Understanding Relationship, Marriage, and Family Problems
Every relationship experiences issues and problems at one point or another. These issues start with arguments for many reasons, sometimes over money and sometimes over sex, etc.
All the issues start from arguments due to poor communication. Some couples are very talkative, and some are non-talkers. Some get issues because communication was better at the start of the relationship but then slows down or stopped listening to each other. Sometimes little conversations turn into battles. All these issues can be sorted out if couples are willing to identify the problems and basic issues between them and make some changes.
If you are facing any of these situations, just ask yourself. What happened that day during your conversation? What are things that turned into a battle, and when did I stop listening and understanding my partner?
Think about your mistakes and how you can recover them. Select talk time and place with your partner and try to use “I” statements in this situation because when people get defensive, they stop listening to others.
There are several common and basic problems in married life, and some people succeed in avoiding them, and some succeed in fixing and resolving them with different methods and techniques.
Some of the most common marriage problems are infidelity (such as one-night stand, physical infidelity, internet affairs), sexual differences (such as loss of libido either in man or woman or sexual preference like different positions), values and beliefs (religious differences or disagreement with marriage), and life stages (due to significant age gap either from man side or woman side as the age grows, personalities changes and issues might come).
The traumatic situation also becomes a cause of marriage problems because one partner doesn't know how to handle it. It creates pressure, and relation ends. Stress is also one of the major reasons for marriage problems; it may be financial stress, family stress, or mental illness.
Everyone faces different types of issues when living in a family. Marrying your loved one and starting a family is a good thing, but some problems came across the journey of life. It depends on us how we deal and react to those issues and problems.
Every person has its personality, so every family has flaws. There are many common reasons that cause issues. Many arguments in the family are healthy and clear the air, but some arguments are abusive that ruin the environment for every person living in the family. Arguments have a significant effect on kids. It directly hits their mind and brings changes in their behaviour and decisions.
Parenting decisions also create family problems because most of the family fights start with the question of how the kids should be raised. Not only this, the problems continued, and parents fought on disciplinary training, schooling, religions, and many others. All these situations create a bad impact on the kids' minds, and they start thinking negatively.
