Relationship problems

Relationship problems

All relationships require work and face challenges. Relationship difficulties can arise from both issues within the relationship and outside stressors. There doesn’t have to be a big crisis, often it is an accumulation of issues which have built up over months or years until one partner decides something needs to change.
