Mariage Problems Revealed in 6 Ways

Not coping with marital problems can mean a build up of animosity; hurt feelings and can cause the other to be emotionally detached from by one spouse. Below are six hints that you can have waited too much time to keep your marriage.

1. You Frequently Dream Without Your Partner

It happens to most couples during times. That is an indication that you’re put within an unpleasant scenario and you are not able to find a solution. It is a for sure indication that you simply need before it’s too late to seek marital therapy.

If you end up longing for life away from your partner I encourage you to share those feelings with your partner. It may not be the most comfortable discussion you will have but, your spouse has a right to know that you’re challenging if you want to be wed.

2. The Bad in The Marriage Outweighs The Good

You want to get help in learning the best way to face the issues causing the difficulties in the union, if there’s more trouble than paradise. Inactivity is fed on by difficulties. Not taking measures that are pro-active to solve marital difficulties will bring about other problems and it just is sensible that the bad would soon outweigh the good in your union.

Do yourself, your spouse and your union a party favor and do not allow the scales tip too much in how to handle those negative marital dilemmas before seeking help and guidance to the bad.

3. You Keep Things to Yourself

Do you wind up fearing talking about marital problems or life generally to your partner? Communicating is an important means to alleviate stress and build a fitter bond between couples. A union can’t live where there are issues of trust.

4. If either of you are too defensive, dismissive of the other’s feelings, show contempt for the beliefs of the other or engaging in tactics that are stonewalling you are at high risk. When conflict is averted when trying to handle struggle or defense mechanisms that are negative are engaged, you are not enabling balanced conflict resolution.

5. You Feel Like you’re the only person Attempting to Solve Issues

Are you really frustrated because every time you try and discuss marital issues you are pulled away from by your spouse? Perhaps you have tried to express that you no longer care and you’re the one distancing themselves from the marriage. It isn’t unusual for either spouse if they feel the issues in the marriage are being avoided by the other spouse to withdraw. Eventually one or the other partner will shut down and no longer be considering solving the marital difficulties.

6. You Infrequently, if Have Sex

Maybe one of you needs sex and another doesn’t desire sex. Maybe you’ve both ceased needing that intimate link with each other. A marriage that lacks affection and sexual intimacy will wind up in divorce or end up being a marriage of convenience, whatever the reason. One in which you remain for the children’s sake or because you’re frightened of change.

Avoiding a major marital issue such as a dearth of sex causes a union to die on the vine, it breeds resentment in the partner who is feeling less than satisfied and it breaks that bond that all marriages should be built on…the closeness bond.


Commonly Encountered Problems in Marriage


The relationship that is most commonly reported problem by far is communication. This may be one among the most extensive & most difficult terms. It tends to have many meanings that are different . For the purposes of this explanation I define it as “Mis-Understanding”.

This means not understanding another person’s perspective. That is frequently more an issue of refusing to let the existence of the other’s view instead of not comprehending it! It is an unwillingness to take some time care and to truly listen to understand.

We must be prepared to see the world through another’s eyes, not simply our own, to truly understand they. If we listened as well as we spoke, really joining would look after itself

In many relationships the interest seems to lie chiefly in getting one’s own point of view heard and comprehended rather than having a fascination with hearing and understanding the others’. If individuals cared to listen to another person with just as much interest as she or he wished they would be listened to by the other, both would find yourself receiving exactly what they are searching for!


A regular source of misinterpretation in relationships is open bags from youth.

That is just one simple example of old bags can follow us in ways we may not be conscious of. There are many more including the appropriate way manage cash and to raise kids, how you relate to, your preconceived ideas and experiences regarding sexuality, and self esteem issues.

For example, in case a man grew up in a loud, violent or abusive environment, arguing that man’s answer to contradiction, or confrontation confrontation, would be different than a person whose home environment was proficient and healthy . As a rule, in relationships, “like attracts like”. So it is common for people who share lousy conflict resolution abilities bring and to discover someone who has similarly small skills (frequently without any comprehension this is what they have done). In these relationships there will be loads of communication . . . Merely not the type that leads to any resolution that is useful!

Bed with our partner could be really packed with invisible and unwanted visitors, occasionally when we are in it.

Among the most depressing setups in relationships is entering with then over time and all types of expectancies into them, feeling disappointed again and again they have not been fulfilled. Part of the problem relates to the youth baggage I mentioned. We often have preconceived expectations of what marriage and relationships should be like.

This can be derived from numerous sources, not the least of which is the union and relationship of our parents. That’s the one we lived and breathed 24 hours a day, seven days per week. That kind of exposure gets consumed, some on a conscious level, some on an unconscious one. The largest difficulty with expectancies in general is that we may understand what our expectations are, but it unlikely that our partner does! There’s one additional difficulty . . . contrary to popular opinion, it isn’t the other individual’s responsibility to fulfill you expectancies. It’s your occupation to learn to fill yourself up and then offer all.

not on what they were bringing to the celebration. Again, we are frequently not quite aware that this is our mindset.

We must be prepared to look carefully and honestly at ourselves to see if these are truths. Not everybody is willing to get this done. To truly comprehend what you are seeing in another, you must first hold up a mirror and comprehend what you are seeing there.


This subject is complex and so enormous an area I can just give the briefest of openings in this format. Sex is one of the most typical regions of conflict in many relationships, but make no mistake, it doesn’t stand alone. Ruling out any medical or physical causes of difficulty, it is almost always in some way a reflection of whatever state the relationship is in. For instance, if communications are becoming withholding and hostile (for defense or punishment purposes) that hostility shows itself sexually too. Frequently that is one of the natural results of what I mentioned in “Unfulfilled Expectations”.

Chronic disappointment and dashed expectations can manifest in a relationship in a serious loss of closeness. Unable to identify what the expectations are, no less clear them up, makes matters even worse. In case there is a dearth of closeness regarding the basic camaraderie in the relationship, it’s also expressed (or not!) in some way in the bedroom.

To further complicate issues, as rule sexual interactions mean something different to guys than they do to women. Women enjoy before they become linked to feel connected. Sexual activity is often used by guys, on the other hand, . Ever see how much more he listens and talks after lovemaking? There is no coincidence there, ladies. And men, ever discover how much more curious she is in sex after you’ve offered her some “real listening time” about something she actually cares about?

The principal issue here is that it’s a mistake to hold your partner responsible for your needs. Instead, you would do better to look at how desirable you’ve made yourself for your partner with your own behavior and dispositions.

If your sex life is in need of a tune-up, odds are your relationship needs tuning.


Resentments are the number one killer of relationships. They’re a slow poison, undermining the love, confidence and reciprocal esteem you might have had with each other. It is critical in treating relationships to uncover these frequently unknown or unspoken resentments. Each individual is subsequently responsible for finding the part they played in the development of these resentments along with what they can do in order to improve themselves. The focus isn’t on the way the other man has to change, but rather on what you can do to change yourself to bring something better to the party. No blaming, just self-duty. It’s consistently a dancing of two, never just of one.

Resentments crop up immediately as communicating dwindles, expectations are not met and old hurts (many of two in the early years) start to get “triggered” by relationship dilemmas in the present. That is a really common, yet ordinarily unknown source of pain in marriages. Triggers are present experiences that bear a resemblance to ways in which you’ve been hurt, left or treated stemming from days gone by. They’re often not consciously linked to what’s happening in your present relationship, but they’re clear to be seen when they have been revealed to you personally.

Sometimes we have to think long and challenging so as to make these links. A red flag this is what’s occurring is that you will be perceived to be overreacting to whatever is happening in the present . . . sound familiar?

Resentments frequently build as a primary consequence of a person’s inability to communicate their needs and/or take responsibility for them. Resentments lead straight to lack of esteem for the other individual. Lack of esteem leads to sexual problems, more terrible feelings, blame and distancing. Is not it fascinating how all these issues just combine together in one enormous, swirl that is connected? The simple truth is, unless we show the readiness and the courage to take complete responsibility for what belongs to us, which another person failed to put there we can never really honor ourselves! Once the old hurts are neutralized (to all the new ones we’ve tacked on over the years) and each individual has shown the courage to possess their part much healing is not impossible.

If you have ever been forgiven for your “falls from grace” in life, you realize how powerful a healing experience it is. Much as resentments are toxin to a relationship, ownership and reciprocal forgiveness are its redemption.



Talk about a killer of trust and commitment . . . here is the number one
offender. My view on this deadly behavior is that this activity occurs as a result of the breakdown of the relationship, rather than being the cause of the breakdown. Do not mistake this as any kind of condoning of this behavior on my part. No way. I simply want to point out that people who are content and fulfilled within the marriage, virtually never look outside of it to fill themselves up. Affairs are often used as a way to lick one’s wounds, to escape from the difficulties of the current relationship, to abandon the responsibility we have to work on the troubles in our relationships straight-up, rather than behind closed and secretive doors with someone else. Sorry folks, it doesn’t work that way.

If your connection to your partner is missing big pieces, start by looking at what you are bringing to the party. If you’re empty and unfulfilled in your relationship, perhaps it’s because you are not offering all you could be to it! Looking for comfort elsewhere simply adds more pain and suffering to what was already present. If you are the one who strayed, you have the responsibility for failing to courageously face the part you played in the unsatisfying elements of your relationship. If your own relationship was where you put your energy (rather than with someone else) then your own relationship would have gotten the benefit of your growth, rather than the pain of your broken vows.

Relationships can heal from this most devastating of betrayals, but full responsibility, remorse and true commitment to self-development must be the foundation for the healing. You must be willing to do whatever it takes to rebuild the trust that’s been lost. Nothing less will do. Many do not have the courage or character to take this on. If you do, you have the chance to create an even deeper, more meaningful relationship . . . “What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger”.


Although these are certainly not all of the relationship troubles which can befall us, they are the most common ones reported to me over the last 20 years. They seem quite universal. Within each one of these issues lies a wealth of fascinating information one can learn about oneself, which can open the doors to a quality of relationship you have not previously known. Make no mistake; it can be a great deal of hard work uncovering the hidden aspects of yourself which cause you to trip and fall. It is also worth every moment of the time and energy you put into it. Like anything else you reap what you sow. Personal growth is no exception. Unfortunately, it seems to be the preference of many to take the easy route and simply blame others for their relationship woes. This, my friend, is a dead end street. Been there, done that, doesn’t fly. I encourage all of you who so deeply want that connected, loving and satisfying relationship, to invest yourself in what it takes to have it. You won’t regret it.
