No marriage is perfect. If a couple claims that theirs is, then it’s more than likely that one or both are not being honest with themselves or their partner. This can seriously damage a relationship, in both the short and long term. Part of being human is that we experience emotions and we experience problems if our needs are not being met. How you handle these problems in a relationship is crucial as to whether or not you’ll have a healthy marriage.
Lack of Communication.
Poor or little communication is the most common problem and is at the root of 99% of relationship issues. Perhaps you feel your partner is not interested in you or you have nothing in common anymore, so you don’t bother discussing what’s going on in your life anymore. It could be that you have started living separate lives although you share the same home.
When married couples stop communicating and don’t talk about any underlying problems openly and honestly, things begin to fester and resentment sets in. All relationships needs nurturing. That means taking the time to ask your loved one about their day and their feelings about things and making the effort to share about yours.
There are many couples where one or both don’t trust their partners even with no factual foundation for jealousy. It could be you or your other half who’s insecure but the relationship can quickly become toxic if steps aren’t taken to take control of it.
It will help if you talk things through and find a way to understand what is driving any insecurity and help you work past the lack of trust. It’s not about attributing blame it’s about understanding both of your perspectives. Each party need to feel safe and secure in a marriage and that can only happen if both sides show understanding and acceptance.
The Passion Has Died
Passion within a relationship can diminish if you allow it to. Keeping passion alive takes hard work and effort, but it is worth it. That means doing new and exciting things, exploring your sexuality, challenging each other, thinking of new ways to give and receive pleasure. This is great for your mental health too and makes you a more relaxed person and someone who is great company. When you and your partner spend more time with each other and remember the things you love about each other, things can get back to normal even if you’ve started experiencing boredom and intimacy issues in your marriage.
Marriage problems can only be avoided or resolved if you decide to do something about it.
