: Aligning Your Aspirations for a Fulfilling Partnership

Having shared goals is vital for building a strong foundation in a relationship. When partners have different visions of the future or incompatible aspirations, it can strain the relationship and lead to frustration and dissatisfaction.

To align your goals, engaging in open and honest conversations about your aspirations and expectations is crucial. Discuss your career ambitions, desired lifestyle, family planning, financial goals, and other significant aspects shaping your vision for the future.

Career Ambitions: Supporting Each Other's Professional Growth

Career ambitions play a significant role in shaping our lives. In a relationship, it's important to understand and support each other's professional goals. This might involve discussing potential relocations, work-life balance, or even entrepreneurial aspirations. Supporting each other's career growth not only strengthens the bond but also contributes to individual fulfillment and happiness.

Lifestyle Choices: Building a Life Together

Lifestyle choices, such as where to live, how to spend leisure time, or even dietary preferences, can significantly impact a relationship. It's crucial to discuss these aspects and find common ground. Shared lifestyle choices can enhance compatibility and ensure both partners enjoy their life together.

Family Planning: Envisioning a Shared Future

Family planning is a crucial aspect of shared life goals, involving decisions about having children, their upbringing, and the role of extended family. These discussions require open communication, understanding, and compromise. It's important to regularly revisit these conversations as circumstances and desires may change over time. Aligning on family planning goals can strengthen the bond between partners and provide a clear, shared vision for the future, helping to navigate the joys and challenges of family life together.

Health and Wellness Goals: Prioritizing a Healthy Lifestyle Together

Health and wellness goals are an essential part of shared life aspirations. Whether it's maintaining a balanced diet, regular exercise, or mental health practices, it's important to support each other in these endeavors. A shared commitment to health can enhance your quality of life and deepen your bond as you journey towards wellness together.

Travel and Adventure: Exploring the World as a Team

Travel and adventure goals can add excitement and novelty to a relationship. Whether it's exploring new countries, trying out different cuisines, or embarking on thrilling adventures, these shared experiences can create lasting memories and strengthen your bond. Discussing and planning these experiences together can be a fun and enriching aspect of your relationship.

Social Goals: Building a Shared Social Network

Social goals, such as making new friends as a couple, spending time with family, or engaging in community service, can also be part of shared life goals. A shared social network can provide a sense of community and belonging, enhancing the depth and breadth of your relationship experiences.

Spiritual Goals: Nurturing a Shared Spiritual Journey

If spirituality is important to either or both partners, discussing and aligning on spiritual goals can be beneficial. This might involve practices like meditation, attending religious services, or exploring philosophical beliefs together. A shared spiritual journey can provide a deeper sense of connection and understanding between partners.

Conflict Resolution Goals: Strengthening Your Relationship Through Challenges

Every relationship faces conflicts and challenges. Setting goals for how to handle disagreements—such as committing to open communication, avoiding blame, and seeking to understand before being understood—can strengthen your relationship. These shared strategies can help ensure that conflicts become opportunities for growth rather than sources of division.

In conclusion, shared life goals encompass various aspects of life and require ongoing communication and reassessment. As you and your partner evolve, so too will your shared goals. Keeping the dialogue open and supporting each other through these changes can lead to a fulfilling and resilient partnership.

Strengthening Intimacy: Revitalizing Your Romantic Connection

Intimacy is a vital component of any romantic relationship, encompassing emotional, physical, and sexual connection. Over time, factors such as work stress, parenting responsibilities, or complacency can lead to a decline in intimacy. To revitalize the romantic connection, it's important to prioritize and nurture intimacy within the relationship.

Prioritizing Quality Time: Nurturing Connection Through Shared Experiences

Quality time is a crucial ingredient in the recipe for a thriving relationship. It involves dedicating undivided attention to your partner, free from distractions. This could be as simple as enjoying a meal together without the interference of technology, or planning regular date nights that allow you to reconnect. Shared experiences, such as traveling, trying out a new hobby, or even tackling a project together, can also create lasting memories and deepen your bond.

Open Communication: The Bridge to Deeper Intimacy

Open and honest communication is the bridge to deeper intimacy. It involves expressing your thoughts, feelings, desires, and needs to your partner and encouraging them to do the same. This exchange fosters trust and understanding, allowing both partners to feel seen, heard, and valued. Remember, effective communication is not just about talking, but also about listening with empathy and without judgment.

Physical Affection: Strengthening Bonds Through Touch

Physical affection, such as holding hands, hugging, or kissing, is a powerful way to express love and strengthen your emotional connection. These small gestures of love can make your partner feel cherished and desired. Be intentional about showing affection to your partner daily, not just in private but also in public. This can help to maintain the spark in your relationship and foster a deeper emotional connection.

Sexual Intimacy: Enhancing Connection in the Bedroom

Sexual intimacy is a vital aspect of many romantic relationships. It involves more than just the physical act; it's about expressing love, desire, and vulnerability. If challenges arise in this area, it's important to communicate openly and non-judgmentally about your desires, concerns, and any issues that may be affecting your sexual connection. Exploring new experiences, trying different techniques, or seeking professional guidance can help to enhance your sexual intimacy.

Emotional Intimacy: Fostering a Safe Space for Vulnerability

Emotional intimacy is about creating a safe space where both partners can share their deepest thoughts, feelings, hopes, and fears without fear of judgment or rejection. It involves active listening, empathy, and validation when your partner shares their feelings. This level of vulnerability can strengthen your bond and make your relationship more resilient in the face of challenges.

Remember, intimacy is not a destination but a journey. It requires ongoing effort, patience, and understanding. By prioritizing quality time, practicing open communication, showing physical affection, enhancing sexual intimacy, and fostering emotional intimacy, you can revitalize your romantic connection and build a stronger, more fulfilling relationship.

These nine different types of problems will help you see what is typical for many couples. But, remember that no matter how common (or oddball!) your relationship problems are, there are solutions. If, of course, you’re open-minded and creative.

“Our relationship problems have no solutions and I know we’re doomed,” says Zoya on How Do You Deal With the Silent Treatment in Your Relationship? . “I’m not happy with our marriage and I haven’t been for a long time. I don’t believe we should ever have gotten married but at the same time I love my husband. I’m so scared of our future. When we have problems he goes into silence and withdrawal. When I have problems I want to talk and connect. What is the solution to our relationship problems?”

This is a good example of the problem of “catastrophizing” in a relationship. In psychology, this means that people allow their thoughts to create catastrophes. For example, when my husband and I bought our house my mother-in-law was anxious and afraid that we would “lose everything.” I guess she thought we might lose our jobs, miss mortgage payments, and go bankrupt.

Losing everything – whether it’s financial bankruptcy or the most important relationships in your life – is a scary thought. But it’s just a thought . It’s not reality. Thoughts like that can trap you in fear, helplessness, and paralysis for the rest of your life. If you cling to your thoughts about anything – including your relationship problems – you will never find the solution. Instead of letting your thoughts control your feelings and choices, learn how to change your thought patterns.

While you’re reading through these relationship problems and solutions, remember that your worst case scenarios are not reality. Neither are these problems! They may not even be happening yet. Or, you may be making a big deal out of something you’d happily live with if you were more peaceful and present within yourself.

9 Typical Relationship Problems – Plus Solutions

In When You Live With a Moody Husband – Loving What Is I describe how to recognize and change how you think about your partner. It’s really important to be aware of your thinking; what you think about changes how you relate and respond to others. Your thinking also controls your feelings, choices, and ultimately your life .

These typical relationship problems are different than the warning signs of a bad relationship . Every one of these problems is caused by what you think about your husband or boyfriend. These problems are also caused by what you think about relationships.

Good news! Being aware of how you think about your relationship problems will help you find solutions.

1. Being distracted and even fighting about the “wrong” problem

What relationship problems do you think you have? Write them down. Ask your boyfriend or husband to do the same. Maybe he’ll say you and he have no problems. Your relationship is fine; he can’t see anything wrong with it. This is common for couples, and perhaps more typical for men. That’s why this is the first relationship problem on this list: your boyfriend or husband doesn’t think there’s anything to worry about while you’ve been struggling for months or even years to find solutions to your relationship problems.

The solution: Talk to your husband or boyfriend about your different perceptions of relationship problems. Ask him to share his experience – and don’t judge him . Let him have his own thoughts and feelings! Give your boyfriend or husband time to think and respond; you’ve been thinking about your relationship problems for a long time, right? Your partner may not be ready or able to give you the response you want. If days or weeks or years go by and your boyfriend or husband still hasn’t figured out that there are problems in your relationship, then you have two options: 1) change your expectations of him and your relationship; or 2) try to change how he thinks. If you’re leaning toward the second choice, get relationship help.

2. Procrastination and avoidance

The second most common relationship problem is procrastination. You know exactly what relationship problems you’re dealing with, but you’re putting off “the talk” with your boyfriend or husband. It’s painful, confusing and emotional to talk about relationship problems. Finding the right solutions is hard. It takes time and effort. Avoidance is easier and less scary than facing problems in a relationship – especially if you tend to create catastrophes and be controlled by fear of the future.

The solution to this relationship problem: Before you get honest and real with your partner, learn how to be honest with yourself. You’ve lived the problems for a long time; give yourself time to adjust to a new way of thinking and being. This new way of approaching life involves being honest about your relationship problems and taking time to find the right solutions for you .

3. Refusing to take responsibility or “own” the problem

This is the one of the most common reasons relationships fail . Many women refuse to take responsibility for their relationship problems. It’s always the man’s fault for being a disloyal husband, bad boyfriend, or cheating partner. Most of the women who write about their problems on relationship blogs focus on their partner. They take no responsibility for their own choices and decision to stay in an unhealthy relationship or bad marriage. All relationship problems are caused by both partners, to different degrees. Even if your relationship problem is 100% caused by your boyfriend or husband, you are contributing to it by refusing to solve or deal with it in some way.

The solution: Ask yourself how you’re helping to create the problem in your relationship. Even if you are doing nothing, you are doing something. Be honest, brutally honest, with yourself. How can you change how you think about your relationship, yourself, and your life? Maybe the way to solve your problem is to leave your husband or move out of your boyfriend’s house. This isn’t just about taking responsibility for your role and power in the relationship. It’s owning your life .

4. Giving up too early

Most relationship problems take one, two, three or more attempts to solve. Whether you’re dealing with parenting conflicts, arguments about aging parents, money fights, different personalities, ex-wives or ex-husbands, addictions or cheating in your marriage…it takes time and effort to find the best ways to solve your problems.

The solution to this relationship problem: As a couple, commit to working together to finding the best ways to solve the problems you’re facing in your relationship. Decide that you are a team, that you will work together to find solutions — without giving up too early. Arm yourselves for the future, and resolve to keep working together even when it’s hard.

5. Feeling overwhelmed by real and feared relationship problems

Feeling overwhelmed and helpless is common, especially if you’ve been avoiding your relationship problems for months or years. Some couples avoid or deny their problems for decades of marriage! This makes everything too overwhelming and big to deal with….so you continue to ignore the problems. It seems easier to “deal with it tomorrow.” Of course, tomorrow never comes.

The solution: Break your problems down into smaller, more manageable chunks. If your most pressing problem is your addiction to gambling, for example, start talking to people who can help you cope with your compulsion. If this seems like too much, write down a description of your ideal life. What do you want your life to look like in one year? How can you create the conditions it takes to get there? If this makes you feel even more overwhelmed, brainstorm other solutions to your problem. Take it slow, easy, simple. One step at a time.

6. Not asking for help

The good news is that you’re searching for “solutions to relationship problems” — and you’re still reading this article! Awesome. This is one way of getting help. But you know it’s not enough. You know you need different ideas on how to solve the problems in your relationship or marriage…but you don’t know how to get the help you need.

The solution: Ask the right people for help. I’m not the right person; I can’t help you solve the problems in your relationship. You may feel like you’re asking for help by writing about your relationship problems in the comments section below, but the truth is that it’ll get you nowhere. Instead, get more in-depth help from a counselor, therapist, psychologist, doctor, pastor, or lawyer. Don’t ask strangers on the internet for advice on how to solve problems in your relationship. They don’t know you . They don’t know your boyfriend or husband. They don’t know what’s really going on in your relationship. Ask someone who can actually help you solve your problems.

7. Lack of communication

Is it possible that your relationship problems are actually easier than you think to solve? Imagine how easy it could be to simply ask your boyfriend to call when he’s going to be late for a date, or tell your husband how attacked or scared you feel when he criticizes your actions at home, parenting skills, or work decisions. Or…even more amazing…what if you figured out that what you really need and want is an unconditional, internal source of self-worth and love? You can’t get this presence or power from your husband or boyfriend, no matter how great he is. This source of love – an internal, ever-present, powerful stream of love and peace – is God’s presence. And it involves a simple form of communication: just being aware of something beyond yourself.

The solution: Not communicating clearly is one of the most common relationship problems and has the easiest solution. First, figure out what you’re lacking. Write this down. Write down the reasons you need this thing you’re not getting in your relationship. Ask yourself if you can really get it from your boyfriend or husband, or if it has to come from a different source. Remember that your partner can’t be your savior. Your boyfriend or husband is just a guy with weaknesses and faults. He’ll disappoint you because he is human. Don’t look to him as a source of your self-worth, purpose, or reason for being alive. If he can give you what you need (eg, emotional support for specific problems), communicate it to him.

8. Unrealistic expectations and thoughts about relationships

This is one of the top ten most common reasons couples don’t find solutions to their problems: their relationship expectations are completely unrealistic. Childish and immature, even. Did you really expect yourself to feel “in love” every day, all the time? Did you really expect your boyfriend or husband to change his basic personality traits or let go of bad habits? Your expectations are the biggest reason for your disappointments and pain. Your unmet expectations are the biggest source of suffering in your life.

The solution: Identify what you expect from our boyfriend or husband. Make a list, and be specific. And be honest! Pretend you’ll never show this list to anyone (and in fact, you don’t have to — you can tear it up the minute it’s written). What are your relationship expectations, and how are they contributing to the problems in your relationship? How many of your expectations are realistic? If you’re brave, you’ll show this list to someone you trust. You’ll ask for an outside opinion of your relationship expectations.

9. Not celebrating growth, connection, beauty and joy together

Finally — you made it! The final reason you’re not finding solutions to your problems is that you haven’t celebrated the problems you’ve dealt with and overcome as a couple. For example, my husband and I coped with infertility. Not only did we keep our marriage strong through this, we actually learned ways to celebrate our childless situation. I’m grateful now that we didn’t have kids, and I celebrate the fact that Bruce and I came through this together. We’re stronger and happier than ever before, and we trust God more than we ever did.

The solution to this relationship problem: What problems have you and your boyfriend or husband already solved? What can you celebrate as a couple? Take time to enjoy the progress you’ve already made. See how far you’ve come. Look at your relationship together, and marvel at the beauty of the love you have. Enjoy your union, for you were brought together for a reason.

I need more advice

Fixing relationships these days is pretty easy if you know the right therapist. I can recommend anyone to someone that can help!

My husband grew up poor and now tries to control all our spending. I can’t even buy necessary bathroom items and toiletries without having to defend my purchase. I love him but his poverty mentality is ruining our relationship. It helps to know that it’s a scarcity mentality or poverty mindset, and I learned how childhood financial problems affect adult choices. Finances are one of the most common problems in relationships and it’s worse when the person doesn’t admit there is a problem.

Good day. Me and my partner we have been together since 2017 we started staying together in March 2019, she is not a clean person she doesn’t care about hygiene she’s taking arvs, she smokes too much she drinks everyday, we working in the same company, she doesn’t help with anything in the house, I do the cooking, cleaning, laundry,ironing everything she will just leave her clothes on the floor I have to pick them, she will open pots without washing her hands,she will smoke inside the house, and brushing her teeth during the weekend in the morning it’s a problem and her mouth smells very bad because she has false teeth. And when I’m asking her to flush the toilet after using it or wiping the basin after using it she becomes angry. If I tell her that I’m not cooking she can eat bread she becomes angry. And we fight by exchanging words. I have an eight year old daughter whenever me n her fights she said I always tell my daughter that I love her meaning I’m showing her that a relationship means nothing to me. She told me that she was raped several times I tried loving her but she’s hurting me with words she said she wants a child too because always when we fight I take my baby out and buy her clothes and food and taking her to hotels. Please help me I dont know how to deal with the situation anymore I tried showing her love I tried praying for her I dont know what to do anymore.

I tottaly agree. my boyfriend is an a$$hole. he only cares about himself. never about me. I am so tired of the games he plays. I wish he would realize that there is more to life rather than school and the gym.

Relationship Problems (Issues)

What is a relationship, relationship problem solving.

Every relationship can have problems, big and small. Although the human mind tends to think that something is wrong when faced with a problem, having problems in our relationships does not mean that the relationship is unhealthy. As long as the parties to the relationship approach the problems rationally and want to solve them together, the relationship will continue in a healthy way.

When we think of relationships, the first thing that comes to mind is romantic relationships. Problems with partners in romantic relationships are often more upsetting or disturbing than problems in other relationships. Of course, this varies from person to person. For some people, problems in family or friendships may take up more space in their lives.

Considering the differences between people, it would be appropriate to talk about friendship, family, and romantic relationships under the general heading of relationships and to talk specifically about them when appropriate.

Since not every relationship problem is a very bad sign and problems have their place in countless types of relationships, let's explore the definition of relationships and the types of relationship problems together.

A relationship can be defined as a dynamic of emotional, physical, social, and material exchange between two or more people. Relationships are dynamic in their constantly changing and interactive nature.

Many changes and developments in life, in addition to the effects they have on people, are of great concern and affect the dynamic structure that develops between people. When there are changes that we cannot control, relationships are also negatively affected in various ways.

There are many areas where relationship problems can arise:

  • Communication Problems
  • Being inflexible
  • Not helping each other in the relationship
  • Respect Problems
  • Making Space Problem
  • Sexuality and intimacy problems
  • Lack of trust
  • Personal problems
  • Denying that problems exist

Communication Problems in Relationships

Communication is one of the first areas where problems in relationships manifest themselves. This is because what actually constitutes the relationship between two people is the communication they establish in the first place and the communication languages and forms they develop between them, which include many emotional and physical elements.

Communicating effectively includes many important elements, such as knowing each other and themselves, using words correctly and effectively, having empathy and tolerance, having the ability to approach criticism openly and without prejudice, and using body language well in addition to verbal language.

In this case, it is possible that individuals in the relationship dynamics may experience communication problems due to reasons such as not communicating effectively, waiting for the other party to understand instead of solving many things through effective communication, not being honest in their feelings and thoughts, not thinking before speaking, not being a good listener, etc.

Another reason for communication problems can be that instead of being constructive about the problems that are actually in the relationship, we can be destructive and accusatory by using very negative expressions.

When you have a problem, taking the following approaches will make it even more intractable and complicated instead of solving it:

  • Saying "I am uncomfortable with you" instead of "I am uncomfortable with this situation or this behavior"
  • Taking an attitude by directly cutting off communication instead of constructively sharing the problem and the feelings and thoughts that the problem arouses
  • When there is a problem, blaming instead of considering that both parties contributed to the problem
  • Saying "Come on, you're wrong, and you have to solve the problems," instead of cooperating and approaching it such as, "We're both wrong, and let's solve the problem together"

a couple having communication problems in a romantic relationship

These wrong approaches can add to the problem. Verbal or non-verbal communication between two people with simple physical and emotional expressions can save or worsen the relationship.

Inflexibility in Relationship

In fact, an environment is needed for communication problems to manifest themselves. It is the fact that people stand in the face of the expectations and wishes of the other party and do not compromise their own expectations and wishes, perhaps even their rules and principles.

We don't always have to agree with each other and see life from the same perspective in romantic, friendship, and family relationships. However, it is important to be flexible in line with the value we place on the person we are in a relationship with in order to keep our relationship at a healthier point, but people are often focused on protecting their own interests. So, they are not flexible. Being flexible and cooperating where there is a conflict of interest can be ways of reducing the problems between the parties in the relationship.

Not Cooperating in a Relationship

Everyone in life has a lot to keep up with. Especially nowadays, people are too busy juggling home, work, and relationships to even have time for their hobbies. Failure to cooperate within the relationship we are in is becoming a threat to both the relationship and our individual lives. For example, in a marital relationship where both spouses work, they should help each other with household chores and lighten each other's burden.

As with communication and flexibility, it is important not to fall into a conflict of interest by sacrificing ourselves, and to be aware that the other person is also human and may not be able to keep up with some issues. Failure to take this into account will cause problems. After all, if we are not going to help each other in life, why are we social beings, and why are we so insistent on building a common life?

The Problem of Respect in Relationships

In general, we build our relationships around love. When we meet or start spending time together, love and liking are the main positive emotions that arise between two people. In fact, when we think about romantic relationships, you know that when it comes to an intense set of emotions like love, the positive emotions go through the roof, and we don't even consider any negative traits.

Does the fact that we love each other very much and are happy and excited to spend time with each other and be together require us to respect each other? It doesn't, but it can be a reason. People who know and love each other very closely may feel more comfortable interfering with each other's opinions, actions, or preferences. At some point, this behavior leads to a lack of respect for the other person's choices.

Respect does not mean not meeting on common ground and not taking each other's views when necessary. Respect and showing respect start with recognizing that the other person may have boundaries. However, when people are in a relationship, they may think that most boundaries disappear and they become one. It is important to recognize that this is not a healthy pattern and can cause problems in the relationship.

The Problem of Creating Private Spaces in Relationships

In fact, today, this problem goes hand in hand with the lack of respect. When we don't respect each other, we enter each other's boundaries and even private spaces.

We have to admit that when you have a romantic partner or your best and closest friend in the world, they don't become one person in different bodies. Every human being needs private space. They may need to spend time alone, to see people other than the person they are in a close relationship with, to do different activities, to not tell and share everything that happens, and to keep some things to themselves.

We can create a long list of what private spaces are; in fact, there is a different structure for everyone, but the common thing about all private spaces is that everyone needs them.

If you and the people you are in a relationship with do not give each other private spaces or if you interfere with the private spaces that the parties have created for themselves and you always feel that you have to do things together, you may have a problem with creating private spaces. This can have negative consequences in the future as a relationship problem.

Problems with Sexuality and Intimacy in Relationships

Sexuality in romantic relationships and intimacy in all relationships are important issues. You may have heard many rules written and drawn about sexuality in romantic relationships. Patterns such as you should have sex this many times a week, you should have orgasms, you should fantasize may be familiar to you.

Not all couples have to have sex the same number of times and for the same duration, nor do they have to have sex in a similar way. However, the most important issue here is the compatibility of the partners.

We can be talking about healthy sexuality at a point where your interests, expectations, and desires match, or even if they don't, where you communicate what you need and prioritize each other's satisfaction. Otherwise, sexuality in the relationship can also become a problem.

In romantic relationships, as well as all other types of relationships, it is important to establish intimacy and to reflect that you are in close contact with each other. The meaning of intimacy is different for everyone, and having a similar understanding of intimacy with those you are in a family or friendship relationship with, even if you do not necessarily like the same things, will make relationships healthier.

Lack of Trust in Relationships

Trust is one of the indispensable parameters in all relationships. When we start a relationship, in order to trust, we need to get to know the other person and, through the process of getting to know them, form certain assumptions about them. If trust is still a problem as the relationship progresses, there are two factors to consider:

  • Do you have difficulty trusting people?
  • Does the other person have difficulty building trust?

drawing of a trust problem in romantic relationships

In fact, in both cases, there is a problem that concerns both parties. A person who does not trust you even though they do not trust you can also have a negative impact on the relationship, or if you do not provide the other party with the trust they deserve and keep them on their toes, this can also be a negative situation. Trust issues are serious matters that need to be resolved by reaching a compromise between the parties or by getting support.

Personal Problems in the Relationship

Relationship problems do not only occur within the relationship. Individuals may also have personal problems in their own lives. Because of the individual difficulties caused by personal problems, these problems can also cause problems in relationships. If there is a situation that seriously affects the relationship, it is important to get support from your friends, partner, or family, as well as expert support, in order to establish a healthy relationship.

The Problem of Denying a Problem in a Relationship

In fact, when all the problems listed in an item are evaluated in relation to each other, they can be divided into sub-items and varied. However, one of the biggest problems is not accepting and rejecting them despite all the problems. Without accepting that there is a problem, it will not be possible to work on it and try to fix it.

All of the problems mentioned above can be solved in certain ways. For example, if you are experiencing communication problems, you can improve yourself to communicate effectively and prefer to discuss the problems with the other party or get help from an expert. However, when you think that there is no problem, it will not be possible to create space for a solution or to look for a solution, and the problems that can be solved may affect your relationships more negatively and put them in a vicious cycle.

If the people living in the relationship do not notice this situation, perhaps their relatives will notice and warn them or draw their attention to this issue. We can say that listening to these warnings and taking action is the most beneficial way because even psychotherapy is a relationship that can be started with individuals who come voluntarily, while problems will continue to exist in two-way relationships without a desire and effort to solve them.

You can get psychological counseling from expert online therapists at Hiwell Online Psychological Counseling to build a judgment-free relationship that will bring you one step closer to solving your relationship problems!

The Power of Astrology in Solving Love Problems

Astrology, an age-old practice that has intrigued and fascinated humanity for centuries, is more than just a tool to predict the future. It holds a unique power when it comes to solving love problems.

In this article, we will delve into the fascinating world of astrology and how it can be harnessed to navigate the complex terrain of love and relationships.

Understanding the Basics of Astrology

What is Astrology?

Astrology is the belief that the positions and movements of celestial bodies, such as planets and stars, can have a profound influence on human affairs and natural phenomena. It is a symbolic language that interprets the correlation between celestial events and human experiences.

Birth Charts and Horoscopes

At the heart of astrology lies the birth chart, also known as the natal chart or horoscope. This chart is a personalized map of the sky at the exact moment and place of an individual's birth. It provides valuable insights into one's personality, strengths, weaknesses, and life path.

Love and the Zodiac Signs

The Role of Zodiac Signs

Zodiac signs play a crucial role in understanding love compatibility. Each sign possesses distinct traits and characteristics that can either complement or clash with those of another sign. For instance, fiery Aries may find harmony with adventurous Sagittarius, while sensitive Cancer may form a deep connection with nurturing Pisces.

Compatibility and Sun Signs

Your sun sign, determined by your birth date, is a primary indicator of your core personality. Astrologers analyze the compatibility between sun signs to assess the potential harmony or challenges in a romantic relationship.

Astrology Tools for Love Problem Solving

Synastry is a powerful tool in astrology used to analyze the compatibility between two individuals. By comparing the positions of planets in both birth charts, astrologers can identify areas of tension and harmony within the relationship. This knowledge allows couples to work on their issues constructively.

Transit Analysis

Transits refer to the ongoing movements of planets in the sky and how they affect your natal chart. Astrologers can predict significant life events, including those related to love, by examining these transits. This insight helps individuals prepare for potential challenges and seize opportunities for growth in their relationships.

Seeking Guidance from Astrologers

The Role of Professional Astrologers

While many people dabble in astrology, seeking guidance from a professional astrologer can provide deeper insights and solutions to love problems. Experienced astrologers can offer personalized advice, helping individuals make informed decisions about their relationships.

In a world where love can be both beautiful and complex, astrology offers a unique lens through which to understand and navigate the intricate dynamics of relationships. Whether you're seeking to enhance your current partnership or find a new love, the power of astrology can illuminate your path.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can astrology predict my soulmate?

While astrology can provide insights into compatibility, it cannot predict a specific individual as your soulmate. It can, however, offer guidance on finding a compatible partner.

Is astrology a science?

Astrology is not considered a science by mainstream scientific communities. It is often classified as a pseudoscience due to its reliance on celestial positions for interpretation.

Can astrology save a failing relationship?

Astrology can provide insights and guidance, but it cannot single-handedly save a failing relationship. It can be a valuable tool for self-reflection and improving communication within a partnership.

Are horoscopes accurate?

Horoscopes are generalized interpretations based on sun signs and do not account for the complexity of an individual's entire birth chart. They are meant for entertainment rather than precise predictions.

How can I find a reputable astrologer for relationship advice?

Look for astrologers with recognized credentials and positive reviews. Recommendations from friends or family who have benefited from astrology consultations can also be helpful.

Zodiac signs are important in Astrology as they represent different attributes and traits. Astrologers look at a couple’s compatibility based on the signs they share to determine the relationship’s possible strengths as well as weaknesses. Elements (air, earth, fire, water) and modalities (fixed, cardinal, mutable) provide additional information to these compatibility assessments. 

  • Venus : The planet of beauty, love and harmony. Its placement in the birth chart might reveal a person’s love expression and desire patterns.
  • Mars : Governing energy and passion, Mars has an impact on how disputes and problems are managed in a relationship.

  • Mercury : Communication is key in relationships. Mercury’s position might show how well a couple communicates their feelings and opinions. 

Astrological Solutions For Love Relationship Problems 

Astrology provides numerous methods for reducing the malice of planets. As a result, the love problems between couples can be resolved without breaking the relationship. Astrologers advocate wearing an activated (energetic) Moonga gemstone for anger troubles in a relationship. It should be worn as a ring in a silver band or locket in a silver chain. You can also perform a Rudra Abhishek puja to lessen aggression. The next solution for mistrust between a couple is chanting the Vashikaran Mantra to rekindle trust in the relationship. Offering a flute to Lord Sri Krishna is a remedy for rejection in love.
